    Finally got chance to Give my motor a good Clean. Updated pics as promised.
    Still a couple of bits a Need to sort, one being Im not happy with the mesh, need some Closer knit style (which Im in the process of looking for) and I forgot to matt black the red bits you can see through the mesh which was done when I originally had the bottom half colour coded before the rieger....:ermm: .

    Apart from that and the crappy cam making it look a little wrong in colour, Comments welcome.Cheers:icon_thumright:

    I like the front but the holes in the back bumper look too big for me.
    I would have it like this.Its a bit rough but you get the idea.

    Yes that's what it needs.

    It looks fantastic though. The filled in rear bumper pic' just looks wrong.

    I think you should paint the rear of the silencers matt black. It will help with the look. You might not even need thicker mesh then because you won't be able to see into the mesh and behind the bumper. (If you know what I mean)

    I painted my Millteks and it changed the whole look of the back end. It made the tailpipes stand out and helped to create the illusion that the pipes were better aligned too...........

    yeah, do some matt blacking behind the bumper and get some rs4 type mesh, it will look really good. like the overall look of the bodykit, seems to fit well. good work!

    Trying to find some better mesh now, apart from the mesh thing, It'll do me to a tee.

    Hopefully I can stop spending on it now:think:

    Halfords high temp matt black paint.

    Make sure you clean the silencers and degrease them well, key them up with some P320 grit paper and you're done!

    Been on for a year and no probs at all. The ends don't really get that hot TBH.

    You could also just use some hammerite to paint them, lots of people in the VW world are using it in their engine bays mate.

    Your car is really making me want one!!!!!!
