Bought this basic white Caddy in November 2019, done a few mods the past couple of months, wasn't planning on doing anything major to the car, but it got a bit out of hand ... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

When i got it:

Image
Image

Started out with the usual beginner mods, tinting the rear taillights...
Image

But, i'm on Caddy2k to learn what you can do, so i quickly realised that you can switch a lot of parts, so i ditched the tinted lights and replaced them with some smoked 2017 units.
Image

72 Bhp tot 150 Bhp > 1.6l TDI
Image

Railcover, spoiler and sidebars added!
Image

And then came the wheels, i chose to go for 18 inch, i wanted 19 inch but it drove terrible.
Image

I think you can guess where this is going..... :mrgreen:
Image

To the ground :roll:
Image

What a bit of lowering can do to a car....
Image

Replaced the front bumper lip because i broke the other one :oops:
Image

My main project car has become my second project car :lol: :lol:
Image

Added some Caddy Life mirrors and made a comparison shot matching the first pictures

So last week i wrapped the roof but i'm not sure yet about the yellow tinted foglights....
And it's a small detail, but i replaced the licenseplates with luxury ones (letters are 3d)

Today:

Got my hands on this seats!
Image

I've read that most people use Touran frames, i just drilled holes in the excisting frames and bolted them in!
Image

I still need to get the Ergo Active functionality's working, so i'm going to pull some wires in the next couple of days.

Did you do it all by yourself? I got a mate (who is a carwrapper) help me, i think it took us around an hour to fit it...
I almost did mess it up, but he saved the day hahaha

Unfortunately I did and should have used a spay underneath like I usually do at work. It's annoying as quite a flat roof. I have a mk4 bumper to go on mine but need to finish painting it yet

So, I replaced the grill today. Not quite happy with the bottom section, as it's imitation quality.. The fitment isn't as good as original, but it's in and looks so much better! ImageImageImage

Yeah, it is a fun meeting. I will next time!

Maybe i'll go next year. It depends on a good friend of mine, he loves MX5s and i'm just joining him. :lol:
