    god thats nice, quite possibly the nicest 8P ive seen!

    i much prefer the ones with the split front grille to the newer style with the huge grille.

    looks much more classy to me!

    I haven't noticed anything, but I wasn't paying attention before ;)

    On trip 2 after 37hours of driving i have 7,2 l/100km, which is damn good if you ask me -> 40.3543 uk miles per gallon

    to the first notch on the petrol guage i would usually have got 200 odd miles - now i usually get between 150-170miles

    overall im getting between 50-75miles less per tank when i didnt have the 19s on - i also have a sound system in the car which is adding to the weight

    what else have you planned?

    i think matt mirrors would look well on the black car as well as the votex side skirts! :D

    Nothing more planned really... New tyres next year maybe...

    I don't fancy side skirts, and like the original mirrors...

    Very nice.

    Is it me, or do the pics look squashed?

    It's you :)

    Must admit 19s make a huge difference, very tempting...

    i love my 19s but you do notice an economy drop :(

    they do suit the car very well and fill the arches nicely especially when lowered

    i am only lowered 25mm on FK coilovers and its pretty low looking - not one scobe but the turning circle is **** and does rub slightly on full lock going left
