Car(s): 2003 Saxo VTR
Default Carls VTR

Picked her up on the 13th for £225 with a smashed back window and a flat tyre,
got her in for inspect at my buddys garage on the 14th who repaired the tyre for me for free and found that the drivers side lower arm rear bush is giving alot of play in the steering.
far as i know its lowered on the front with springs and adjustable shocks with after market shocks on the rear,
it has bluetooth an towbar fitted, also has a horrible after market filter thats just sucking in hot air from the engine bay.
Heres how she looked when picked up




Front lowering springs - Apex 35mm
Front and Rear Shocks - Koni S.T.R.T Kit (nothing special)
K&N - Panel Filter
Reconditioned polybushed rear axle lowered 30mm - imaxles
Raceland 4-2-1 manifold
Full Sportex decat - silenced centre - 3inch tail pipe
JBL speakers all round comps speakers up front powered by a JBL 400watt amp
Single sub in the boot not JBL yet wanting to replace with a JBL
Original Saxo car matts out a 1998 VTR with saxo written down them (probably from factory)

Looks like a good project you've got there, fairly cheap too!
Mind me asking how much it cost for a replacement boot and or respray? Mines fucked from the previous owner lmao

Thanks moving things over from the old car slowly
The boot was free it came off my 1.4 Exclusive because of its front end damage, maybe worth check on ebay and seeing if anyones breaking a saxo nearby aim for the same colour
as when i got the KIA resprayed it was £100 a panel

Had its first mot today with me as the new owner, it failed but im pretty happy with the list.

1. amplifier wire was unadequately supported ( its now been tied out the way)

2. offside rear brake binding (the dust cover has come off, picking up a new caliper from down my local yard for £20)

3. centre steering rack gaiter split (not sure how much a new one is yet probably less than £10, not sure how to fit it yet)

4. offside front suspension arm ball joint nut is ineffective ( Its not the correct nut by they are getting me one for free)

5. High level stop lamp less than 50% viable ( It spells out SAXO but i have a spare i can put in for the retest)

6. Finally it failed on emission (its cated with no element inside, but have a MK1 cat and 4-2-1 mani to go on)

I'm pretty happy with that, it had two new kumho tyres on the front size 195/50/R15 thanks for advise wullvfr and is still running 195/55/R15 on the rear all 4 wheels were balanced too

Started the MOT work yesterday, off with the old exhaust, and on with a mk1 under floor cat for the MOT, and also while in here a MK1 oil conversion which i got the part in from France to do. Also removed the air box so i could find the split rubber, its in worse condition that described on the MOT lol

You might want to whip the ECU tray and fuse box out and check for any holes in your wings, looks to me like you might have some.

How did you guess?? Ooh i like the angle of the blocks... Please put a durometer on them please, thatll send me over the edge...


It was only to see if the tread pattern was different to the ones i had on my road car (different sizes have different tread patterns) as i was very impressed with the ones i was using, for £40 a corner might as well try a pair

Update
front comp's turned up managed to get them for £24
GTO 506C 165watts peak 55watts RMS


Crossovers are in, i have used a old RCA cable with the ends cut of until my speaker cable turns up just to give a idea of how its going to hock up

cabling going up through the grommet to the door, then probably going to drill a whole into the door its self


heres one of the OEM


My second hand JBL GTO 2000 amp turned up to power my new comps, came with all original box and paper work for £25 bargain! biggest amplifier i have come across



quick update to the body work
heres under the ECU its not that bad no holes


BAD news
Split around the rear axle access panel

Split and hole between the boot and wheel arch


I have had it all wield up now but cba to empty the boot to take a picture will upload one in a few days once the speaker cable has turned up
