Took some better pictures today.... Lovin driving it now as well, got the boost up a bit & she pulls well through the gears, the torson diff takes some getting used to though  :twisted:





Just need to get the rear ARB welded up & the front poly kit on & it should handle like a dream as well.

Looks well nice love them alloys, they seem to look good on most cars !!

The ARB that needs welding is it the passenger side ?? As I had to get my coupe done... Apparently its a common issue and always the passenger side !!

Now the car is running & the boost is up she pulls realy well, just need to sort the rest of the poly bushes & hope to get the rear ARB welded later this week (40) then had a quote for 180 to sort the dent & scratches on the pass side, 80 to paint the wing when I can be arsed to sort it..
Then FMIC & bigger turbo on the way.
The T25 on the car is almost new so will be up for sale (idela upgrade for the GTT ;) )

Doesn't feel anywhere near as tight as the GTT did yet, hopefully the full poly kit & the rear ARB will sort this :)

You'd probably get a wing in that colour from a rover breaker cheaper than that !!
