    Very nice, badly wants slamming now to pull off the those wheels. Some coilovers would transform it.

    The only thing I dislike is the exhaust, too jap for the car.

    yea wanna change exhaust - ebay purchase and didn't realise how big it was until I recieved. Makes a nice deep tone though.
    Id like a letter box style I think.

    Would like to lower but I think my ET is 35-38 (cant remember which) and my area is speed bumps ville.
    Maybe 30mm drop but not sure if its gonna rub....def needs some lowering though.
    No idea about this area of mods?? Any suggestions? Prices, springs...etc

    i agree, get a subtle 3 inch inward rolled box... would look very nice..

    one other addition which would look great would be a sri-t rear skirt!

    spot on dude!

    yep you guessed it - only wished id gona abit darker with the tint but like to stay on the right side of MR police officer

    I have white indicators as standard and as I was getting silver lip alloys I though id make a connection with these parts with the rears. Ive had the dark Irmy lights but didn't like.

    I knew everyone would be on my case with this - but I totally agree.

    Just need some friendly advice on this subject keeping in mind I dont want to go too low as there are many speed bumps around me and I dont wanna bash my bumper. Destroyed my last one on ramps, kerbs, stone drives etc. (standard bumper fitted with front lip)

    Would want them fitted for me - so need a rough £ estimate.

    Looking as said needs lowering think LMF are doing a special price on some springs at the moment for £99, but im sure someone will be along to confirm that

    Not keen on the exhaust, looks too big and out of place, think the twin letter box style irmscher one would suit it much more!

    Also the eyebrows look a bit darker than the paint, or is that just how the pics have turned out?

    But overall i really like the style of your car, looks really
