Yeah, it's had a crack up the back since that photo, it's wearing xr4x4 alloys at the moment and it's minus the leather as well,  but i'm not fussed as i'll paint the bumper, needs the dent from under the light pulling out, but shouldn't take much, not having the leather trim gives me the excuse for recaros, and i have a set of 17" RS7's ready to go on anyway. It's lowered 40mm on konis, perhaps thats what i need on the 2000E

it most certainly did, it'll be parked up for a while before i put it on the road as theres a few niggly little bits that i want to do before i use it, and also need to save up to insure the bugger   but yeah, no probs nick, you'll see it in the flesh when you come down for the bonnet, as i'll have to move it as it's parked up against the GT

i hope so, got a little dent in the back to take out, have you practised on that bumper of yours with that filler yet? i'll inspect it and if it's any good, you can have a go on the dent   coz i ain't no good with filler. Need to remove the tow bar as i hate them, paint the bumper, replace the interior change the steering wheel, fit me cd player and me wheels and that'll be me, i'll be able to keep up with taps then
