As some of you might know i had my corsa xe up for sale because i couldnt justify spending the money on it that i wanted to, After a few people messing me about last monday it sold leaving me with £1500 towards my new car which i decide was going to be a turbo, after looking through the net i decided on either an ibiza cupra or a mk4 astra read a few bad things about the cupras so decided i was staying vaux. Next decision Sri Turbo or Coupe Turbo.
Last Tuesday the decision was made when Me the missus And Donvaux set off up to birmingham to view a Titan Gold Coupe, when i saw it on autotrader it grabbed my attention straight away as most of the coupes in this colour are the 1.8 version. Arriving I decided i loved the colour and after a bit of haggling the deal was done and the car was to be picked up on the following saturday.
So saturday came and slightly hung over from friday me and don headed of up to birmingham again to get it.
Im really happy with it and have now sorted a few things which were used to drop the price, the main being the eml was on which turned out to be a bad earth on the map sensor causing the boost to cut.
Anyway i have a few things i would like to do to it over time which i will update as and when i get things done.
Just a few i have in mind at the moment are.
Get the paintwork right feels a bit rough and unpolished at the moment
Get the wheels refurbed
Phase one remap
Milltek exhaust system
35mm drop all round
Private plate next month
And probably a few other things
A few photos of the car when i got back saturday and a few little things ive done so far
