    no point asking in the Region....


    I'd maybe suggest getting a chrome/high silver painted boot strip that you get for the coupe...

    That would tie the colour of the wheels in with the back...

    Tinted side repeaters and headlights. Go back to black grill. M3 mirrors.

    But thats just to my personal taste. Think it looks excellent mate.
    Its a jam thing

    Stay in paisley mate.

    I would lower it more but i do deliveries the now on a sunday so as it stands the now it just makes it over speed bumps so i cant lower it til i have stopped that but i would like to get it down maybe 35mm. Suppose i could look into getting the air adjustable suspension. Any ideas how much that would cost?????

    Cheers

    Tinted repeaters, silver indicator bulbs, and jewel or irmscher dark rear lights would be nice extra touches.

    Not a fan of the mirror base plates and grille being colour coded myself as its too much blue so i'd think about changing those bits to break it up a bit too.

    I can kinda see why you're thinking about changing the spoiler, as it doesn't match the reiger kit as well as the Irmscher one, but it is a nice spoiler and remember that you prob won't just be able to use the existing holes for a different type of spoiler.

    But, if you do fancy something a bit different, why not go for smooth instead? You'd have to fill in the spoiler holes to fit a different one anyway, so why not remove the spoiler and get the spoiler holes, wiper, rear badge holes and boot lock smoothed off (leave number plate recess tho imo) and then maybe fit a roof tip spoiler instead?
