Well been a long time since I've been on here ( hi rvm ) - Got rid of my ek9 maybe 6-7 years ago now didn't buy anything remotely exciting

Had a 320d m sport estate dumped on 19" bolas then I had to go work in Bulgaria for most this year and decided to treat myself upon coming home

I'll update this thread as I progress on building it into nothing but a sprint/fast weekend blaster and I'll update with the spec soon

Here's some pics for now





I machine polished it with my mate we've got a rupes Bigfoot and a vertool forced drive used a range of products from Scholl concepts, chemical guys, wax addict wax

Quality cars, always loved these when they've got all the right parts like this one :cool:

Out of curiosity what lift is that you're using? Don't suppose you have a link? Looks ideal for what I'm after, fed up of jack my car up and using axle stands. :nono: The "quick jack" systems don't seem to lift the car very high, and they're not mega cheap to be honest.

It's a sealey body shop ramp that's at my mates house as the garage is big enough for two cars but not a two poster perfect for his Evo and the glanza

Well it was meant to be on the road by now but having some issues with the 6 pots can't get the pedal feel decent at all so going to delete the abs and upgrade the master cylinder and hope this solves the issue! Car is the bane of my life

Mate made a custom heatshield to stop us scorching the varis bonnet, bay should look alot better with the abs module and pump removed

It looks gorgeous! I love the white on white look.
How it feels, was it worth the time and efforts?(I'm pretty sure that it was)
