I got 20mm on the fronts & 15mm on the rears. The rears now fill the arches better and give it an even more aggressive stance.

Not had chance to test it regards handling yet, but the drive home was no different in ride quality, but mine is quite a "hard drive" anyway without having EDC.

I am now wondering what to do next.

So far I have:

Matt black fronts grills
Matt black side grills
Blackline rear lights
Matt black vinyl roof
Matt black wheels
Remus Race Exhaust
Custom made rear diffuser
BNC Air filter
Eibach pro sportline springs

So any ideas would be great. (Yes Mikey, I know Xpipes and a remap! )

Cheers guys

Marc


what to do next?

CSL rear boot would look awesome

That is lovely.
But. And it is a picky nitty but.
It looks like the exhaust pipes stick out a fraction too far.
But it is a stunning car and one i would have done exactly the same mods with.

Me to buddy, there may be a very slim outside chance of me getting down but I won't know until late Saturday night. If not we'll have to get together on track sometime, a mate of mine has a couple of Lotus's, a Caterham and a 911 turbo track car, that would make a great day out! Oh, and a couple of M's

Have a great day Sunday if I don't manage to get down

Marc

P.S Should have the splitter on by the end of next week.

Thanks Biscuit

The pipes were an issue but I have had a custom diffuser made which you can't really see on the posted pics, you can on this link though as you'll see the difference:

Love it.. love it!!!

The only aspect I would change is the exhaust.. I would shorten the exhaust pipes by couple of inches.
