I got the M Sport 18"s at the moment... thought of going 20"s but Im one to go for the BMW ones... they look nicer to me personally rather than going after market with BBS etc... (no offence Astra, your car is HOT !!!)
Already got an after-market rear muffler & dual tip exhaust - sounds good. Goes better in my mind....
And installed an K&N air filter
Got the colour-matched eyelids happening (Which i absolutely love! Though many people hate it in this forum!!)
I partner made a silver mesh to go in my M-Sports Rear bumper bar. In our bumper car, we have a sorta 'indentation pattern' that runs across the bar, it was the same dark grey plastic as the rest of the lower half of the bumper, but have mesh in there now which the guys at Doncaster BMW absolutely love and rave about! (mate...it was hand made!!!)
Have a reverse camera put in in my rear number plate...very chic! Looks like I'm spying on ya when we're stopped at the lights and I'm in front!!
Have a playstation installed under front passenger seat (for DVD movies rather than games) & hooked up to the same tv monitor for the reversing camera on my dash (its only small 4") but Im at a dilemma on where to put a bigger screen and not hack up the dash too much. Found a self 'pop up' screen yesterday which im going to look at on Friday to see if I can set it into the top dash central airvent. I love mods, but also hate physically altering the shape-line of the car. I like everything done in 'stealth mode' - not visible at first glance.
I have on order some brushed aluminium rings/ speaker covers that are coming in this or next week to sort of jazz up the interior. I like the sportier aluminium look rather than carbon fibre. CF would be way too dark in my car as I have the black roofing upgrade. so Everything is black inside!!!! Seats, steering/ roof.... its the shiny aluminium that is giving it some colour! HA!
And thats it so far...... not touching the headlights and putting in xenons/ angel eyes...
so im stumped.... thought of rear headrest tvs... pretty easy job to do... but why pay for passengers to have all the fun?!!! I want to have the fun!!!
Maybe I'll go for new speakers and an amp to power them. Then I got the issue of the headunit... and controls on my steering.... too much hassle to muck them up!!! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:coo l:
