    Pics of my MK5 :)

    Hi peeps, well i've finally got round to posting some pics I took a few weeks back, shortly after fitting the rear bumper extension on my MK5 as well as a brief history of the mods I've done thus far.

    So this is how it looked when I bought it apart from the rear tints, which I had done shortly after buying:



    Then I sprayed and fitted the front lexmaul splitter, sideskirts and brows (not great pics soz):






    So then I got bored with the front grill and changed it to:



    After this, I took the plunge and bought some 18" BK999s which I love (but hate to clean) and also bought the JDL rear bumper extension which I sprayed and fitted myself and painted the calipers and colour coded the foglight and lower bumper grills. Please note, these pics were taken a couple of days after fitting the rear bumper extension, so it still needed to be polised (got round to it this weekend, so looking nice and shiny now) so it looks a bit dull in the pics:









    Comments welcome guys. Although yes I know it needs to be lowered, but for practicality reasons, this is not something I'm looking into atm. Also needs some debadging on the back and I've bought some insignia washer jets which I was going to fit weekend gone, but crappy weather meant that didn't happen!

    Hey Jimmy, thanks not a seperate part at all, just last minute thought that turned out pretty well! Masked off carefully and then sprayed. I tried copying the top grill design onto the bottom grills, but it looked OTT so toned it back to just that.

    I know what you mean mate, i'm not 100% on it too and for that reason I'm thinking of buying an aftermarket one for, if anything, a comparison. Need a little more funds for that though

    Would look awesome with a nice badgeless irmscher grille. Def fair play for doing something different with the red but sometimes you have to just accept the tried and tested version looks that little bit better lol
