Koni Sport Yellows all round now, installed myself :D My god are they good. Amazing the transformation while still using lowering springs.

Great write-up on fitting the strut inserts Here.

They look stock... but they really aren't.

Right got some updates :) Not browsed these forums for a while will have to get back into posting on here again.

Recently ditched the Konis due to opertunity to get in on a groub buy for BC Coilovers BR series. Saved £150 on them. These BC Coilovers are superb and the quality is outstanding. For those that don't already know BC made Greddy's coilovers which shows they know how to make 'em :). Most importantly though the handling is more than brilliant. Very pleased with them.

Pulsar grille front end conversion is well underway now. I did the custom work myself with some help from a lad from my owners club. Getting a bodyshop to paint it though. Being painted at this moment :) DIY work was tricky but we got there. Pics to follow to show you what I have in store.

I've also been making a collection of parts ready for stage 2 which includes IC upgrade, hybrid turbo, remap with dastek unichip q, with gauges to check it's all running well:

My Dad just took his M3 evolution out from hibernation so thought I'd grab a pic :):

Finally got my custom bumper/grille work done :bigsmile: Very pleased with the results and I think this is how the N16 Almera should have looked :)

I did the work myself and got the painting done at a bodyshop. Took a while to get it right but it was worth it I feel ;)

I reckon the back end is sitting much nicer now you have the coilovers on.

The whole stance of the car is sweet and I love the aggressive front end.

Nice work. :thumbsup:

Wow man that looks really great! I don't think I've ever seen an Almera actually but that looks really sweet! I really like the custom grill and rims, makes the car look quietly aggressive.

I like the intercooler mod job you did as well.

What future mods do you have planned?

Thanks for the update, when do you think it will all be finished - or is this one of those never finished projects that keeps having new things done and added;)
