After spending years and countless thousands of pounds on cars that aren’t really worth anything I’ve decided to do it all over again and royally fuck myself some more.

Ladies and not so gentlemen I give you the trilogy of arse gaping financial ruining.

GP intercooler

Looks like a lovely base mate, nice mileage and spec is pretty spectacular too (y)

Be interesting to see how it fairs compared to the grey one when you start pulling it apart hey?!

Haha the guy who I’m buying it off let me take the rear lights and all the boot plastics out to check it over. Also jacked the car up and had a good old look underneath and it was pretty damn clean.

Yeah to find one with that low miles nowadays is really tough. Thought mine was pretty good at 80k :ROFLMAO: (y)
Yeh pretty happy with it and got it for a good price considering a it’s a JCW.

Got a couple of hours on this tonight. Cleaned the battery box out and swapped the battery module out. Cleaned the cables up and chucked a new battery in.
