    The back bumper is standard though and not sure what kit it is to get the matching back bumper, even if I got a back one I'd just want a small lip.

    As for lowering I'm thinking 40mm.

    Thanks Ishaaq. Problem with detailing is that parts of the body are faded, (doors mainly I think). I'm not sure whether parts of the car have been sprayed to revive them or whether parts have just faded as they were like this when I got the car. Don't know whether to try a colour restorer or re-spray it?

    if they are bad bad mate then get the car "mopped", any good detailers will do it or even your local body sprayers can do it, dont just get the doors sprayed as the rest of the car will terrible and you will end up with 2 shiney red doors and the rest will still be faded/aged paintwork.

    it needs a machine polish with a good colour restorer polish to bring it back nice, at worst... option 1, will cost you maybe £50 or so but will get her looking like new. ish!!

    Wow thanks for the tip!

    So if I go to a sprayer and ask for it mopped they will know what I'm talking about? Or shall I call it something else?
