    Thats such a minty fresh car.
    I would personally get some light tints on the windows.
    I was going to say get an irmy bonnet extension too, but with the carbon bonnet, I dont think it would be too suitable.

    Spray the bonnet and get rid of those nasty mirrors, the originals are a million times nicer, don't look stupid and you can see out of them. Pic of the arse would be good.

    Other than that, it's nice.

    OPC grille is nice. TBH, standard mirrors are by far the nicest and neatest IMHO. Failing that, go for some Irmscher items.

    Back end looks neat. Looks nice without a spoiler, could always got for a small spoiler like the one fitted to the Eco4.

    Remove the VXR badge too.

    Car would look so much more slick with the bonnet sprayed. From a distance it just looks like you've fitted an upainted aftermarket bonnet.

    This is my interpretation of a carbon/painted bonnet with opc grill if I would have one done. Have also created a vent in the front bumper near the wheel arch, and relocated the indicator to the wing mirrot to make it less chavish what do you think

    Now where did I put all of those Irmscher bits?

    Sorry, but I think the wing mirrors look waayyyyy more chavish after that photoshop. Those mirrors are just awful and are the only realy thing on the car that isn't nice.

    OPC grille looks nice, but the entire bonnet needs painting to match the rest of the smooth look. It looks confused in its current guise and even more so half painted.
