    take out back seats and boot build and put a new full install in
    taking up the full area of the back of the car

    I really don't mean to offend you but why put a kit on it?

    Why not get a new car rather than spending all that money on a bodykit?

    Get a GSI you know you want to.

    I would go with the smoothing and maybe candy colouring.

    If i'm being honest, in my opinion, it looks as though your car has been put together from the sum parts of 2 donor cars - one silver and one black. If you were to smooth things out and colour code it (single colour) i think it could look quite good

    completely agree and the 2-tone is one of them things you either love or hate. it was done for something unusual and certainly served its purpose but now im wanting a single candy colour all smoothed in i think with a more subtle kit

    this isnt meant to be offensive but - whatever you do will make it look better (i really dont like big kits)

    it could look great fully smoothed and in a single bright colour (even with a kit on it)

    this is all my opinion and you should just do whatever you want to it - its your car after all!!

    thats the whole idea when i say new kit im thinking something subtle maybe evan standard but smoothed and then a single colour most probs candy

    i understand the car is NOT everones taste and im wanting advise for NEW mods to change it
