      Nothing much has happened of late.

      Rough times at work have slowed my modding plans

      Nothing too mad. Just the usual exhaust and induction with a remap.
      Don't think the outside will change now.

  2. I have jealousy pains right now. Can't wait to see more pictures of this. I was saving like mad for one but impatience got the better of me and I've ended up in a DC5 (still a good compromise).

      My DC5 was the love of my car life. It's still a fantastic choice for a car.
      I'm getting excited now as I've had a letter to confirm that the boat docks on the 8th. A couple of weeks to get her ready and I'll be one happy chappy.

      Pics will of course follow

    Is that standard ride height, looks like its riding about 15-20mm lower?

      I'm not sure?
      The previous owner has swapped the 18" wheels for 17" WedsSports.
      Not sure what else has been done till it gets here.

  4. All the changes can go in the Project Log tab. The main photographs and mods lists etc are via the edit function on this entry.

  6. 12 days to get it registered with DVLA is not bad at all, so what's the process for getting the car registered for use on Uk soil ?

      My importer Andy will service the car. Then underseal it and do any bits and bobs that I've asked for or needs doing, like window tints, etc. He will need to add a rear fog light and send all the paperwork to register the car for the UK.
      Then once the car is ready to go, he has to take it to Carlisle for the SVA test.

      It used to be a swift process when the DVLA offices were local but now everything has to go to Swansea. So it could be longer. I hope not. I want the car for my birthday (21st)
