Chris

looking at lowering it! it would make the alloys look better (theyre only 15s)

thought about a spoiler to but ... [:|] not sure

also fancy angel eye headlamps too, loads of stuff buzzing around

could do with a respray its got plenty of scratches but its all £££ well see lol

mite not do much, would ideally want to upg to TDI or GTI some time in the future once ive got a few more years and ncb

Indigo Blue is the right colour mate.  One of the best colours on the Mk4, IMO.

waheey i was right lol, i though it was, but i was only going off other cars!

its a great colour for keeping clean, and a lovely shine once its had a bit of tlc.

its scratched to buggery at the mo which i really need to try and do something about but not sure which products etc.

mostly small scratches nothing to deep

really? i was thinking that or forget the wiper and stick an aero one on! they look a bit tidyer.

it'd deff look much better smoothed anyway, thinking of getting pressed plates to, those are knackered, especially the front one!

just trying to save funds for the lowering anyway!

 thats what I thought, my girlfriends dad said he might give me a hand with the rears, theyre easy enough.


have done them on a fiesta before without to much effort, were going to do the rear wiper tomorrow possibly because the cap needs cutting down a bit.
