Ok,here is my weekend plan:
- installing my K-Sport big brake kit
- 17" Volvo Arcadias
- Forge blanking plate
I already have a Bailey blow off valve fitted,but I have not fitted the blanking plate yet.This job looks like a bit PITA as the oem dump valve is hidden so well.I hope the sound is gonna be a bit more agressive as it's so "girly" right now.
-MBC( boost gauge already fitted)

I will post some pics when i got everything fitted.

Then a tried to get the electric aerial all the way down but ended up pulling the insides of it out - don't ask me how. Now where's the thread on how to replace the aerial ......

Found a big crack in my grill.

Took it off and super glued it. Looks good as new now and saved myself 70
