3 years ago i brought my first D, SXI in red, unfortunately due to the economic climate i had to sell my van and ended up using my D as a van,
unfortunately the car has pretty much been trashed as much as i tried my hardest to look after it, with it coming up for its first MOT



Headlights dont shine on the road properly (actualy lights up the rooftops)

1 bald Rear tyre but as the last place who changed my tyres bent my locking wheel nut key and arent taking any responsibility ( what a suprise! lol) cost a fortune to get it off

Rear seats do not lock into position, need a complete new bench as the mechanism is shot!


i also did a stint of working in Leicester which worked about 45 miles one way from my house for 2 weeks with and i know this is going to sound really thick but no oil......:frown::hmmm:

video of her trying to run





so the engine is ruined aswell

so with its MOT in a weeks time i have been and ordered my Chili LE as now i dont have to use a car for work i can keep it in mint condition keeping low milage as my 10 plate already has 64k on the clock!

worn and torn :(




already started my progress as my garage door was broke for 12 months the highest it would open was 1ft (12inches) off the ground so for 12 months it was a case of chuck anything we can get under the door in, now it is fixed i am determined to keep my chili mint the landlord (after threatening to take her to court) fixed the door and i had to clear the garage to get my new car in


my main first plans for this car are

calipers painted
de badge
vxr sorrounds
heko deflectors
HID conversion ( already sorted with rizla)
LED plate lights


then over the next 12 months

boot build (always wanted a sub but as ive always had to carry tools never had room)
smd conversion
footwell lights

and i saw on a thread about taking the rear bench out the lights inside the rear cupholders i think that looks awesome!

will post some pics of my new car when i pick it up in the morning :D

lol a few times i did think of torching the car i felt it was the best way to put the car out of her misery about like a half run over animal lol

and yes the garage was a tearful experience, but we couldnt get in or out to sort anything out without rolling under it whilst one held the door otherwise you wouldnt get out



as it stands 20 mins ago all ready for my chili tomorrow
