Carbon Copy’s new car.

Ok, here we go people. 172 ownership starts this coming weekend if all goes well.

Since ill be going from a 1.2 to a 2.0 16v with 170+bhp ill be taking it easy for a while...maybe.

The car already has a few tasty bits - B&M quickshift, Pipercross Viper, Eibach Pros, Clear side repeaters, Mk2 rear lights, K-Tec stealth exhaust and the 17"s are like new.

I was wondering if anyone has gone from the bottom to the top of the ladder in one go like i will be doing, and what i have to watch out for...apart from GATSOs.

anyways, im dead happy with it!....so here are the pics.

MINTER.:D:D

  Weeman sucks ****


oh, you bought that one. saw that on the for sale bit a while back and told my mate to go for it. nice car but not a fan of those wheels.

i went from a focus to my cup, as long as youre not a complete idiot behind the wheel then sure youll get on fine. keep it progressive and as more confidence comes, go harder and youll soon get used to it. bet youre grinnging your tits off when you drive it??

You should have a go in a cup matey - Then you will see what a good decision is was to get a mk1 - I had a cup before mine.
