    Here is my LCR, Got it in back in October and has the Recaro interior. It already had the Fabia rear wiper fitted. I didn't waste to much time in changing it a little.

    Here it is as soon as i got it home and gave it a quick wash

    Then put my number on it and got a shorter plate for it

    After that it was time to refurb the Brembo which were peeling quite badly

    Here it is after a wash and polish

    Soon after I ordered sum new springs to lower it by about 30mm making it sit much nicer :D

    Then got it tinted and a sunstrip put on, here it is lowered and tinted

    After looking about on these forms I ordered a Jetex cone filter at the end of November after all the good words said on it, the noise from it is good and a nice whoosh from the DV too :D

    Just fitted my new THS dog bone mount last week, this vastly improved wheel hop which used to do my head in :doh:

    Hi Alex,

    Car looks fantastic! I'm just wondering what make springs are on it? They look spot on :D

    Cheers,

    Nick

    they are Pi springs, i got the -45mm kit on it but it sat too low at the rear, so got two rear -30mm springs so it now sits perfect :D

    Nice looking car mate. What shade of tint did you go for? Trying to figure out how dark to do mine! Cheers!

    Thanks :D
    I got 'dark' on the back and 'medium' on the front, the guy we get to do them works with light, medium, dark and very dark, not sure how much percentage it equates too but I had to take the fronts off after the traffics disagreed with them :( they said they only let through 22% light (should be 70% im sure). from memory the standard tint on these cars are 27% I think so anything on the front makes them illegal

    Was it high temp etc? or just normaly clearcoat?

    I've got the wet and dry paper, lacquer, just need some new brembo decals. Will be following your thread :D

    Nope not high temp, just there normal clearcoat. I don't really drive it that hard though so they have never been subject to any extreme heat but they have survived the rather harsh winter so happy with it :D

    Update on the car, not done much to the car since I started the thread except a fresh set of the 'R' badges which were getting pretty badly corroded and just today got a set of the Sparco aero wipers :)

    Edit; Today was first time I have had it out in rain since putting on the Sparco wipers, not impressed at all with them. Both wipers missed part of the window on the way back down and were noisy so have put on the original Bosch wipers now.
