Hi Gents,
Its been a while since I posted here but I wanted to share my new pride and joy!
1999 coupe 136kmh on the clock and 2 other owners :)
It's my 3rd coupe in the last three years this time a more unique sunroof delete with the two tone interior. I have a lot of work planned for it and its currently getting the rear floor fixed from the famous boot floor issue




Thought I'd share some past and present pics of my coupes over the years.
RIP




Cheers,

Gordon

Hey Chaps!

Its been a busy summer for me and the coupe finally got the car on Belgian plates after nearly 6 months of hassle and paperwork.
Car is now on coils and rides much smother and also looks a bit better :)

A couple of weeks ago I drove down to Spain via the Switzerland and then back up through some lovely French countryside :)

Recent work done so far:
full service
new vanos seals
new oem bushings
mirror adapter (greatly improved view for me as I'm pretty tall 6'4)
storm shifter and lighter plug
becker radio with navi
wiper delete
badge refresh
new headlight bulbs 3,5k very DTM look






next on the list is a some new lower seats to make it a bit more comfortable and a full respray :)


Got coils put on and took a summer trip down to Spain

Nice.

I am running 3200k HID bulbs (in projectors) - quite like the yellow look and it looks good against the black I think. Headlight takes a dip in performance though, but it's only noticable when you're on unlit roads where you can use main beam which means it's not a big issue.
