Front Grille
So, continuing on, it was then another year before I did anything else. So next up was a de-badged grill I also got some eyebrows for my birthday. However, they were a crap fit, and also the paint I had made up at Halfords was a crap colour match.

Window Tints
I then set about tinting the rear windows, as both my previous cars had the windows tinted also: Went for Limo black on the rear quarters and the tail gate. I did this myself, and there were a few creases on the tail gate, but happy enough for the time being. While I was at it, I also...

Sound System
Then a couple of weeks later, I got round the fitting the install I had from my 106. This was only going to be a temp things, as I missed the bass. Now, I made a big mistake in selling that Sony head unit, as the one I replaced it with, is absultely s**te, and have had to put up with it for...

Purchase!
This is just as I bought the car 3 years ago (22nd July 2004), with 40,000 miles on the clock. That weekend I took it down to Devon. After driving a 1.1 106 for 2 years, it was such an improvement.

Service
Wow, I'm knackered. Set off this morning at 04:15 to get to Daz's Mum's house for him to do all the work. Woke up to a inch of snow! That cleared though on the M1. Was also socked at the £5.60 I had to pay to cross the bridge to get into Wales. Might as well make the most of the view...

Light Conversion
So, after that, I had the chance to get some smoked rear lights from Snowman (Leon) on here for a very good price. Once they were in, the front stood out like a sore thumb, so again, thanks to Snowman, I good price was agreed for some Smoked Headlights as well. I...

More Tinting
It was then almost another year before I did anything else, and I eventually got the front windows tinted, and the tail gate re-done. Also, on the way back from my Holiday, one of the eye brows decided it wanted to take a flying lesson....while doing 70mph on the motorway.
