Cheers guys...just a few small updates
I was getting a bit fed up of all the turbo noises (my inner chav has matured :p) So ordered a pipercross panel filter and refitted the standard airbox
Image

The rear speakers had failed (no bass just noise) So bought some Vibe black air 6x9s for the rear and same but 6.5" for the front door speakers.
Image

Refitted the double Y's as they look better

Love that mate, just slow down a bit, or I'll have to change my colour choice!, Been trying to save to mine painted or wrapped in satin black since I got it, the fronts lights have been done so have the rear windows (properly) and I've got new black wheels going on this weekend. Just need the respray now and I should be right where I want it.
I'm not a fan of polishing cars but yours looks awesome especially the studio shots.
You should be very proud :envy: :envy:

Cheers mate, I used to spend far too much time cleaning/polishing cars (even my old £100 diesel pug 306) and probably spend a bit much on cleaning stuff (poorboys stuff is excellent)

I like satin black cars as well....you can maybe tell

:lol:

Resprays hurt the wallet though :(...I'm in 2 minds about taking the 9-3 off the road for winter and having the bumpers done again and have the doors/rear quarters/bootlid redone as there are a few bits bothering me...nice excuse at the same time to be doing the timing chains, headgasket, belt/tensioners, viggen clutch ect as well...just means I have to put up with 125bhp all winter :(

Too much black, liked it better with the silver Y spokes and normal headlights looked great in earlier pictures. Step too far in my opinion. Clear/smoked side repeaters too. I hate black wheels on black cars too!
