Great cars, hasn’t been 1 on here in a while! Nice to see another.

Agree with the above, never been a fan of the colour coded bumpers personally.

I had one very similar years ago and loved it, such a good car and still looks great today. Revo was a great touch too it.

I think the best way to make the diffuser section black is to wrap it.

OEM was textured, so would look odd painted black.
If I remember from mine it is possible to replace that bit on the bumper with a new diffuser? Is that still the same. Mine was an older version

You have me looking at them again on AT, they haven’t went out of reach yet money wise too, but like everything else they will rise as there are fewer good ones left. Still one of the best hot hatches I’ve owned. A tuned edition 30 is a really good going thing .

Good choice, I bought a candy white Golf GTI last week as well! It was my old one that I always regretted selling, when the actual car I used to own came up on Gumtree, I had to buy it back. Unfortunately mine has had a few rough years since I had it, so there's a few rust spots I need to address.

Whats your plans with the Golf? Remap? Theres guys in Bangor that do the Revo remaps, I think I'll take mine there, once the cosmetic stuff is sorted.

Did I see this on gumtree a few evenings ago?
Looks good.

For reference of the breaking up the white, my own back bumper had the insert painted.. Not the best photo but you get the idea. Darker tails take away a bit from the brightness of the colour coding too I suppose, but a bit of tinting and very little effort would do that if you fancied.

Not very good photos, but very good cars! (The black 406 weapon in the background there is still better though 😃)

Well if you're open to suggestions then keep an eye out for a cheap set of Corsa vxr seats on eBay and get them retrimmed with the tartan. It's something I keep meaning to do even though I've nothing to put them in!
