This week there has been a few mods made to the car.

First off the ScanGaugeII...

(See my guide on how to do this)

And also a new set of wheels, Iv been looking at/wanting a set of these for a long time now and some come up just at the time I had to buy 4 new tyres for the existing wheels, so used that as an excuse to buy these :D

Before:

After (Excuse the filth!!)

It sits a little bit high, but no where near as bad as I expected... So im happy for now. The wheels are a little bit shabby, but not too bad, when I have some spare cash il have them refurbed, and il also lower the car with Eibachs.

What do you think?

Thanks mate.

Boost readings at roughly 2000rpm are 17.5PSI which I beleive is about 1.6bar? Voltage readings are perfect (Ought to be seems its a brand new battery) Time to play with other settings and functions not to mention the colour selection! :D

ST rear Spoiler and lowering would transform the appearance of it no end mate.
the st spoiler would carry the flow of the car better and the lowering would make it sit nice on those lovely alloys.
but its your car and ive already caused enough financial dammage to people on here Posted Image

Thanks for the comments.

To do list is:
Interior LED lights
Wheels refurbed
Cambelt change (belt or chain???) in 8K
ST spoiler? Maybe....

All will come when funds allow.
