    errr, welly how did you secure your engine back in? :think:

    fran i like the colour coded insert on yours, its a slightly different shape on the facelift isnt it, mines pre and doesnt have that dip in it, just flat

    think i may go with carbon wrapping mine, if it looks cack just rip it off again

    sorry matey, not liking the silver at all, the bumper looks loads bigger and more subtle, just like an everyday hatchback rather than a subtle sports car

    hmmmmm undecided about that to be honest, nice idea but mesh puts me off it, mesh reminds me of corsas with mahoosive flycatcher bumpers smeshed to the max lol

    not sure what else you could do with it though, s3 centre exit exhaust, or twin exit?

    exactly what i was thinking vauxhall corsa lol

    i think spraying them similar to oem would look good but colour coding doesn't look nice IMO to much of one colour
    but if you like it do it, its your car

    Your car looks awesome Kev, was just thinking, the lighter grey looks sweet so what if your had the black bit of the Aero 18's sprayed the same grey? Big risk but just a mad thought lol

    there off already mate, but the plan is to do more smothing then that though :ninja:
    think im leaving the wheels untill they need a referb could'nt bring my self to risking ruining a nice set of rims, but have been thinking of doing the whole wheel antracite when referb is needed, there a really quality wheel though so cant see them needing referb any time soon :(
