    hello boys n girls i've had my mk1 since sept 05 and have loved every second of it. When i got her she looked like this my mk1 (mary) 2005_1002Image0081

    my mk1 (mary) 2005_1002Image0083

    Its has a 2.0 8v tsr engine in it. Over past year ive added
    koni 40mm lowering springs with koni adjustable dampers
    bbs Rms
    supersprint full system with a 4-2-1 manifold
    stripped rear of the car out.
    pipercross panel filter.
    single light grill
    smoked x-haired lights
    Got the car set up at bogg bros, its produced roughly 130bhp at the wheels and sounded amazing Laughing
    In the summer a group of us drove over to the ring. Got round in 9mins 40sec which i was well happy with, i have no doubt the car can go round alot faster but i cant lol.

    This is how my mk1 looked before i took it off the road

    Well she developed a smoking habbit after the ring trip so as soon as winter came round i took her off the road.
    We've had the engine out and re-built. Along with
    eibach anti-roll bars
    poly bushed the whole car
    fuel filler neck
    new fuel lines
    new rad
    samco hoses
    braided brake lines
    wilwood 4pots
    280mm discs
    EBC pads
    Sparco evo fixed seats
    Schmidt modern lines 8x15
    jamex lower strut brace
    cleaned and undersealed car

    Afew pics of some parts

    SHE LIVES!!!!!
    started her lastnite, to our surprise she started virtually straight away without any throttle and sat there idleing of her own accord. Not bad to say the last time the engine started was the 22nd of august.
    Was very giddy lastnite
