    Got the car back this morning from a local garage who was colour coding my bumpers (inc sill strips) Very pleased with the result, totally changed the car. Put the matt finish mirrors and s-line badges on. what do you think

    you want my honest opinion, I dont think it looks that great to be honest...



















    ....













    ....It looks too great!!!:icon_thumright:. The transformation is spot on mate, done well.
    Some 25% tints will finish it off.
    Im loving the avants even more now.

    Looks spot on! I still can't work out why the cars didn't come out of the factory looking more like that! I think yours being red helps as well - i don't think my Ming Blue beasty would look anywhere near as good - well done that man! :salute:
