To join in is always better than not to join in so....

With no proper modifications to report, I give you my electric window temporary repair kit, Temporary means anything up to a year right? and its a pain taking door cards off and fiddling about and fixing it properly.....Very effective.

I'll have to fold on the Steering Wheel Cover & Matching Dice....

..but I could open a new round with
Roofbars & a choice of Roofbox or Bicycle carrier
Removal of Air Con
and swapped ugly alloys to steels with genuine wheeltrims.

I also enjoyed a period of a couple of days minus rear window.... ooops!

Modifications, or adding what would be a genuine optional extra?

If it wasn't on your car as it was when it rolled out the factory, then it is a modification, genuine option or not.

I fitted a gearbox to mine when it came out of the field. :)

Apart from a HDD to CF Card Head Unit upgrade, I've replaced all the internal, boot and pavement lighting with some Carlos Fandango colourful LEDs and the following
Front & Rear Dash Cameras
Rex V1P.PNG
Front & Rear Radar / Laser / Speed Detector with European GPS-based Camera / Speed Trap /Mobile Hotspot Locations
Snooper.PNG
Coat Hangars for Front Seats

Water / Spill Proof Rubber Boot Floor Protection

Twin Boot Cargo Nets

Hardly exciting, but definitely no fluffy dice here.

Oh I forgot about the calipers! (another 5bhp extra) Still holding up well, thanks Davie!

Also does this count as a modification? The aluminium gear knob gets very cold first thing these winter mornings.
