Well I've owned the car for over one and a half year and not set up my own project thread.

I bought the car on Saturday 29th January 2011 from a Vauxhall dealer in Peterborough as the one original owner decided to trade it in for an Astra VXR :facepalm: (his loss).

The day I brought her home:






The day I bring her home the other half asks "so what are you going to do to this one then?" and I reply with "ah, nothing really it shouldn't need anything doing to it." :facepalm: Oops, how wrong I was...

List of modifcations to date:

Interior
- Parrot bluetooth kit
- Full sound deadening insulation
- Skunk2 gearknob
- Mugen short shifter ** Now added the Japspeed short shifting kit to the Mugen shifter
- BlackVue video camera (runs off ignition and records on a loop)
- Custom red footwell lighting front and rear (runs off interior light)

Exterior
- Tinted windows (rear 3)
- Rear amber indicator bulbs changed for chromed ones
- JP's LED sidelights, 6000k headlight bulbs, 25 LED reversing bulbs and LED number plate lights

- Driven Crazy Scoop'in

I think that's about covered it. Some plans for the future:

- Powder coat alloys gold/bronze/copper ??
- Mugen fenders
- Carbon fibre bonnet
- LSD ** 3rd gear synchro would need doing at the same time :rolleyes:
- Whiteline rear anti roll bar
- Stoptech BBK
- Balancer shaft delete kit

The poor car is used everyday travelling to work doing a 50 mile round trip 5 days a week :(. It's now on about 61,000 miles and I plan to keep it as a toy/weekend car in the future and get a diesel for running to work.

Some piccys over the years:























































More to come...... :cool:

Did the sound insulation made big difference?

Yes mate it does. Still need to get the roof and front floor done at some point :D


Great photos!! Looks even better in the flesh!
Cheers buddy :D


One word... Stunning! :-D Some nice alloys would set it off! ;-) (if you're going for the repaint route, I'd go for gunmetal... )
Cheers :D

I want to keep the alloys as OEM as possible but undecided on a colour :confused:

I think a set of Rages would really set the car off but I'm not sure if it will mess the ride or handling up :(
Maybe I can convince someone to lend me a set to see how I get on *nudges and winks at Spank My Car* ;)

Looks good mate! Ditch the sound dead stuff tho, too much weight!
I really doesn't make much difference, I bought the 'lightweight' Dynamat and the whole lot I put in the car came to about 5kg. I could do with losing 5kg so problem solved ;)

I also carry nothing in the car except for the following:

- 1 CD
- Standard Honda stuff i.e. jack, tyre weld, pump, locking wheel nut etc...
- Sunglasses
- Hi-viz vest

There is literally nothing else in the car that doesn't need to be (Spank My Car can back me up on that ;) )

Defo agree!

My car on the other hand has 15kg of sound proofing and a boot constantly filled with items from my life! Parsco, Tom and Lisa...and anyone who has seen me at a south mimms show can back me up on that :-D :-D

Maybe I'll make up for it and get a pair of Mugen Fenders. I believe they are made out of fiberglass instead of metal, that's got to be a 5kg weight saving ;)
Lol true but then the Wing is heavier than oem! Lol

Back seats out, race header, single exit exhaust, new bucket seats, new rims etc are the main ones ;)

Feel your pain on the 50 mile round trip to work, pain in the hole.





[QUOTE="DPG87, post: 1318264, member: 19362"] I'm a bit anal with the weight shedding on mines :p[/quote]

Don't get Dave started on his power to weight ratios.:p
