    need some opinions please!

    My car has had alot of work done to it over the last month or so,
    Ive ordered my lumma LPC-R Front bumper, got my GSi Skirts, Gsi Rear, Car PC is 90% finished, built a boot install, fitted 308's and changed my cambelt and waterpump, Ive got a bonnet and have been cutting the vents in it today. anyways, as im having the bonnet resprayed my bodyshop chappie has said he wants to blend the paint in with the wings to get it to look right, so my wings need re painting, so why leave them standard???!!!

    im thinking of putting the M3 vents in the side, i really like the mini cooper S type vents as well but i dont think the big S will pass for sport??!!

    Whats people opinions on what i should do to my wings???

    for pics of my car click my sig!

    Love those lights m8. Was wanting those on my front and rear but in silver. How much did it set u back to get them to blend in. I hav only seen them on ebay in black.

    The vents could look good aslong as they r well done and not 2 over the top imo.

    Sorry Luke I promised you pics and dimensions off my bonnet and I forgot. Will try and take some tomorrow if it's not raining. Got a nice little speeding ticket through the post on Friday and it's sort of threw me.

    I agree with a wing vent for his car but not those, they really one work, but if you done a vent similar to the bonnet on the wing, that would look quite cool imo
