Absolutely fantastic - well done.

It's a very popular colour... :wink:

Some of those modifications have been done before but not all on one car, it looks excellent.

Did you retrofit the headlight washers too, I see the jets on the bumper....

The boot lighting looks good - there is a perfect space for lights on n the tailgate ( I had a friend that fitted a shower in his - for washing off his wetsuit after surfing.. )

Keep up the good work :cheesy:

No kidding... :D

Thanks a lot :) My bumper was originally damaged, I bought a second one with headlight washers before painting and I replace the tank/washer reservoir. I'm going to modify my headlights and install lenses, but i don't know when... :)

Amazing amount of work, imagination and excellent results, well done. 8)

You could do with a bit more power to go with those brakes and other modifications.
I might know someone with a suitable ecu file :wink:

Thanks for kind words :wink:

I'm going to change original programin ECU but first I have to install more efficient intercooler (from SAAB 9-3 2.0 t - I have even bought it already) and modify injectors. Before that, I have to check the efficiency of the turbocharger and install 6-speed gearbox from Peugeot 508 :cheesy:

That is my plan 8)
