small update got some carbon fribre bumpers on her/him now, only resting on though in the photo need to bolted it on tommorow properly, got em cheap on e-bay. dialed down the front coilovers down to make the car lowered by 4 inch in total on the front allthough it doesnt seem look like 4 to be honest, i would have thought it would been lower, oh well, also im thinking of sanding down those chrome strips going down the side of the car & bonnet & oh and the handles and lid lock and bonnet handle and respraying them gloss black or something, really i want the trim gone and smoothed but i just cant afford that. i think there ruining my semi german look thing here.
