    looks really good kris, but how about painting the base plates on the mirrors silver and leave the little bits on the actual mirror black?

    Lee, they're black for a reason, to carry the window lines.

    I think it's OK to colour code them on darker coloured car's but they just look wrong on lighter coloured car's, IMO of course.

    @ Geoff, i'm still not sure if the car suit's it, i do like it but i'm not sure if it's right on the car, very weird to drive with tho!

    TBH I've yet to see one that fits right with regard to panel constant gaps and that follows the curve of the bonnet, and seeing it on a light car just seems to accentuate how bad these extensions are.

    And you car looks sweet enough without it

    Nice ride Kris. Dont like the extension tho, i always thought it looked to big and bulbus. I do like the JDL one, slighlty smaller with rounded corners so it doesnt line up with the bottom of the a pillars but it just looked nicer.

    How's the extension for visibility? Can you see any of the bonnet at all now?

    im never sure on the bonnet extensions, they just look to "stuck on" on alot of cars they look ok, but doesnt seem to 100% fit yours,

    its a very very nice looking car, just not sure it adds to it? any pictures of before?
