Shes just over a week old :P - For me anyway, last owner was a polish woman who only did 600 miles in a year (MOT Documents to prove) And is in good nick!

The £1000 I got out the bank - was tempted to ask for it in £5 notes ;) Managed to haggle down to £935 in the end so that was good.

And here she is :fcuk:

Every hubcap is scuffed to bits, will make this my first purchase I think :)

Planned improvements/Mods will be made eventually, but seeing I was made redundant the day after I bought the car :wall: I'm struggling to keep the thing on the road (insurance and fuel) let alone mod. Already got a headunit in, £80 from halfords and you couldn't tell the difference between that and a £150 one :)

- Hubcaps (Eventually alloys, but they defiantly need replacing asap :P)
- Tint the back windows
- 6x9's and a Sub :cool:
- Lower, probs 50mm but need to find out it it'll get over the roadbumps as there are loads of them round St.Neots :wall:
- Some sort of snazzy exhaust
- Angel/Lexus lights all over, not fully decided yet.

Comments and suggestions are welcome :)

Very nice! Enjoy it and have fun with the mods.

A stereo is a must and glad you have it high on the list.

:D







On a side note I went down to Denver today with my brother to look at a '95 Subaru Impreza with a JDM STI engine swap. Talk about a sleeper! An old 2 door Subaru with over 300 turbo charged all-wheel-drive horsepower! :w00t: !!!!

Duuuude, where's your neon lights underneath.
You're 20 foot ironing board... I mean spoiler.
Huge exhausts - illegally removed silencer.
High bass that plays a repetitive Nnn, Chh, Nnn, Chh beat. :D
