    Help me settle my tiny mind.

    Im trying at the moment to get the car ready for this years shows, and was going to change the whole car, but due to me having a prison sentance issued next year (wedding) It would effect savings for the wedding unless I waited to april but then I wouldnt have time so I have decided on a few exterior changes, and the interior is a seperate matter, But the front bumper is going to be fixed proporley by some one who is competenat to use wet and dry unlike the last two dodgy body shops I used, but this is were I need your help.
    I need help deciding on what Im changing or if I should stick.

    This is the arse end at the moment.
    What I was doing aint going to be viable at the moment so im stuck with stay as it is or ad this spoiler

    I think my look a little ott for my car
    or this


    and again with the front I have the slatted grill
    and have some coupe front lights comming soon

    as seen above but think of changing the grill to a poster single bar like this


    Im changing the repeaters to the smoked focus ones
    And the last question is as you can see the wheels I have are the silver bk 299's the lips need re polishing and I was thinking of refurbing the rims antherite black with a polished lip or white with a polished lip. or should I stick to silver


    cheers for the help and if anyone fancys doing a photo shop that would be great or other ideas would be good

    i rekon the silver alloys look really good on your car...makes them look nice and big, imo i wouldn't change the colour

    i like the second spoiler down, subtle and sporty

    I would do the following money allowing:

    Rear:

    Change exhaust style to letter box.
    Lose all badges
    Smooth handle
    Ms-Design spoiler
    Lose wiper
    fill in middle section of bumper.

    Front:

    Postert grill
    BMW side repeaters (focus dont suit your car IMHO)
    If you can afford it do the front bumper mod the same as my favorite as well or change fogs to rounds.

    Wheels:

    Leave as they are, unless you can afford to go for some deep dishes.


    Brett IMO your car is stunning it only needs a few more touches to define its over all look though, I think if you can do those bits then concentrat on a very simple but imaculate interior and ICE set up and it will be perfect.

    Thats it nothing more!

    As you know mat I spoke to the Mark and lee before about redoing my front like that G but I was advised against it because of cracking easily, but I may do it any way I think, can not be that hard a job tbh.

    The wheels I have found some Brocks I have fell in love with but can not justyfy the expense of it. The ice is being done as we speak its all in just the screen needs finishing and painting and the build finishing off and the interior has to have something done to it, as its really gone tatty.
    The zorst, I was going for a oval but the letter box woud look better.

    I tell you something chap you read my mind like a book lol

    well using a rear handle from a van would be best as the number plate lights intergrated in the handle looks better that.
    Do you still have your boot handle chap

    no my boot handle went a while ago. Be carefull with which one you get though, believe it or not but the boot handle on a coupe is different to a hatch, its only very slight but they dont fit each other.

    You would have to get a van one and try to be honest.
