Looks awesome... I think black chevrons would look really good!

Thanks everyone! Yeah I have thought about the black chevrons. Might do it soon. Bad news with the manifold... The person I bought it off managed to damage it removing it from his car so I has a full refund. Oh well. Cat back soon!

I was staying in Haverfordwest last weekend for a wedding and saw your car! Thought you might be on here. Looks sweet but a shame your selling!

Well, I'm back!

Owned a 'slightly modified' A4 Avant for the past few years, but sold it due to the mileage getting pretty high. Wanted something a bit more fun this time, so I went and picked up a VTS 180 from Bedfordshire on the weekend. Here she is...



When I got it home, I gave it a pre-wash using Auto Finesse Avalanche and a PA Foam Lance, washed using the two bucket method, cleaned the door shuts using Auto Finesse Citrus Power, used Autoglym Engine and Machine Degreaser/Cleaner for the engine bay, polished the paintwork by hand using Auto Finesse Tripple, then dressed all plastics/trims using Auto Finesse Revive and Dressle. Here are the results...





I then re-painted the black bits on my wheel centres and changed my sidelight bulbs to LED.





At some point I'll be doing a full paint correction detail, and fitting my coilovers (that arrived as I was wrong this!), so I'll keep this updated with anything I'm doing.

Cheers for looking!

Very nice! The LEDs really do complement the xenon lights!

Looks great, loved my Iron Grey VTS! (Also love my current obsidian Black VTS as well!) AF Tripple is so versatile, I also use it on my bike with great results.

Couple more updates!

De-badged rear


Short aerial

K&N Typhoon induction kit


Fitted the rear coilovers today, and fitting the fronts tomorrow, so will post so pics when it's all sorted.

Also, I managed to break the headlight sensor on the rear axle (forgot to disconnect it. Stupid, I know!), anybody got any advice on how to sort it. Is it better to buy one and fit it, or just bring it to Citroen with a pile of cash?

Thanks!

Coilovers are on! They will be getting wound down when I decide on wheels.
