Pre Germany update Smile

Took the Golf to Peter Baldwin yesterday with Simon, after sorting idle mixture it was rolling roaded.. at a very pleasing 220bhp Very Happy . this is optimistic but still real power must be around 190-200, and im more than happy with that.

Then I got round to the thing thats been bugging me for ages, the BBS kit. It was totally faded and patchy and hanging on the car by a few sticky tabs and screws, now its fully bonded on with sealant. But whats better than that is ive completely repainted it, looks soooooooo good and im well pleased.

after unwrapping the Golf this was the result, colour match is very good I think.
