My New Hdi 1999 reg

Post by welsh_ben on Sat 06 Dec 2008, 13:15

  • 114k on the clock
    99%service history
    4 brand new tyres(toyo proixe)
    cambelt and pump done at 97k
    5months tax
    11months MOT
    just had a full service
    mint interior
    jammex lowering springs included (40mm)
    remapped to approx 120 by Shire tuning in FCS 2008
    angel eyes

only bad point is it has a slight dent on the bonet jsut above the badge from where a trolley was rolled into it but it hardly anything at all. Went to veiw car today with alexj37,took us 5hours to get there due to traffic and 4hours back.(250miles each way) took it for a short test drive and real pleased with it,power flows more smoothly then a normal dt, but i dont think its aroud the 120bhp mark so a rolling road wil be used in jan, all the power does come in tho but at the top end of the scale so i may have to get it remapped. buyer wanted 2k for it,i offered 1700 and he accepted,dropped a deposit off today and going to pay rest of next friday and pick it up then so i may be at the xmas meet after all,here as some pictures.

Plans:

lower 40mm all round
gti conversion brake all round
full exhaust system
remap (depending on rolling road result)
black mask fog light(already sprayed a spare set jsut need to test them)

removed the arch liner for temp so i can cut the right amount off cause it rubs with part of arch liner, so cutting that back, nothing rubs/touches when going over a bump or anything
