    Hey folks
    Thought i'd leave this here - it's a classic in my eyes, but that's probably a little bit bias. Anyway, say hello to my 58 plate Twingo GT, pushing a phenomenal 1.15 litre turbo-charged engine to the limit to achieve a truly mind-blowing 101bhp as standard.

    So I bought her in April 2013, completely standard with about 18k on the clock;

    scontent_b.xx.fbcdn.net_hphotos_ash3_t1_575812_10151397751289998_2013616448_n.jpg

    My first mods were pretty simple. I bought a GT foot rest plate that was commissioned by a member of Twingo133.net;

    A BMC panel filter for a slight increase in breathing.

    Next came wind deflectors courtesy of Team Heko

    and a stubby aerial

    For my birthday, my parents paid to have my front lip, license plate panel, roof, spoiler and rear diffuser vinyl wrapped;

    Next up, Power Pads! Direct bespoke replacements for the Twingo's rubber pedal covers;

    and then she went down 40mm on Spax springs;
    scontent_a.xx.fbcdn.net_hphotos_prn1_t1_935835_10151485111059998_426226560_n.jpg
    KTec's Ultra Performance GT catback system soon followed;

    and i swapped the garish garage-provided tax disc holder with a much more subtle one;
    fbcdn_sphotos_h_a.akamaihd.net_hphotos_ak_frc3_t1_r270_1157616_10151697910364998_1167453_n.jpg
    At the time i had no intention of changing my alloys, so I painted the diamonds of the centre caps black;

    but then that all went to hell when i was offered these Lenso RS5s. A quick repair, bunch of spigot rings, fitment and alignment later and this is how she currently stands;

    Love the pedal covers! Those wheels are tidy too, suit the car.

    i really wanted them pedals when i had my gt from new, but 2 seprate dealers couldnt give me the part number for them. Car looks good, got much else planned for it?

    I'm currently contemplating having the silver spokes done galaxy print or Cadbury purple, but other than that, not a lot. It's a nice little run around as it is, I'm not really pushing for huge figures or massive lows.
