    Ok , new wheels wnet on , aerospeed 18 x 8's, new exhaust , and projektzwo bodykit. Needs a touch more colour coding still , but you guys get the idea! Tell me what you think! Future plans = smoothing the door handles and rub strips , coilovers, badgeless grille.

    Looking good, always liked the projectzwo kit as it is very subtle compared to most. What exhaust did you fit then, just a backbox or full system?

    Nice work, smooth lines at the front. Like Gammba nice subtle lines. Be intresting to see what the badgeless grille is like, is that the Kamei one or the S3Tuning one you looking at?

    I think the S3 rear spoiler would complete it nicely!

    yeah - I defo agree! as for waiting for the facelift lights, I've been waiting for ages anyway! a group buy makes it all a bit cheaper for us. I think with a spoiler and the rear lights it will broaden the car out to make it look a lot menacing with the subtle lines of the bodykit. It will also make it look a lot more updated and fresher. That kit is fab! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Also agree about the spoiler.
    I used to have a 1.8T with no spoiler, wished I had. More so now I have one.

    I'll keep my eye out for you.

    I'm not usually a fan of Lexus rear lights, but these look not too bad... and I'm loving the dual twin exhausts!

    Have to agree with you there Imola. I'm not usually a fan either but those look OK.
    Nice job JImbo, looking Swweeeeet! A quick word of warning about smoothing door handles. Mate of mine is a fireman and had a recent shout to a car that had hit a tree. Bloke was unconcious when they got there and car was on fire. Unfortunately the poor lad got more badly burned than he had too. just because of the few extra seconds to open the doors. I appreciate it's a big if, but you never know. What you've done so far looks great though!

    hiya
    looking good, but just wondering what offset the wheels are as they seem to sit in quite a bit from the arches? doubt it would cause any real problems but i know with my coilovers the inside of the wheel is very close to the strut.
