    Nice example there. And i like the small but not that noticeable touches

    Drivers door handle delocked, and boot badge smoothed off. Mine just had that done thursday. Also the smoothed filler cap and boot handle flushed. I wanted to do that but couldn't be arsed to find a solenoid and a method to pop the boot so left mine as it was, minus the rear badge

    Nice to see another example, not in the breaking section as it usually is

    How do you find the brakes on it? I have considered drilled and grooved but heard they can sometimes be worse than the standard setup. I have the standard setup and they leave a lot to be desired trying to stop a 2.0 turbo.....

    hay buddy yeah the subtle touches are just what i wanted. the factory look

    rear number plate light flushed and moved under handle

    rear tow eye in bumper smoothed too

    brakes are ebc there not to bad i would suggest u go for yellow or red as green fade pretty quick
