    Brick through the window instead then

    Yup, I would definitely get it lowered and some bigger wheels on there if you can afford it.

    Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
    Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean

    I'd lower and stiffen it but wouldnt bother with anything external, I'm guessing its a VTR so u want to change the manifold and exhaust system as well to get it breathin a bit easier as well cos the VTR is restricted to hell and halfway back....

    real nice mate, like Saxo VTRs myself - u're a lucky git... but i guess PC World tech support is paying alright eh?

    Get it lowered 35 - 40mm and get some 15" multi spokes on there and it'll look lush - don't go and spoil it with bad boy body kits and crap like that will u

    Save the pennies and get a good quality suspension kit for it...and careful on the wheels, i've heard that Saxos don't like big wheels, it upsets the handling...

    Gonna keep the outside standard, dont like body kits full stop.... quite partial to the standard wheels myself too :o

    Green forced induction kit and magnex backbox coming next week :P (not to sure if I should get full stainless system with new manifold, might be abit too loud then... only want a nice note when I boot it :) )

    Finally got the front fogs working as well, not that I will be needing them... not enough fog around to use em ;)

    Heres some "proper" pics craig ;)



    Wonky zorst o_O




    And the beast it has replaced, which incidently decided to be a cnut this morning and split a fuel hose on the way to the MOT centre :|

    very nice... but get rid of the bloody telephone on the direct line tax disk holder.... just unpeel it, snip off the phone bit on the top and it looks about 5x better

    If i remember correctly, i think Magnex are one of the 'quieter' manufacturers of exhauts...you'll get a nice sound but it won't be loud...and one of their manifolds should work very nicely too...
