Hey Guys and Girls. Its been a while since posting here I have had a busy busy year. Meeting my new partner and changing jobs also having the possibility of moving to France!!.


Anyway You may or may not have seen my car Merlot before but for those who haven't this is My stage 2 Hdi Glx 15 Years old and 213000 Miles and still puts a smile on your face to drive


 





I have spent a lot of time money and effort customising this car to my satisfaction this is not everyone's taste but I have done this for me.

So far to date that I can remember:

2.0 Hdi stage 2 Remapped by Hdi-Tuning.co.uk
Upgraded (stage 3) paddle clutch and pressure plate.
Full 2.5" stainless straight through turbo back exhaust.
Front mount intercooler with boost controller and boost gauge custom painted engine cover.
Drums to disk rear axle conversion lowered 40mm.
Custom painted 307 challenger alloys
Gti 180 front rear bumper with front and rear seats.
307 gear stick.
Full custom black suede interior door cards, Roof a, b and c pillars, parcel shelf and Full dashboard.
Orange to purple/blue smd converted clocks and speedo dials.
Limo tinted rear windows
Aftermarket head unit with sub and amp 6x9's and front door speakers sub box re-upholstered in purple Fluff!.
106 quicksilver interior grab handles.
206cc black and red leather steering wheel.
SP wheel arches
5d carbon fibre bonnet vinyl wrap.
Morette headlights with Devil Rgb controllable lights inside the projector units.
1 loud 115Db fog horn
1 old school ORUUUUUGAAA horn.
Rear aftermarket Led light clusters and rare projector Fogs (not cheap Chinese crap).

Here is a few pictures of where I am at:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I do have an old project thread but I am just going to start this as a new one As Merlot has a twin I would like to show you My second Project my partner Emma's car Moet


Moet is a 2004 2.0 Hdi S on 134000 miles and being a standard 90 bhp compared to my 160 feels like a snail haha.

 

 

I have already got a set of Morettes and Also painted the Wheels Purple. Then sprayed the Engine bay parts to match

 


 

Lowered it with a friend and a few tools by 50mm

 


also started my own Facebook group French Modified UK. so if you are on Facey come and show us your car.

its actually quite clean to be honest just give the seude a quick brush now and then or a light hoover. and I just got Emmas 206 Stage 1 mapped this afternoon so its not 120 BHP instead of the 90 factory.

I have a drive torque stage three clutch and uprated pressure plate. It's okay but i would have spent the extra 100 for a black diamond or Helix as this one seems lacking.
