Here are some pictures of my motor

that was as my car was picked up, hated the rear wiper and aerial so made it a point to change those as one of the first jobs

as you can see i got the rear wiper and aerial changed, they make such a difference to the car as well. i have remove the sticker in the back window now as well :wink:

as above thats a picture of the painted calipers now as well which i did the other week, look much better than the standard grey/rusty colour that was developing on them. i have also got some scn stickers and front aero wipers fitted since but no pictures, the wipers are not right despite being the right size i need to adjust them when i get the time. also getting a tax disk holder from the british gp as well this weekend when i am there

as for future plans i want to get it tinted but not ott, not sure if i should get the current wheels refurbed and repainted anthracite or get some new audi rs6 replica wheels and do that to them or not. also an oval tipped exhaust and looks wise i am about where i want to be with the car, going for the stealth look for my car

beyond that it depends what i can afford, long term plan is big turbo upgrade but other stuff needs doing before then so its down to what i can afford really

Nice Leon indeed. 8)

I had a black 1.8T Cupra that looked very similar. If I hadn't have needed an estate, I would probably still have it now.

I had RS8's on mine (5 years ago before they were done to death), and they did look really good with the black. I also had a Milltek exhaust. It fills the cut out in the bumper much better but looks stock until you see it next to an original one.

thanks, providing the weather holds out this weekend the plan is to debadge the rear after seeing all the other leon's this weekend i have decided it needs to be done

also going to get an lcr splitter put on the front as well when i get the time and money to do so

externally though for now thats about it for a while, had a comment that my mother thought the exhaust is going so if it is then i will be getting a new piper non silenced oval cat back exhaust for it

Best to stay away from reps if you can.

Been there, done that, most are crap.
