Due to a recent change in circumstances I've decided its time to part with my beloved Vivid Blue CTS
Those of you who have met me, should already know a lot of time and effort went into my car to make it look the way it did last week, but unfortunately over the last week its been stripped down to standard again ready to sell on to a new home.
Like all stories mine had a beginning,
The Day I picked her up.
After colour coding a new spoiler,
A K&N 57i, an engine dressing kit and some silicone radiator hoses.
and an ending,
Carbon wrapped bonnet, matt black wheels, door handles and fuel cap and questionably legal sunstrip :P
We had a good journey together and its been really fun modding, however all things must come to an end.
Like all good stories it wouldn't be right without a twist at the end, the reason I'm selling her is because I'm turning 25 and I can now afford to insure my new pride and joy which I picked up yesterday.
Meet my new Type R GT, already fitted my Heko's and the dealer let me keep my mint CTR wheels and he kept the scuffed Rages that came with the car
First thing after getting her home was an intensive Wash, polish, wax and detail, she had been neglected and abused by the previous owner
However after about 3 hours she was glowing
Didn't take anymore pictures after I had dressed the tyres and finished detailing as it was too dark.
She is a 2007 model full GT spec (no sat Nav or Bluetooth I plan to change the HU) and has covered just over 30,000 miles with one lady owner and imo was a steal at 8k. Apart from a few stone chips and a couple of marks a small worn patch on the gear gator she is in perfect condition.
Modification plans start in the new year,
Induction - HKS RSK
Exhaust - Martelius
Suspention - Unsure, but will include FRS
Brakes - Are worse than my CTS will need looking at
Not got any further than that, any advice or tips on where to go would be great.
What do you guys think?
