    Default Sport red VTS 2008 progress thread

    So here's my red 2008 vts. Currently got 54k on the clocks (quite high for year but I'm only responsible for 2 of them)
    I've got a lot of mods lined up I just need a blank cheque!

    What's been done
    Debadged the rear and sides.

    Still waiting on finding the right body shop to fill the holes the badges left behind. So far I've been quoted 80 / 140 and
    200! So I'm still considering who to go with I don't want to take the cheap option and end up with a rubbish job

    Dewipered the rear and added a few stickers.

    Still waiting on C2 club stickers to arrive!

    Added a sticker to the front bumper but I'm not sure whether it's staying so opinions would be appreciated


    Brought these dust caps off eBay for a couple of quid, thought they were quite cool


    What's next
    Peco exhaust system
    BMC CDA carbon fibre air filter
    Will be getting these sorted over the next few months.
    watch this space

    oh yeah? Ahh well easy to sort I guess. If amazon don't get stock soon I've found it on a German website which will cost about 24 including
    shipping

    Well I was considering removing the stock mud flaps. A high curb has kind of made that decision for me by rudely snapping off the drivers
    side thankfully no damage to the rear bumper

    Ok so the other mud flap had to come off today gonna be on the look out for some replacements or I
    might just keep it without.
    I can't believe how much dirt was inside the passenger side mud flap?! I'm gonna gain bhp now I've
    removed that weight

    I got a tow sticker through the post but will probably wait until I buy a tow strap before adding that.
    here's what she's looking like without her flaps

    Another day off work and another day with no club stickers
