First Caddy looking upgrade opinions

Post by Jayofmx » Thu Jul 18, 2019 11:55 am

Well lads, first post on here and first caddy. Man this forum is addictive. Picked up a 2012 of a friend of mine, this will be used as a daily and travelling to mountain bike races. They plan is to carpet line the back, colour code the bumpers and hopefully lower it. Regards lowering it, I dont have a clue so advice is appreciated.

Also I'd love to hear some of your opinions on some upgrades I could do that won't put a big dint in the pocket.

I won't be doing anything outrageous on this as racing mountainbikes is expensive enough, I just want to have a nice looking motor when I'm on the road :D

Cheers lads

another one hooked!😂

You've already got a nice looking van, so thats a good start!
Personally, I'd put a stance+ lowering kit on for £280 and lose the chrome elephant ears!

Then take it from there.....!

I don't actually know, they were on the van when I got it. Looks like an Ebay buy.
