    It would seem I have caught the Modding bug. I've never really felt the urge to Modify cars but I really want to make my zed "mine" if you know what I mean. Here are some before and after pics.

    Before:

    Then I fitted this lot,

    Interior:
    JVC multi media head unit
    Inphase compact sub
    Alpine speakers

    Exterior:
    Silver side grills

    Performance:
    Eibach pro 30mm lowering springs
    Redstuff pads
    Grooved and drilled discs
    RBF600 brake fluid

    After:

    Humble beginnings but who knows where it might lead (a massive void in my finances most likely).

    Cheers Bill, Mozza. Actually, you 2 are partially responsible for the recent dent to my wallet. I was perfectly happy with my car until I turned up at the November run. It's a shame I can't make the Elan Valley cruise, it would have been a great chance to see how the car holds up to a bit of driving in anger.

    I might take it round the Evo, I feel like I have a score to settle 8-x

    Just found the Whitby thread, it sounds good but I haven't got 8 hours to spare tomorrow I'm afraid. If I go for a blast around the Evo I could be there and back before lunch.

    It's nice at Whitby, you'll all have a really nice day. 400 miles for Whitby fish and chips? Well worth it :-bd
