    that looks really nice! yours is the one with the orange engine and interior? saw it at PVS and it looked immense! really like that grille too, makes it look more like a VXR8!

    how did you have the vents put in?

    yes that's mine thanx
    I did it myself just cut the holes and drilled bits for the clips pretty easy really after the first cut. They let out loads of heat and help with the airflow thru the intercooler and rad and allow my air intake to suck better. A worthwhile mod for sure on a turbo car...

    I'll say it quietly .... Ford not cheap though, they were £195 for the pair (with 10% discount normally £215), there are some copies on ebay for less
