    advice please...

    my planned mods for my car are pretty much save for engine mods, but lately i look at it and think it looks boring and normal,

    i dont want a OTT car but something that looks nice which atm i dont think mine does,

    dont want new wheels (like the standard look aswell) cant lower it (need a bit of height around this area) need the bump strips black the amount they get used, so im running out of ideas,

    any ideas you have let me know, just to improve the look of the car,

    Have you still got the standard pantry window mesh? If so, get something a bit more robust with bigger holes

    You sure a wee 30mm drop is out of the question? Transforms the look of them imo.

    The other plans above look good too. The carbon door pillar trim off the GSi would suit it I think also.

    Definitely debadge, colourcode the handles and delock the boot handle. Delock the drivers side door handle? tints always looks good on silver cars. Grille, bonnet extension, anthracite Sri-T wheels? Smoked side repeaters to match your headlights/tail lamps. don't know if theyre to your taste but some irmy wingmirrors? I was never a huge fan but i saw some in real life and they looked really good.
