Greg, pics aren't that clear since my kidney grills are chrome still. Once they are a diff colour ill put up more pics.

I'm gonna respray mine in a diff colour soon anyways. I have to say the paint / finish on the scoop is weak in that I must have scratched the surface of the scoop tiny bit when installing it and by of the paint chipped off. It's not visible at all but I questioned - still for the money I paid I'm not at all disappointed - just an FYI!

If its the Cyba scoops then for the money they are a great buy!

All I need to do know is decide on the tips....

So my car will go in next week to have the finishing touches done to the Audio and also the first of many changes to the exterior

I realised I hadn't uploaded this pic of the Scoops Fresh out the box so here you go.. Yeah I bought Cyba Tips and Scoops! Tell you what, I cannot WAIT to put on the tips, I think that'll set of the rear of my car so nicely once the entire Kit comes on..

As per my post above, I've only just had the time to use this Dr. Leather stuff and boy oh boy... what a difference it has made!

The leather feels alot more softer than before and has also brought back a good matt finish! It's so effortless I tell you!

I was quite skeptical having read how easy this is to apply - I questioned it's effectiveness but no doubt this will stay in my collection for many years to come! Very very impressed!

Hit up Darryl at Detailing World or go through google/ebay to find this stuff - highly recommended! No pics as I just wanted to get on with it after having spent almost all afternoon cleaning the car.

Subjective I know but It smells nice too - like fresh leather!

It has a slight TCP smell but it's not that strong... it's more the fresh leather smell but it's certainly not off-putting.

I love the "TCP" of Gliptones liquid leather, personally.

Which reminds me - I need to buy some more... Over to elitecarcare..

Elitecare are good! Do you put coronado cherry cali scent in your car? Can't remember whether it was that or something else but your car smelt nice from the inside! Cherry like!

Anyways, minor update.. I'm close to buying a Dension Gateway 500 + AVR module to enable iPod / iPhone playback thus making my CDs completely redundant! We live in the digital world and I love my music too much to be listening to the same damn CD for a whole year! Yes Mp3 burning would be a much more cost effective solution but the Dension will also allow me to have TV playback and future proof for when I want to add a reversing camera.

I bought some angel eyes off a forum member couple months ago, decided to sell them thinking yellow's fine yellow rings will do.. and boy was I mistaken.. quickly bought another pair, H8 20w (Gen 2 or whatever the latest one is) CREE bulbs off ebay. Installed them in 5 mins and here's a pic. As said, nothing ground breaking but I'm a happy chap!



Ground breaking will come when the car is fully done by end of April! The fecking weather is doing my head in!

So what other plans have you got?

Lights are looking good. When you get fed up of having the brighter inner angel eye, you know where to get your LED job done

Plans.. plans are as follows:
- Already dropped on coils so you know I'm not promoting 4x4 status
- Roll arches slight and give a small -ve camber purely for looks
- Aero Lip, M sport Side Skirts, M sport rear bumper with a specially touched up rear diffuser
- Custom paint work under the bonnet
- Custom work on the front end of the car and maybe even at the rear of the car It's I'm bold and brave enough...
- Finishing touches to my ICE install which I'll upload pics of when done and
- Remap to 340 - 350 BHP
- LCI rear lights possibly
Last but not least.. the make or break ... but in my eyes, Make...
- Rare, 2 piece split rims - Deep Dish!

I wasn't going to mention the M Sport stuff but thought its not like they're so secret!!

Yeah I was THIS >.< close to going down your AE route but had to stop due to funds but may get on it later down the line if I wanna change up the look!

Your list is spot on... But funny ...why is it funny I hear you say? Because these mods will bring your car to another level of sexy which will be begging to ask for more. And then the real modding begins hehe

I am excited to know what sort paint ideas you have for the front and rear?

Just thought I would tease you a little more on your own thread.

Look how bad ass this silver e92 looks with blacked out headlights and white led angel eyes.
