    Opinions on possible changes to my coupe??

    Right folkes, i was determined that i wasnt going to keep my coupe for much longer but looks like i will be for a few more years now. So I have some alterations in mind if I can afford them. I was thinking of smoothing the front and rear splitters in loossing the cut out in the rear bumper, possibly getting some morettes and having the wheels done in a more anthracite finish. Here it is as she stands:











    So what you all think of my ideas for changes? if theres any bored photoshopers that fancy a play your more than welcome!!

    i recon you should keep the cut out at the back but smooth the rear splitter on the sides so it blends into the bumper, buy the 19"s snowflakes and paint them anthracite, and smooth the front splitter. imo i would keep the lights you got, they look much better then morettes lights.

    I have to say I am quite shocked people dont like the morettes, I have always been 50/50 on them and sort of thought they look better on darker colours, but surely they look stunning on jimmy C's old coupe?





    Hope you dont mind me using your pics jimmy?

    Both cars look stunning - can't say I'd change much on yours tbh but I know how it is when you get bored etc. What about tuning engine and keep the bodywork how it is? Or has that already been done lol

    Cheers mate and yeah thats exactly how it is. I was determined not to spend any more on it, but seen as i know i will be keeping it for a while i want to change some bits.

    I have done the basic vecy C, panel filter and re-map on the engine, but if i have to keep it for a few years I cant see me ever selling it, so I would probably end up dropping in a turbo and slamming it just for shows when i got a new car, so im not going to spend anything on engine mods at the minute!

    I think it looks awesome as it is, blending in were the splitters meet would be good but as for the rest leave as it is and spend money on your turbo.

    Just my opinion but its your car.

    Think this looks awesome TBH

    Smoothed recess, smoothed splitter, removed number plate light (use LED's under the handle), smoothed bootlock and smoothed handle into the boot lid + anthracite alloys.
