    My Coupe from New

    Well i thought i would make a new thread showing how my car has come along since January when i got it.

    Heres some pics of when i first got it







    Then i decided to make my mark on it so

    Got some HID's fitted and wing mirrors sprayed





    But they were sprayed wrong colour so got them redone but with a few more things aswell hope you all like

    Got some rear bumper spats sprayed Anthrasite and chrome boot strip sprayed



    Then i went a little mad and decided to get some more things sprayed like headlight eyebrows and got a rear window spoiler. Also got a set of turbo rims sprayed









    There is also a few more things im wanting fitted and sprayed but will post pics up when i get them sorted.

    Comments welcome Cheers Danny

    No they came with the car and i quite like them not really seen another with them. Only problem i have with them is there not hidden enough i think im going to have to make a rear splitter for inbetween them.

    Also theres going to be quite abit more getting done when i get the money

    Those exhausts look fantastic when the are fitted square up to the back bumper. Theres another person on here with them fitted.

    It wont take much effort to get them moved back and up a bit, and it will make a huge difference.

    i dont think i can move them as one of the ripped out of the mount so had to fabricate a new one but i cant really move them any further up as there close as it is. Ill take a pic of the back tomorrow to show you i think it looks further away because of the angle i took it. Im also trying to make a splitter in the middle of them both to make them more descreet.

    The anthracite ties in quite well with the Europa blue but I would suggest that the skirts need to be the same colour, along with some sort of similarly-painted splitter at the front. Darket rear lights would look better at the back too. I like where you are going with it though

    I have been thinking about doing skirts and im getting a front splitter Anthrasite aswell. I havent really thought about lights but i may see about getting them darker and ive got a good idea for fronts to go darker. Ive just bought some headlight protectors which im tinting so i can take them on and off when i like. Cheers for comments more welcome giving me some good ideas.
