  172 Cup
I thort it was about time to post up a few quick pics of my 172 Cup 8)

Yup, currently running steelies. Only got so I cud refurb the Turinis but I actually really like them! Completely transforms the look of the car. Suprisingly had loads of positive comments since fitting them. Turini's will be back on soon tho dnt worry... :approve:

V-Maxx coilovers.

I've stripped the rear interior so the back wont go any lower than that, set the front to match. Didn't want to go silly low tho, jus reduce a chunk of the arch gap.

Considering a decat but don't want the exhaust to be much louder. Got a cup racer style front tow eye to fit. Front brake ducting. Been wanting a roll cage for ages so hopefully get one sumtime soon...

Very nice.

I didnt think much of black turinis on the cup but yours looks awesome.
Getting my wheels refurbed soon on my cup, was going straight silver but you have just put a spanner in the works ;)

Yeh I was never 100% sure tbh. Much prefer them now tho looking back.

Sorry to throw in a spanner. Defo put some thought into it. Mine are satin black.

Yeh, thanks again for the wheels RichCup :approve:

Lovely car fella.......makes me tempted to remove all my 'track look' stickering, and go for a more standard look......yours is beautiful!

I'm slightly curious what sized steelies you are using (guessing 16" 6.5/7J ???) and which tyres to match........and any chance you know how heavy are the steels + tyres compared to turinis + tyres??
