Re: Super standard S2 newbie

Looks great, can't beat a black car! Re mods, as others have said make it all reversible and keep the parts. Upgrading toe Links, baffled sump etc all a good idea and not really seen as mods, just protecting your investment. But I have kept all of those bits should I ever sell so they next owner can...
