    Modify or not

    Do i or dont i

    i like my car as it is but sometimes look and think it lacks a certain edge

    I have already had it lowered and i am in the process of having the door strips/skirts sprayed.

    Do i stop there or do even more? Opinions and suggestions welcomed as im stumped on whether to leave it or modify it.

    Or do i modify the engine for some power

    Please vote on the poll

    A good choice in colour coding strips and handles but maybe do the skirts as well apart from that just enjoy the car only you can decide on what you really want from the car.

    smaller pics next time .... or please use thumbnails with links !
    thanks

    depends what you really want from the car ..... and your budget...
    For best returns, use bolt-on mods that you can sell on....when your finished... such as alloys.....

    As for engine - if you start modding that - you'll eventually want turbo power - so maybe think about changing car if you want more power.....

    Follow jam On Twitter
    Phone Regal or Courtenay Sport. They will be able to tell you how much and whats needed ect.

    As for mods. I would mod the lot mate but nothing OTT. I think with just a few tweeks you could have an amazing car.
    Its a jam thing

    Ok, so it seems exterior and engine work

    so i think, exterior work 1st but alloys of standard VX range ratehr than anything else as i do like how car looks

    Engine wise, spose its go mad time and get as much power as possible.
