Gonna put all my threads into one here..

Here is how I got her.. not to my exact taste but i couldn't turn down the deal I got it for with my golf!





yes your eyes do not decieve you, that is pink under the bonnet and on the calipers -_-

changed things up a little bit and looks a load better already!
the pictures are from my blackberry so really aren't amazing but you get the jist..





mine and a friends facelift...


with the other ek9 and another friends altezza..


and again..



I removed the tilt brackets, redone all of the pink bits in black, done a decent service on the car and just generally gave it a good clean up..

the car has a few bits done to it already so i'm just planning to track it next year and maybe if the funds/time allows then i may be going for a k swap or maybe a b18 turbo but i'll see how it goes..

i'm sure some of you will remember the car as one of the previous owners was a member on here.. The car is my pride and joy and i'll be sure to look after it ;)

meanwhile the car will be coming off road for the winter soon and i'll be heading up to nottingham (from ye olde devon) for the christmas period and the car will once again get some loving when i'm back!

Well it stands me in at a reasonable price, but I'll keep that to myself haha ;)
No I haven't sold the wheels iv'e decided to keep them a bit longer as they really are growing on me, had a lot of compliments so for the time being they will stay..

No updates yet BUT :(

I'm going to have to sell the car at the end of january :(

Literally ruins me thinking about it!

I haven't got enough posts on here to advertise so I guess It'll just be an ebay and pistobheads job..

I'll still be an active member as I love the 9's and hope to have one again soon!

Yeah I know, me and the mrs are looking to buy a house and I need the sale of this to pay off what money I owe and add as much as I can towards a deposit.
No more luxuries :(

Cheers!

Yeah I would put it off but it's perfect timing really.
We have a 3 year old so need to settle into a decent house in the school catchment area in the next 2 years...

Yeah indeed, just would have made sense for her to arrange it before I got the 9 lol
How much do you reckon it'll sell for? I haven't seen many pre face models for sale under 5500

Cheers, really loving the car at the moment! It's now away as I'm off to nottingham tomorrow in the mrs diesel, I think the droning and adding the mileage would kill me!

Cracking on a bit with the car over the next few days if the weather holds out!
Replaced the backbox exhaust clamp which has stopped the small blow I had..
I also started cleaning up the engine bay until it started raining :(
Anyone reccomend a good cleaner for it apart from wd40...
