More when I get back.

Thinking I may get new discs next month, the brakes seem a little weird. Long travel on the pedal before anything happens.

Looks great. How much of a drop is that?


On the box it says 35mm-40mm. It looks lower though, after a week or two it'll bed in nicely so should be around 5mm lower than it sits in those pics.

Right folks it's been a while I know. Work has been mad lately, missed the Irish meet set up my Lenny and the lads because of it.

Anyways I managed to get a few things done, got mud flaps on the rear, finally, all lines up nicely.

Big one today: got my Apex springs on and boy does she look amazing. Perfect. The springs are surprisingly comfortable, not crashy or bumpy at all. The mech actually rang me twice today to chat about how good the car looked lol

Next big thing now will be painting the lower front lip black and getting my front flaps on.

Great peace of mind having done the timing belt mate,
Look forward to some pics on Tuesday evening, mudflaps alone seem to make the car look lower, will look great lowerd and handle even better,
Aswell as looking forward to seeing it at the meet next saturday hopfully the weather is dry on the day won't be long now :)


Just saw your tutorial on mud flaps, might have another go myself at fitting them.

Im getting the Apex 35-45 springs fitted, looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll lower by 40 all round.

Just silly things, new led bulbs for the front, zetec s lower and St upper grill, new wheel studs :) plus she going into the body shop on Monday for a little touch up haha I really need a cheaper hobby :(


Dont we all. I just had my timing belt done yesterday just out of fear, not necessity lol £170 down the tubes. After the springs itll be Cree bulbs for rear and possibly some darker tint on the windows as i carry lots if musical gear ie guitars/amps. The factory tint just isnt dark enough. Possible tinted sunstrip too like i had on my mk7 fiesta.

I'll be leaving from Belfast direction bud so if your looking a play mate for the way down I can meet you surely :)


Thanks dude, once I decide if I'm going or not I'll surely take you up on that offer.

If you turn off the M1 around Ardee co. Louth and travel straight through Ardee up the N2 that takes you through a more scenic route through slain and bypassing ashbourne still a great road and no drogheda toll,
Still brings you on to the M50 aswell,
More scenic thats the way i go,
And after the meet ill be heading to co.monaghan going down N2 aswell


Actually that's the way I went the first time, Slain is beautiful but I missed it the last time somehow.Lol.

Londonderry would be the furthest at 3hr away. 
 
Thoughts guys?


That's the only thing that's stopping me really, I've only recently done a round trip to dublin and back home via Belfast. The road to dublin is sooo boring. I'll have a think though I may still be up for it.
