Celebrating 99 mods - Sockets build

Celebrating 99 mods

Just past the 60 mods milestone, so to celebrate I thought I'd pull out all the pics from my build thread and condense them into a pic heavy mini build thread..

Just past the 70 mod stage.. so updated with most recent changes

Just past the 99 mod stage ... so once again updating this thread

Just past the 120 mod stage... updated again

Ticked over 150 time to edit and bring this thread up to date

Has been a while since the last update so added mod through to 161



Enjoy

Mod 0 - Stock

Before joining the N54 came off a hairdresser Porsche Boxster, nice car but much happier with the E92. Here it is before the modding frenzy began
