    Ok,
    Can’t take it any longer,
    my guess is,
    You’re having in car adjustable suspension kit fitted?

    Sort of got that already with the 3 Modes that come with the car, not much longer to wait hopefully less that two weeks and it will be back on the road ready for the track.

    Got another recommendation http://www.corneringforce.com/ these guys can do lots of very interesting stuff to car's setup.

    I think your putting a speed blue MK2 Cupra R shell on instead of the mk3... It's the next logical step haha

    Cant [put the MK2 Shell on it because the MK3 Is shorter than the Mk2

    When I turn her into a full time track car then yes polly bush and adjustable cambers may come out to play but for now its a daily with adaptions to make it more fun on the track.
    Interestingly I was advised by both my garage (who tracked MK5 & 6 Golfs) and the Suspension guys not to change the front or rear ARB's the stock ones are fine for the track.

    Full BTCC style body kit with real aero was my next guess ?
    Then saw pics of the mk2.
    What I’d do.
    Think you should go for it.

    Have to say one thing I really don’t like about the Mk2, is the pre facelift mirrors. Remind me of toy cars. Facelift mk2 wing mirrors look so much better.

    I did call the firbreglass people who made the panels to see if they could do one for the MK3, At that stage they said they did not have any panels so could not but hopefully going forward they will start to make this stuff.

    I am currently looking at this

    But that is the next phase (bodywork).

    JE Design make some wide arch kits, but they're not cheap.

    Nothing is cheap in car modding, just don't like the wide arch kit's
