    Thought the rear looked abit bare so ordered the cup spoiler and had it sprayed gloss black to Match other gloss back touches

    Gloss black Badges and wind deflectors came at some point!

    Also SMD interior lights cool white still have sidelights to fit.

    Thanks mate, yeah I'm after a set of alloys just don't have a set in mind yet, and as for suspension might just settle for some springs

    Nice mods so far and some great photos! When you say pedal box, do you mean the Sprint Booster??

    Thanks mate. Same as the sprint booster but from DTUK unsure wether it will fit the 200 or wether it's just for the 197 but will soon find out if not I will sell it on!

    Atkin's progress thread!

    ordered some Ktec 19mm spacers and bolts, will hopefully get round to fitting soon!

    Some latest pictures got my old plate which had on retention back on.

    Also some juicy goodies

    Go down the coilover route! I bought springs thinking I'll be satisfied but I've gotten to the stage where I just want more lows.. :worried:

    Very nice! Coilovers are the way forward! But if you want it stiffer then surely some updated mounts and strut braces would be on the to do list also?
