    Looks good IMO mate. Would look better in a high gloss black to match the wheels and do the number place recess aswell.

    as for looking like a lesser spec car, not in that colour it won't

    i think what i'll do is get the mirrors done full in gloss black like the wheels and then go from there...i think the dark mirrors will look good....the strips i really dont know....ive seen mk4 with the strips removed and smoothed and that looks pretty good,i thought about taking strips from a diff car and fitting but thats prob a waste of time tbh....thanks for input so far...still leaves me in mixed mind though. i thought about getting rid of the gsi but having 2nd thoughts now....i still love it too bits even though mines been a bit troublesome....probs gonna get engine rebuilt within next 6months get everything i can strengthened...im hard on cars and like em to be fierce...anyways im yapping on now so back to thread!!

    When you rebuild, plop an M32 box in mate, it'll feel like a completely different car.
