Ooh very nice mate! Love the roof rack thing. That's what I'm after on my Fabia. That night time shot with the neon thing looks sweet! Would love stuff like that of mine! Any other plans then?

where do i begin..

as you can see up at the top i started in a VW polo 6n2 that was an amazing car. however it came to a sticky end when I stupidly decided to go on a drive in that huge snow fall we had a couple of years back and as it was sliding down a bank I realised that there was a slight cliff lined with trees and a river at the bottom at the end of the bank, so I turned into the banked grass verge beside me and well the pic says the rest lol What a Face

Anyway i got an identical one to see me through and what a problem child it was No

but after a year of searching i found a really clean MK3 polo coupe genesis Very Happy

Here are the pics of when I got it home
