My new 6n2

Recommended Posts

Hi just recently bought my 1.4 6n2 se. Looking to start modding as soon as my bank lets me :)

This is one of my first topics but thought I would start it to show a few pictures of it as I go and get a bit of advice (gunna need it)

This is the day I picked it up

Haven't done a lot just yet just some cheap stuff, replaced the front speakers and tweeters and put a pretty standard stereo in. Also got some matching mats and gators.

Sprayed my badge matte black, came out nice bar a few finger prints

Also I've put a straight through back box on as the original was blown. Makes a a nice noise for no money whilst I slowly do things under the bonnet.

Looking to lower it next as the other half has said she'll treat me to some coil overs for my birthday :0)

Will have more photos up as and when I get stuff done. Advice on cheap easy bits to do would be great

Cheers

Cheers bud, that's helpful. Got some coilies coming beginning of July and thinking about restoring some alloys myself (if I have the patience.) Just doing little bits every time I get a chance really. Thanks for the advice

I'm looking at a set of old BBS R's 5000, but there painted, can you rub down and shine up painted ones or do they have to be painted?

Trying to upload some upload pictures ATM but websites not letting me!

Yeah you can rub the paint down and polish them up, takes a while though. Can always take it some where and they can do it.

I'm not usually a fan of after-market exhausts on 6n2s but that looks nice!

Spent the day compounding out the scratches, waxing and polishing. Still got some more compounding to do, took me for ever.
