Good pics - epecially from a camera phone [:|].

I does look so very mean from most angles, you have done a great job styling wise.

Just a couple of questions/comments:

Is their a reason you havent changed the rear wiper, IMO it sticks out like a sore thumb against the rest of the car's sleek styling.

Have you thought about replacing the LED's in the angel eyes, as there is a a vast colour output difference between the rings and the projectors.

Looking good, my only comments would be to loose the bumper reflectors, lower it and do something with the sides. Other than that [Y]

i never really saw the point in changing the rear blade, as its not that cheap either IMO

i though about doing LEDs in white or blue but i have heard from others that they tend to blow themselves and constantly need replacing. also they leave spots of light rater than the flow of light in a circle.

i was worried about the colour difference aswell, but it really works for me, i like it a lot [:)]

the reflectors are there to keep it road legal and its safer for if its parked on the street in the dark.

it is lowered 40mm and 15mm spacers on rear, you should have seen it before the spacers [:cool:] i really wish it was lower at the rear though. but its plenty impractically low enogh at the front lol

and the sides - i could do with more chunky skirts, but they will do for now [:p]

thank you very much

HIDs are 6000k, so not too blue, but a nice hint of blue [:p] but blooming bright if you look right at them, possibly my best mods, i love turning them on and going driving in the nights these days even lol

and they are not genuine r32 bumpers, didnt fit perfect, but i spent several hours filing bits off and adding screws and things to hold it correct, and my time and effort was well worth it as it saved me about ?1000 on genuine bumpers. it also made me more proud of the result as i made it fit correct with my own blood sweat and tears (if you know what i mean lol)

thanks for the comments [:D]

Andy [:)]

So is the front splitter an exact fit or did you need to make any adjustments?

Iv got the original kit which has a slight lip to it so i guess im going to have to remove that right?

And did you get it sprayed?

Cheers

basically you cant go wrong

in breif:

line up the middle of the splitted and stretch it round to the position you want it

the stick some screws in

line up the sides as you want, more screws

cut the excess plastic off the splitter where it is too long

stand back and admire your work [:p]

not had it sprayed, would be dull imo as it is there so when you catch it on the floor or a speed bump or something it can be marked and chiped and you wont notice it. if it was sprayed it would begin to look a mess once it was chipped and knocked

hope taht helps [:)]
