    Actually quite liking what you've got going on inside with the interior colour coding there. Nice.

    I'm assuming after going through the trouble of doing that, that you'll be colour coding your bump strips somewhere along the line? Looks like they've got the terrible fade look going on at the mo - just like mine lol

    looks awesome mate really good job of the car!

    only things tat let it down for me! is the gaps under the spoiler on the edges(not a fan) and the headlights need to be darker.

    other than that its gorgeous

    Cheers for the comments guys. Just so you know, I bought the car pretty much as is (aside the colour coded interior and ICE) so it's the start of a big project really. Got a big list of things to get sorted.

    To name a few:

    Black Angel eyes
    Rieger infinity front and rear splitters (Rear will make the exhaust appear closer to the bumper)
    Different tailights, love the new ones LMF have!

    Lots of gadgetry inside. That's just a taster!

    And Jon: I'd never noticed that until i got down and saw it that angle, what could be done about that do you think?

    Looking very tidy mate. Them wheels suit the car very well. As has been said you just need to colour code the bump strips!

    Nice one Mike, cheers mate! Yeah I love the wheels, not seen them anywhere else. Some of them are kerbed real bad though, like where it meets the tyre. Hopefully I can get them refurbed and they're not buckled!
