Not being cheeky, but aren't you supposed to put the tint on the inside of the lense? Or have you and it's just me being a blind spacktard?

I thought the same thing, but apparently not no. The instructions it came with and the people in Revolution said outside, not inside.

Car is now at the garage time scale on getting it back is a bit of an unknown given the list of parts im getting fitted and how much could go wrong etc. few days i'd say.

when i left it, it looked like this... with the lights refitted.

also sorted a new set of wheels... think these ones will really devide opinion, but this is what they look like right now, its NOT how they will stay... Razz

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

think a lot will depend on the colour i pick, tyres sizes and how i get the car sat. ive either made a brave choice, or a stupid mistake. time will tell. haha.

The rear lights look good I like them Smile

Don't know how you dare put three spokes on tho they died a very quick death in the 90s cos they are fooking minging.. What have you done with the wheels that were on the car they looked excellent.
Have to say you have gone from a wheel score of 9.5 to 0.1 there buddy

just cleans up the rear a bit. i like things looking understated.

the wheels, well... ha. i agree in a sense. im gunna make them work the way i always do. colour is key i think. white makes them look vile, but i really believe i can make them sit well on the car.

3 spokes are 90's, but the car is an 04, so, its unlikely that theyve been on one. factor in the fact i am having to get them custom drilled to 5x100 and ill be painting them in a custom colour will mean that i have something ''fresh'' as in, not done before. maybe for a reason, but mine will look different to the rest.

it did with the wheels it has now and it will with the wheels ive bought.

i could have bought xxr's or rota's and just chucked them on, but whats the point in that? Razz

the wheels that're on are sold, just mirror polishing the dishes for the new buyer. so im stuck with the decision ive made now. lol.

i couldnt keep it how it was after it being stolen. honestly made me feel sick looking at it. seeing it in pics has the same effect tbh. so i had no choice but to change the wheels.

im sticking with my gamble. Razz

I'd like the term, 'balls deep' now so so stick it through and do it ... If it fails and looks shite, they'll do for temp wheels until something else 'rolls' along.. Very Happy

Just spotted your pile of parts Steve, IMHO if those are EBC brake pads you may as well fit the cardboard boxes they came in. My experience has been they are moderate to poor on their best days and thats being polite. I flipped them for some Pagids and ever looked back.

It will certainly look different and unique with them wheels on, don't think you'll see another one about that's for sure, hope you pull it off and make the new look work.

I agree about the reds too they are crap pads.. Your better off just putting a load of grease on the calliper pistons and leaving the pads in the box..

Good luck with the wheels, and stopping, it would appear too. Laughing

I had EBC Yellows. They were already in the Brembos that I bought so (against better advice) I just had everything fitted and regretted my impulsiveness immediately. Since I couldnt afford a parachute or an anchor to chuck out the window, I spent about £40 on a set of Pagids and found that the middle pedal actually had an effect on my driving experience. Perhaps the Reds will be different but I wouldnt bet my insurance excess on them.

went across and had a look at the car today, made me sad Sad looking sorry for itself with standard wheels on. also added some powerflex bumpstops to the original coilover bumpstops to stop the arches coming down on the tyres when im cornering. meaning i can go a bit lower or atleast get it sitting how i want it. but for now it means the front end is sitting up too high (the rear ones are getting fitted next week)

took a few pics of it so we can all feel sorry for it Sad

Been looking at getting one of these for a good while now and finally found the ideal one, so went for it!

year - 2004
body type - wagon
engine - 2.0 turbo 240bhp
present mods - cat back exhaust, k&n, tinted window

came with a fresh oil service, 12 months tax and mot, full service history, 12 months mot, 2 brand new tyres to be fitted when the present 2 wear out, 12 month FULL all parts warrenty. just about everything i could want...

drove it for a week, wasnt happy with how it was running at all, so decided to get the oil out of it and put some proper stuff in, obviously, while i was doing that, a oil filter would be needed.

i also became sad that it didnt have a dump valve, so, that was on the cards and while doing that, it seemed to make sence to get a boost gauge as the dump valve was off anyway...

so, last night, i got cracking with my mate matty whos been to a few meets in his hawkeye impreza.

Got the short shifter fitted, wasn't a walk in the park, but with some washers and some swearing, it went on.

Really starting to feel the changes now, but can feel its gunna need a remap soon.

fitted my turbo timer and radio from the mazda as the standard one made me want to die. although i liked the OEM look, the fact i couldnt listed to mp3 was the worth thing to ever happen.

OH and the skip track was a knob on the left and the volume was a knob on the right... think about it... THATS WRONG?!

turbo timer i had fitted up next to the boost gauge, but whilst sat in the car, i had another idea, which to a small degree, i have implimented...

Went across and picked up the wheels today, they look good! Not badly curbed or anything. Gunna try and get them dropped off for redrilling tomorrow.

Also as money is tight, I'm spraying the fog covers myself.
