she is a tidy 5 with tlc needed to the body work but the engine is sound and goes well. My plan for her is to tidy the body up and go for the infamous 200 bhp figure so will need a full T25 with the spec of the car.

Done a wheel change to the 5 as the snow has gone now. I need to raise the torsion bar up a bit as the profile on the tyres is to big for the back bumper. I've also got rid of the dv thank good really starts to wear thin after 400 miles lol.
Heres a couple of pics

WTF!? That's nicole?!  :shock:  :shock:  :shock: That can't be?
