    London is full of speedbumps, so the only option to go lower is air. Problem is that air on this chassis requires a totally custom build (I have neither the money nor the patience).

    For now I'm just keeping it clean and healthy, will be making it sound better both inside and out- hidden ICE and full stainless exhaust.

    I don't want to touch the interior

    London isn't that bad. Lot of guys on here from there.

    Bags are pretty available now for most.

    Sunday means dirty fingernails and clean cars







    Time for a Nardi wheel, a refurb and a stainless straight-through

    Default Plate change

    So after owning the car for almost a year, I finally put my plate on.

    Oh, I don't know whether this is a badge of honour/entry ticket/SOP but I ripped off my exhaust this week on a pothole.

    I know it doesn't look that low, but there's max 1" clearance underneath

    German plates are because the car is a huge German panzer wagen and I think they finish the car off nicely, plus it's my name

    Yeah, they look really cool. I just didnt know you can use plates with the D in the European Union flag and those state and TUV thingies, being in the UK.

    New wheels. Gone from 16x9 to a staggered 17x7.5 and 17x8.

    The old ones were rubbing themselves bald on the inside edges and there was fouling to the tie rods. These slightly larger, narrower wheels have a lot more space... Although less poke
