I'd not bother with any of the stereo upgrades they're expesive for what you get! Once you get it stick in an Alpine (of reasonable quality) and it'll sound great! The standard speakers are really quite good!

Ade

PS I expect to be listening to the sound of steak cooking and beer being opened while I'm washing it!

The line was def drawn before the sound system ... I sing to loud anyway to have great sound, it all gets drowned out :D

The only option now is to tint or not to tint !!

Ade ... I can't really cook but I do a mean order in ... speed dial and the lot, and I do even better in resturants !!

Sorry it's a bad habit I have....

Deffo go for tints if you want an aggresive look! You might want to consider the works air filter and exhaust too, will sound a little tastier than standard....

Was it a cooper your getting?

The chilli pack is a must (make sure you get them to add the stiffer anti roll bar as it's a free option).

But a must and I really mean a must is to get rid of the awful black plastic side repeater inserts!!!!! They're are just plain wrong!!! :sick: Get some nice chrome one (would look great on black) and I'll fit them when I'm washing it :cheese: :grin:
