Thanks for the info and good to know they have it in Halfords.

Liking how the buggy fits and with a bit os space to spare. That enclosure just for that is money well spent :)

Looking good there Lenny. It's all coming along nicely. I like how all the amps are on one side.

 

With regards to your wires, I put my 4 awg wires under the side sill on the left of the car. I just tucked them on the inside after going from behind the glovebox. I had to take out the glovebox to make that work. 

 

Sadly can't help you out with rivets :(

 

As for the torx, let me know when you find out as it's something I too want to know.

 

Best of luck with the upgrade. 

 

Gutted about Top Gear but still Clarkson should not punch other people.

Will have a quick look when I'm home tonight as I had a few links on Ebay.de for it. Have a look there as well as there's always deals to be had. How much is the cheapest place you found so far with shipping?

Your attention to detail never ceases to amaze me. Case and point, the plastic ball head cap. That was a nice touch. 

 

Roll on more updates :)

Cheapest place I found it with shipping was on www.Ebay.de Ebay Germany had a lot of them and they worked out cheaper than Uk counterparts. Guessing that it being manufactured in Germany helps.

 

Good luck with the talking. If you need an argument to help you convince the missus,  tests show that it saves you about 13% fuel. They have it on their website in the tests for the Mustang GT. You would recoup that money very quickly if you drove a lot. Just saying  :)

Heard only great things about the Eibach springs. A few members here have it on their Mk2.5 Focus. I was planning on getting them but got really tempted on getting the Bilstein B12 Pro Kit which consists of Bilstein B8 dampers and Eibach Pro Kit springs. Something else to consider if you planning suspension mods.

 

Also, check out the Whiteline rear Anti Roll Bar  :D

Sounds awesome! I have only seen this on tv before. I think the TVR Tuscan had something like it? I will check out Page 76  :)

Fpr myself, if I were to get the front and rear diffusers, I wouldn't bother with the skirts unless they came up real cheap from a breakers.
Car looking good there Yuni.

Good call. That's how I got most of my stereo equipment. I just waited as I was in no rush.

That's pants!

Keep looking mate. You are bound to find one owned by a careful granny with very little miles as she only took the car to the shops abd mass on Sunday :)

Also, if you can have a look at another car with the side skirts, that might help you make up your mind. Keep an eye out on breakers as you never know what might come in if you are not in a hurry for the part  :)

I know how it feels to have ridiculous insurance quotes. Paid €1300 or thereabouts for a Renault Megane 1.4L Petrol here a few years back. It was ridiculous as I was over 30 at the time but with no NCB. Utter pants!

I think you could leave the side skirts out, wait till one pops up on Ebay/breakers and then decide if you really want it. Just with the front and rear bumpers, the car will look a lot better. The mudflaps do look nice and does protect the paint as well. I also like the idea of having the front grill painted gloss black. Adds a bit of flair to the front end.
