Hi Guys,

I'm half expecting to get majorly flamed for this as I know it's not going to be to everyones taste but here's some pics of my 2005 C4 VTR Coupe, loosely based on Liam Dorans 2010-2012 RallCross car.

The plan for the next couple of weeks/month is to fit a twin exit exhaust which I have in the garage but need to get a pipe for as it's a lot shorter than the standard box

All comments appreciated, Good / Bad or constructive

I agree Dominik, I've got a Shark Fin one to go on but haven't got around to taking the roof lining down and unbolting the standard one yet.

LOL

Not my cup of tea and think your front towing eye and loop might get you in trouble on the road...it sticks out quite a way!

It's not my style, but its nice to see people putting the effort in to things like these!

Has what's under the bonnet been upgraded to match the looks?

No need to touch the lining.

Just drop the rear interior light and you can get at the aerial fixing.......

I don't normally have it on whilst driving Rich, Was just for the photo's but I asked at the MOT station last week whilst having it done and he seemed to think it would only get me a "dangerous extrusion from front bumper" advisory, not that I'd want to chance it!

I do have a smaller loop on the way from China (so might take a while)...

Thanks for comments Bio, I enjoy styling, this is probably the most rash thing I've ever done tbh but I like it so I guess thats what counts, Nothing done under the bonnet apart from air filters at the moment but there maybe some tweeks on the way soon

I won't be doing this to mine anytime soon, but I love that you have! Makes a change from the WRC replicas too.

It's a job for a 22mm ring spanner. On my C4 hatchback the nut is near to the light cover and offset and so needs a little patience and some digital dexterity...
