Some new pics after upgrades

Hi all,

Here are some pics of my car after installing M3 type side skirts, Aero lip style front lip and 18 in alloys, rears with 20mm spacers (I have have some spacers for the front to go on too).





I will upload more as and when I add on a few mods

looking good mate! love the mods so far and definitely +1 for the M3 Lip too! one of the first mods i did to mine!

although i hate to be negative i am just not sure about those wheels

everything else looks great and its coming along nicely maybe some colour coded grills?

Love the aero lip and side skirts and the M3 lip will definitely improve the backend, but I feel those wheels don't do it justice.

As P 5UML said, not trying to be negative. I am sure you would prefer honest feedback.

Yea honest feedback is what it's all about the wheels are a greyish colour and I will be getting them redone in black.
I am also considering either colour coding the grille or getting it done in black.

see how much you can get the wheels refurbed for etc and just see how much it could cost you for a decent set of aftermarket wheels mate

i know mine will be up for sale soon and not asking for alot for them either but a nice set of 19s on that car will really set it off and tie in all the exterior mods you have done!

as your trim around the windows is silver i have a feeling the black grills may not suit so maybe CC would work better?? just a suggestion

Yes true about the crome window trims, im looking in to getting that in black too, hence the reason for similar colour grills

car looks great, and maybe its just me, but to my eyes the wheels look a little lost! especially on the front. Are the tyres the right profile? looks like theres waay to much arch space at the front.

how odd, the front tyres just look too small, like theres too much air around them. the first picture shows this quite well. maybe you just need to drop the front a bit
