    Probably the cupra front bumper tbh. And then get my front bumper, rear bumper and spoiler painted and the car colour coded. Wheel refurb after that I'd say. That's a lot of money though :(

    Not much to report unfortunately. Have been busy doing my final teaching practise and was in Edinburgh the last few days to celebrate so bank account took a considerable blow.

    Ticked over 80:

    Cupra bushes or standard mate?

    Like the look of the aero arms and blades. Are they a genuine seat job or where did you get them. Need to invest in a new set of blades and the aero look the job :)

    Will be going for cupra or powerflex ones, need to look into it a bit more.

    Yeah genuine parts, got them on ebay but I'd been keeping an eye out for a few months.

    Progress has been slow lately. Over the past few weeks, car has been getting cleaned inside and out. It was tax and insurance time at the start of July. The car had a broken spring so got that fixed and changed the oil and oil filter at the same time. Got the headlights aligned. Also changed my H3 high beam bulbs to standard ones as I didn't like the blue glow that the ice white ones gave off.

    Before:

    After:

    Changed the rear license plate bulb holder as the plastic cover fell off, leaving the bulb exposed. My fag lighter got stuck in the holder and had to pick it out with a knife. So I've bought a plastic plug for it and going to bin the lighter because I never use it.

    Only other thing to report is that the car has started making a noise, like a humming. It goes away when the clutch is in so keeping an eye on that.

    Lastly, I'm now officially a teacher so hopefully some decent money will start coming in :D

    Thanks mate. Yeah there are very few of us left from when I joined the site. Next big mod is to buy a cupra front bumper and get it sprayed along with my rear bumper and colour code. Then I'll be getting my cupra wheels powdercoated.

    Good to see that you're keeping with the mk4s aswell.
