    gives the car a much more agressive look on the front without being in your face OTT. Good work :o.k:

    Looks good. :icon_thumright:

    Makes the car look a little 'front-heavy' but I'm sure that will be more balanced once the rest of the kits on.

    What skirts are you going for or you gonna opt for the sline blades. Mines got the blades but want the quattro skirts, but the front bumper does make an impact.

    im going for the vortex sides as this will ensure that both the front and sides are both the same depth(if that makes sence)
    with regards to the rear bumper im thinking of the votex again as itll be the same depth. im not sure whether the s-line rear is just the standard depth in which case it wont match the front+sides.
    pav- i may go for the door blades aswell but dont want it looking too modifyed so ill see how it looks after the rest of the kit is on

    Yes the Sline rear wont even it out imo so if like you say you dont hate the rear votex then go for it. The votex kit was one of the choices before I found my rieger.
    Its amazing how the bodykits fill up whats missing if you get what I mean. Definately makes the car look more planted!!
