2. Spacers. I saw one last yea with a set fitted which looked nice....no idea where to get them from?

3. Coilovers...not somethig=ng for this year but what do people reccommed?

4. Rear No plate light...i want to upgrade to a white LED one but wondered if anyone had any suggestions?

Think thats all for the minute. Will post som pics uo next week!

2 loads on ebay... 12mm rear is perfect for OEM wheels but you will need longer bolts and 3mm on the fronts.
the badness makes me do it...!

If you're upgrading the headlight bulbs, be really careful of the Wattage. Higher Wattage bulbs (over 55W I think) run much hotter and could melt the angel rings.
This happened to me, but the bloke who sold me the bulbs was the same guy who fitted the angels, so he ended up fitting a replacement set of rings at his own cost!

A drummer can drum - a drummachine can merely wish he could (me)

Yeah i miss the VX for its driving ability and performance but patience can wear thin on them sometimes!
