My HDI

Post by tomosllyr on Mon 02 Feb 2009, 08:09

I'm new to this forum so I thought I'd say hello by showing my car!

Went for a little road trip today and took these pics of my 306. Unfortunately I didn't clean her first, but oh well!

And apologies that I'm not actually in south Wales, but not too far off!

(I've also included a few older pictures that I like)































I quite like her as she is, but I want to make some small mods. I've already fitted blue led's in the dials, and I've bought a spoiler (the really small subtle one) which I hope to spray and fit this week.

Hope you like the pics...

I found out the other day while looking for a can of paint to do my new spoiler Very Happy that the colour is called versailles beige (which sounds horrid!!!). I actually saw another 306 this colour about two weeks ago, which is amazing since everyone keeps telling me they've never seen one this colour before!

sure I'll look for the calendar!

The beach is black rocks, near Porthmadog in North Wales. Lovely spot especially on a decent day!

Thanks! I'll post up some more pics when I've cleaned her and fitted the spoiler! Also thinking about a gti splitter, and I really would love some white cyclones...

Well unfortunately I've sold it now - gone to Uni and needed something a bit cheaper! But I did fit some custom sprayed cyclones and the gti-6 spoiler so I'll post some pics of them up.
Really miss the car, but needs must and all that!

I've got a little 1.2 16v Corsa B. Quite fun to drive actually, but trying to do a few subtle mods to make it a bit more interesting. It's fun on a student's budget!

These would really suit the corsa Smile

It's cause the pugs are galvanized. To be fair it's in really good contition, but I've already waxed underneath! There's a few rust spots on bonnet etc just developing, but once I finish exams and get home they're the first thing I'm going to sort out!

They are beautiful alloys! But I don't think I could afford them at the moment. Plus they're a bit far. I'm looking for some alloys for it (I have some on it noe but they're a bit dreary) but they'll probably be corsa or astra ones.
Other than that I'm only planning to spray the interior, fit some smoked repeaters, chrome interior door handles, and possibly a few other small details.
