Shes pretty much a standard iggy with a few subtle choice mods

After 4 months in a warehouse with me being off driving with a shattered leg and shattered ankle- shes in dire need of a good dust off and a clean. Been back driving for a month now and have "fallen in love" with the iggy all over again! 4 months away from driving was as sickeningly horrible as i could imagine a driving ban would be!!!

Brief list of mods;

OMP Strut Brace
K&N induction kit
32MM rear wheel spacers
tinted windows (for a bit of privacy)
Full custom exhaust- from MIJ performance
new grille
few audio bits- SPL dynamics door builds, upgraded headunit, new shark components small sub( bass tube) etc

Foliatec caliper paint kit- i just need a free weekend to be bothered to do it lol

Currently saved up about half of what i need for my new year plans- shes going white with some black shoes


comments appreciated, thanks guys

Dave

Does look good.. are the spacers on the rear purely to space the wheels out further for aesthetics or was there another reason?

I can't tell 100% if it is much different from your photos.

Do you have photo's of your strut brace fitted? keen to see it.

Welcome to the site.

Its brilliant to be behind the wheel again. i live with my girlfriend (who is still learning to drive) in a small village with not much public transport so it was like my freedom was lost. Great to be back in the iggy though!!! Absolutely love it!!!!!

Cheers, i chose the spacers for 50% aesthetic, and 50% performance. On the wet roads over here the back end of the car can be a little twitchy, so i thought with a wider stance and some slighty chunkier tyres over standard, it would give the car a little more grip. Everyone who has seen them said they look really good. Definately an overall imporvement from standard considering both looks and performance. They arent the most expensive set approx £35 GBP.

A few members from sisoc have had front spacers fitted- but removed them straight away as it messed with the steering at higher speeds. If anyone was thinking of front wheel spacers, i think it is advised to go no more than 5-8mm on a hubcentric spacer set (i could be wrong though)

Thanks for the comments

I have fitted 32mm spacers on the rear only- there is no rubbing or any other issues with them. And i havent altered the guards in any way shape or form

Ive got my eye on a set of 5mm H&R spacers for the front but they are quite expensive in the UK so i am keeping my eyes open for a cheaper set :D

This thread is quite old and my iggy has had a few changes since, if i get a few minutes i'll post them up

Cheers for comments folks

Dave
