    I know, the rear is awful and offensive! :puke2:

    My wheels were like that when I bought the car, I think the going rate it around £50 per wheel.

    Mine are a Subaru Grey :o.k:

    These are the photoshops I done to decide if i wanted to do the black grill.

    Here is the poll and at the moment the black grill alone just beats the all black.

    And here are the pictures of the real wrap, i am over the moon with the look and finish.
    The wrap was very easy to do. the hardest part would be to get the bumper off if you
    didn't know what you was doing. Luckily my friend is a body work expert and is the person
    who fitted the bumper. :salute:

    verry nice not paying £200 to re do my winters tho. you shoud be able to find the bumper quite easy. i have just sold mine for £100 with the sline diff just been repained in matt black. if you can find one go for the s3 diff

    Right, weirdest thing happened, while reversin the car, the car starting shaking and stalled upon switching it back on,the clutch feels really funny. When u slowly take it up to the bit the rev goes down to zero and jaults same with the reverse gear. The cars 11mnths old, can it be faulty???

    Next up was front tyres. After reading such good reviews on here about Falkens in general I went for these:

    From what a gather they are not as good as the FK452's but I am happy with them for the price.
    In all honesty the Continental Sport contact 3's they replaced felt to be a better tyre.

    I may go for those or the FK452's next time :yum:
