    I've not posted any pictures in this thread because I thought that you may have already seen it.

    Oh and there's the fact that some members think I'm a photo whore

    PS Thanks for the kind words

    Have you seen all of my pictures?

    The conversion is completed and I ran it on the road for a couple of months before taking back off the road due to electrical fault finding. The auto drop for the coupe windows and the interior lights are not functioning correctly.

    It does go like stink, gave an E46 M3 csl a good run for his money on the motorway and that's no BS. He must've seriously been wondering WTF had been done to mine

    I don't have the Air pump fitted which apparently strangles power slightly and I'm still yet to fit my Milltek decat section and Dave F induction kit

    They are the QX Series which used to be Maystar IIRC. They're not the best on the market but it sounds awesome and they look the part

    have a go at this yourself it isnt actually that hard, try and build a boot install first to give you an idea of what your up against with the doors and dash.
    with fibre glass there is usually a lot of filler involed aswell so even if it looks a complete pile of @$"^ it can be made to look perfect, my tourer is gettin the treatment later in life so if you havnt done it by then ill do a couple of quick howto's to get you going.

    i'm not saying the build quality is too good it's just not built for bigger front speakers lol.
    this will be a 100% compleate new dash no fiberglassing over dash then i'll be spraying it a nice green same with doors. also anyone know a website where i can get green carpeting for my boot? cheers.
    Dean
    speak to paul or raff at this place if they cant get it or make it then its not worth doing or having also have a look at their gallery while on the site there are pics of some of there fiberglass dash,s see if you like them,
