At moment am just really enjoying the car - mechanically its spot on!

Plans are to get a standard front bumper (without much success)

Then just general tidying up

Cheers for comments, has taken alot of time to get the car to this standard

wasnt happy with how front grill and bumper sat, so after abit of modding and a jack i got a much more pleasing result!

Friday was MOT day and the R5 passed with flying colours!  :D

(http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee250/Mauncerblades/DSC00140-1.jpg)

Also managed a few other things on the car,suspension has been raised to -30mm and torsion bar adjusted to match, have fitted a pipercross airfilter as the standard airbox doesnt seem to like the cup mod!

Plus have got these to fit  :D
