    very nice mate, although it looks a tad higher at the front than the back currently!

    I'd drop the front another 10-15mm and then it'd look awesome!

    Spacers wise, on those wheels you might find it rubs if you go any more than 10mm rear and 5mm front.

    have you got an uprated ARB on the front already mate? if not you might find it starts knocking if you go much lower

    Yeah man. Looks good, Mine'll look more like that when i actually have some money.

    Just wondering tho about the pro of getting rid of the rear wiper? Isn't it kind of detremental to motorway driving or alike in the wet?

    Oh for sure. it looks miles better, i use mine everytime i use the freaking car. Perhaps i'm just a little over zealous with the use of the wiper.

    Thought that third pic had a central-exitting oval exhaust for a sec there, just scrolling down... actually kind of like that idea.

    Front looks a little higher than the rear, but looks nice anyway. Wouldn't have blacked the rear rings though (just my opinion).

    The quad LED ones mate.Looks really nice now.just need to uprate the dip and main bean bulbs to suit.Spacers should come in next day or so,so i will drop it then

    Do you think the LCR front splitter will suit it tho?.was thinking of getting one.

    I personally ain't too keen on the lcr splitter, if you drop the front a little once you get the spacers i don't think you'll need it. You could always try one on, for 20 you might aswell see what it looks like

    Quite definately all of the above, in order I'd say an exhaust to get some more noise, followed by the S3 brakes, then the clutch and flywheel, and finally the FMIC before ako3s and another remap!

    I'd stay away from discrete tail pipes, especially considering how low it is.

    found when I had a milltek discrete back box, lowered just 50mm it made the car really boomy, and it got noticably worse when I loaded weight into the back of the car as the tailpipes got closer to the ground.....
