    Talking Minor changes

    Had the car a couple of months now - made a couple of small changes:
    Before:

    After:

    Next step is to cover/change the wood effect trim
    Thinking of using the carbon fibre vinyl stuff as the aluminium or piano black is way too expensive

    Looking good dude!

    What about 'painting' the wood trim in a glossy (piano) black?? I did something similar in one of my old cars...

    Thanks. I have toyed with the idea of painting but I can't work out how the ashtray comes out.
    Plus its a company car so if I use the stick on stuff I can revert back to normal when I give it back (still got the chrome grill and black mirror housings).

    Yeah, watching them but they are for the 3 door. I will keep an eye on them though

    I quite like the green colour

    Thats a great example of the difference the black grill makes over the silver one.
    Well worth the 300 extra on the options list if you ask me! Looks great!
