So had a lowering stick session this weekend in Tango garage... (camper had to move out for the day/night What a Face )
Rear end was done first as easier Wink



Front took a while longer than planned as had to drill out the nearside top bolt from the front suspension as was seized..

Have some more pics to follow..

but massive thanks to Wizpop and Chipper for lending a hand..


Will get a better pic once settled and cleaned...
not too low as got to get around in it daily.. and most places have stupid holes in the road or speed bumps that are designed to rip off the sump..

My old newbie was/is sold to someone in South Wales who took the twists off.

Would be funny if they're my old wheels!

I would have the mental if someone had blocked my drive.
It is an offence to do so in fact.
I'd have been on to the Feds to come and sort it otherwise it would have been out with the trolley jacks and I'd have moved it to the middle of the road.

Yep, I sold it to a guy called Adam, who sold it to her a year or so later.

Been following her posts - she simply can't leave the car alone can she!

Quick question, what turbo has this got and what boost pressure does it run?

It has a k03 turbo. 150bhp standard. 0-60 7.2sec (was in the wet and stock all round)
Running at the mo as standard 10psi boost with a 12 psi peak.

You can upgrade to a K04 turbo

Passed Mot today Wink

Had a quick check of fluid levels, bulbs etc and swapped led sidelights out just in case.


Front suspension has settled now so time to level out the car soon.

Mot report lol! you ain't dubbin' if it isn't rubbin' Smile

Everything as expected! 1mm clearance between adjusters on coilovers and wheel.. Wink
Drive shafts on arb is damn KFC carparks stupid mountain speed humps fault!
Just a slight leak somewhere on the coolent.. Prob a hose clip needs tightening from when I installed the water temp sender.
And surely it's safer to have a child seat that is attached to the seat belt!

And I think they noticed its a little bit lower than stock...


Was informed that it is 'too low' at the front, ....
My answer,

It's not down all the way yet on the coil overs Wink

Let me know how much and I may take them.. Will need to space out all round I guess, although only the front is the issue. I can't go any lower as adjusters on the coilovers will rub.
