    I now have number 8 having picked it up early May. Looks like it has come down from Scotland and I picked it up from Penrith, Cumbria and now it's in Leeds!

    It was completely standard, 2 owners and 42k miles.

    The cars running standard ff suspension as far as I can see so I'm looking at refreshing it now as it's likely 8 years old.. it's registered Nov '10 and with the new RS style badges so I presumed that it had the new style top mounts.. but I've checked and they look like the old style from pics I've seen.. is this right? 7d5a799f338a2d20353c62768f30b842.jpg

    I was considering keeping it standard.. but I'm going to be modifying it as I go along yes!

    So far I've fitted a panel filter (Ramair) and I've just today remapped it with an RS Tuner and the Fastchips map! I know it's not going to give much in the way of power but should hopefully rid it of the god awful kangarooing from cold and make it run better.

    Now I wasn't sure about the marmite wheels.. I was going to get them powder coated gloss black but I've decided on some new lighter wheels now which are on order. The tyres are rubbish 'Orium' from Arnold Clark (made by Michelin) but they were brand new so reluctant to change them so just debating that at the minute!

    Exhaust will probably wait until this standard one goes bad.. but I'm not sure how long they last on these?

    Seems strange given the age! But must have been in the crossover period

    Don’t forget it could have been late registered and built 4 months previous, but yes it’s defo in the crossover anyway...
