As you can see a broken foglight :eek: but I got a new one. That brings me to question 1: Is it possible to polish the glas of the foglight so it looks like new?

As seen on these pictures I also got a little scratch on the side. So question 2: is it possible to fix this cheap (polishing?) or do I have to respay it?

How much do they cost on 16"s? Expencive? Big wheels for a 1.2?

For 195/55R15 I've been quoted 75 quid!

Nice car buddy :) i do like the standard wheels though - if only they wer 17's ay! I do like the finish as well much beta than the normal silver.. I'd give a go at polishing out your scratches 1st, try a bit of t-cut. Then if they really bug you get em touched up!

My bridgstone are 205/45R16 and the standard equiped rims with michelin are 195/65R15 so the 16" are "smaller" then the 15".

The 16"are only wider. see attachment...

Thnks for your comment.

And could you explain to me what t-cut is because I think it's a english word and the dutch word is totally different so if you could explain it I can go on and buy it :worship: .

195/65R15 seem big for standard. Especially since my marea takes 195/55R15s.

Anyway still a nice looking car! But can't see the 'dirty' engine pics :D

p.s. I hate you for having a 130 weekend :p

t-cut is basically a type of polish! Sorry i cant describe it any better, but it seems to get rid of scratches better! Than your normal polish - im not sure of the difference of subtances, maybe someone else could help!

Now you say it I think they used bigger tyres, a wel they look and drive great :slayer: .

Haha indeed it's a great car (engine ;) ) but it's more for THE ride than just A ride. I drive it around for work but i'm thinking about chiptuning it i've read sites that could bring it up to 190BHP :eek: don't know if I should believe that but +35BHP should be a go. Anyway I will take some good pictures of it and post them never done that because i just (few months) got it from my dad.

At least I will tune up the 1.2 (turbo anyone?).

Oke I understand it a bit more I will try to find something similar. I also think it will come in hand when I debadge it.
You can't feel the scrathes by the way.

T-cut probably won't work for this, there's a load of lacquer over the paint. Better off with just normal polish IMO. 195/50/r15 tyres are what I have on my 15s on the Brava, these are the closest fit to the standard ones that came with it. Iv'e also found a wider exhaust pipe and panel filter makes a world of difference to the car, can only imagine what it could do if I had more money :D

I'm keeping the 65 on the 15" when they need replacement because they don't look to big and it adds comfort :p ...

Haha I can imagine actually. I'm going to try an lift her over the 100BHP (chip, exhaust, filter and replace some engine parts) but I think that is a pretty easy go so maybe 110BHP :p .
