Hey everyone,

I suppose it's about time I stopped trolling through threads and post something.

I've had my ups & downs with the car in the past year I've had it.

Ran a few different sets of coilovers and spent forever sourcing a set of wheels.

Here's how it looks the now. Will look for older photos and hopefully post things along the way.



I'll be happy to answer most questions.

Cheers!

Hi Scott!

Your Up is amazing!!
I love the red. Have you upgraded your lights? I'm wanting to maybe change my day time lights....Hopefully I can. I own a Sunset orange Groove up with Fender and M&M

Thanks

It's a small world! Sorry for the late reply, I've been busy and completely forgot about this!

I stay in Mauchline, so definitely not far away!

I'll need to keep a look out, if you see me give me a flash

I had AP coilovers and they ran perfectly, but unfortunately due to bad installation the kit failed. The garage scored the piston and it burst the seal and caused me to loose all dampening so I ended up splashing out for a kit to get it as low as I needed/wanted!

If you're looking for a kit to go a bit lower but not looking to spend too much. The FK kit is very good value for money and pretty comfortable too. I know a few people who run it on their Up & Mii

Yeah, I've got Philips clear blue headlights and Silverlight indicator bulbs. Can find a link to them in the modified section of the forum!

Picked up a set of 17" OZ Superturismo's for daily driving instead of the Steelies.

Waiting for a day off to have it sitting lower. The front struts are still wound up max and the rear has the cups in, So should be able to have it on the lip or tucking no problem at all!

Suppose that's the benefit of shortened struts!

It's nearly been a year since my last update.

Here's how the car looks. Yes, it's still the same one!

What do you think?!











Thanks! :)

Thanks man!

I'm actually static. I'm running Stillstatic H&R 130mm

I still have about 15-20mm of travel to go lower all around.Edited by: Scottydubs
