As I have now owned my Turbo for nearly a year I thought it was about time I introduced it to the forum. Very Happy

It is an 07 car with the proper gearbox! Wink And last month it went through the 50,000 mile barrier. Surprised

I am keeping the mods subtle and 'factory' look. So far I have fitted H&R lowering springs, spacers 9mm front and 15mm rear, Eibach uprated antiroll bars front and rear, an el cheapo SSK, led interior bulbs sidelights and side repeaters bulbs, Dectane rear lights, front mesh grill inserts and a BMC air filter. I've also upgraded the sat nav maps.

The car is well optioned and came with the front spoiler, side skirts and rear bumper lower lip colour coded from new and which I really like! thumbsup

Future plans will be a thicker steering wheel, body colour painted centre console, Kline exhaust and a remap.

Looking good! 50,000 miles, you need to get out more Smile Did you notice any betterment from the BMC Air Filter?
Definitely put an exhaust system on it and possibly change engine mounts to RSS or similar too Thumb

No difference noted with the BMC filter! And yes, I should add engine mounts to the list. Smile

It is my daily and I do around 4-5k a year so the mileage won't build too quickly.

Looks lovely. The fastest colour too, I am not biased at all.

I am tempted to lower the car too, does its scrape over humps etc?

Looks ace! But I would say that cos it looks a bit like mine. Well, quite a lot like mine actually.
Nice last line wrote there too. I think Felix at Kline was trying to sell a 997.1 turbo system off recently. Might be worth an enquiry if you're interested.

Very similar car to mine, Meteor, factory SSK, painted skirts/lip/valance etc.

I had a mild remap soon after I bought it 8 years ago and exhaust shortly after that.

Mine is staying standard height, my slightly inclined driveway and a few bumps around my area put paid to that.

I have -20mm H&R springs which lowered my car 25mm when measured at the wheel arch centres. It seems to sit lower than most though with 10cm clearance under the middle of the front spoiler. And yes it does scrape over some road humps and most car park ramps! But it is usually the bottom of the plastic inner wings that scrape first.
