    (you can see i was also caught out by the thousands of nats around )

    i have the centre caps for the wheels, just debating if i want them on or off atm. (they are just a plain circle)

    i want to get the alloys refurbished, was thinking of doing them white, but seeing them in this dark-grey colour, they look quite swish!

    wouldnt bother with any more mods on it, looks fine as it is. Save the money you would spend on mods for a better car. Dont forget, if you mod it much more, you'll have to declare to the insurance too :)

    Good first car though, should provide a few years cheap motoring :)

    I agree, it's fine how it is, and your money will be better off spent towards another car. :)

    Get those centre caps on, im sorry but they look crap without them.

    Could do with the wheels refurbing in either stock colour or black and yes, lowering a tad, will be looking great when thats done.

    it was just a thought

    it's not really 'moded' now is it? ;) more.. 'restored'

    this is how the wheels look with the centre caps on:

    Nice motor - get those door handles colour coded too. :)

    I think those alloys look better without the centre caps.

    and yeh, the tyres are leaking... not getting a proper seal on the alloys 'cause the lacquer is peeling. taking them off today and refurbing them
