Hi all,this is my first time at owt like this so bare with me. . haha


Got my fabia in feb 2011. .

First mod was a bonnet bra(marmite i know).. this is what she looked like




within the first 2 and half months of ownership the turbo went bang =[ . . but luckly was still under warrenty to the garage i got it from =] happy days

with the new turbo in place i got it remapped,and she put out 162.5hp and 265ftlb of torque (dont have a copy of the graph on my computer)

left it standard other than the map for a while but then the mod bug hit haha

i wanted tinted headlights but without having to split them so opted for flyeyes,about 10quid to do both headlights and fogs,

=]

sticker bombed my rear reg plate recess,

i wanted to make it look a little lower but having alot of speedbumps near where i live didnt wanna go silly low so on went some eibach -25mm springs...


as ya can tell from the bonnet bra and sticker bombing im a fan of the euro look,so got these



heres how she looked,



next was the exhaust,opted for full turbo back decat system with twin tips rather than the standard oval,



with winter fast approching, i refurbed the standard wheels for the crappy road conditions,did em black with blue and green pearl mixed into the paint,


all modding stopped over the winter period but i carried on collecting parts,got hold of some coilovers,coz it just needed to go lower,did alot of research into stance and staggered wheels ect and decided id like to enter some show and shines,so the first show set me a deadline to get stuff done,also bought a FMIC during the winter and got it fitted as soon as the weather was good enough(dont have pics)

next i got the coilis on and ordered my rear wheels again but an inch wider,making it 7.5j on the front and 8.5j rears,needing some tire stretch to get the rears in the arches,all this was about the week before my first show and shine (elsecar mega meet)

got my engine cover wrapped in a custom design by a friend of mine,


so the car was ready for its first show and shine. . . needless to say i was happy when i scooped best skoda at the show =D

heres some pics from the show and how she stands today.


























got alot more plans for the car,so watch this space

thanks for reading,as i say this is my first attempt at a build thread so hope its not too shabby =]
