Year: 1994
Wheels: Dotz Brands Hatch Dark 7x16, ET40
Suspension: GAB coilovers

Other adjustments: too much to write down ;)

I have the car since 2006, but maybe planning to sell it. Lack of time and I've bought a house.
Short list of adjustments:
cleaned bonnet
cleaned front bumper
GTI front spoiler
single wiper
GTI sideskirts
cleaned trunk
GTI rear lip
Buddyclub Type R wing

Bride seats
everything behind the seats removed
Raid HP wheel
no radio etc

GAB coilovers
GTI front strut bar
Whiteline 24mm rear sway bar
Ultraracing room bar
Ultraracing rear strut bar
Ultraracing c-pillar bar

Custom exhaust, complete out of sight.

Why I registered here? Because of the love of cars with a nice stance :) Maybe the love and time will come back so I won't sell the car ;)

Thnx :) Auto is een maandje geleden verkocht, rijdt voortaan in de regio Wijk aan Zee. Eigenaar wilde de auto volgens mij niet zo laag leggen. Jammer, want op z'n laagst zag de auto er wel het mooiste uit ;) De Charade is vervangen door een Seat Cordoba Cupra 1.8 20VT. Die zal niet verlaagd worden ofzo.

Very nice! Crazy how much lower the subframe is than the bumper, you should put a Renault Laguna splitter on it to make the bumper sit a bit lower?! Looks good anyway, nice car!

Thnx Chris :) I've thought about a front splitter. Main reason not to do, was that at this way I could still take speedbumps quite easy. Lowest point (subframe) was between the front wheels.
As I said above in Dutch, the car was sold last november, after I've had it for about 7 years.. Lack of time, bought a house and no friends left that love to go to meetings. In 2011 I visited 2 meetings. Since last meeting (april 2011) I only drove 45 km's with the car..
I now have a Seat Cordoba Cupra (with the 1.8 20VT). I promised myself not to lower the Seat..
