Next is probably a change of wheels, I love the expressions but they are impossible to keep clean in winter

Will be on the look out for some gloss black slabs at the end of the month, I have been thinking of refurbishing the expressions though.. Arden blue lip with a black centre (like how jordancorsab has done his)

Need a boot spoiler as well

Finally found a spoiler for sale in arden blue, guy wants 60 for it and I'll have to arrange my own courier not sure if that's expensive or not would it cost more or less to get the spoiler I already have sprayed ?

pic i took today of car in driveway, car looks small.. on the look out for some 110 or 120 mm rear springs if anyones selling some

Next will be the spoiler - shouldnt be too long as ones on the way.. hopefully it arrives tomorrow

image by Jsn1995, on Flickr

Once the spoiler is im going to take adjusters out the back and front adjusted to match

after that i think a wheel change for winter, too hard to keep these wheels clean

the options i'm thinking of..

Cav slabs (gloss black)
Cesaros (white)
speedline alessio's (silver)
Sport 3 spokes (silver)

not 100% sure yet thinking alessio's atm

As Scott said!

You can't beat speedlines, will look so much better with different wheels!

Not 100% sure how to fit it, bought some strong glue that's advertised to glue the sort of thing on but not sure if I should drill it as well don't want it coming off

What he said^^ I tiger sealed my old one, no bolts at all, taped it in place for 24 hours and was fine.

I didn't even have that plastic thing you've got on the boot in the last pic
