    Personally, I prefer the above style over plain aluminium sheets as these would compliment bonnet vents

    I have seen a YouTube video of someone rolling fenders on her BMW and that was the last time I typed ‘rolling fenders’ in YouTube search. I then cleared my watch history to make sure I don’t get any more ‘recommendations’ let alone search one




    This my friend is way above my skill level. I am sure @Chop. would’ve thought about it if not done already.

    Haha I like the driving over the scaffold pole solution :grimacing:

    No much happening on the car front for me, Iv actually been having thoughts of moving on from the s4 so that's kind of halted the spending for now

    I had a kit on my old Astra gte 5 door ( was a cdi with a red top in it ) rear arches right over the rear doors, my solution at the time, take off handles and lock rear doors :tearsofjoy:

    My old man had the model down from the exige and it was a beast felt more like a go cart than a car, much fun to drive but not graceful to get in and out off

    VX220 is the poor mans Lotus :)
    I love the look of em & the you can use an Eaton supercharger on the 2.2 & get 240-250HP safely on stock internals (car weighs around 85oKG)
    The chassis is a Lotus Elise but with a slightly longer & wider wheel base :)

    I think the 2.2 is the better bet & add a supercharger.
    From reading it has better weight distribution than the Turbo lump

    Nice addition ( or swop ) to the stable there XP Sure don’t see many VX220 around on the road !

    Funny how we develop these hankerings for a car - mine in a similar vein is a Renault Sport Spider ( along with an NSU TT1200 for something for the classic side of the garage !!! ) One day.........

    I have often wondered why they don't move them further from the engine on tuned cars as they seem to have a habit of melting cats on dual pulley... They look the business though! Are you going to keep the standard exhaust but with these down pipes on now rather than getting another full system?
