Sounds good mate, be interested to see the finished result. Wanting to do something with mine but not sure what to do as my car is silver, so could colour code it or carbon wrap but not sure what would look best?

Any thoughts?

Carbon or Black would be good, Have a look at a silver ST on google and see what you think. I'm sure a member on here has a silver focus and a carbon lip... Looks pretty good

Haha! its only £25 and about half an hours work... ;)

I think this may be the last mod to the car for a long while....

I can hear a savings account for a deposit on a house calling....

If anyone was to want any parts carbon dipping instead of wrapped for a permanent OEM look finish I can offer it as a service.

See here for the kind of thing it would look like

Hard to take decent photos cause of lighting but they do look stunning in person.


Can also do silver carbon.

Thanks mate,
You need dry weather and a hair dryer for the Dmb badges, unless you bring it in to the house when changing the grill.
Why not colour code the top section of the grill that meets the slam panel inside the bonnet and the slam panel too.
Looks good imo.

And thanks for the comments on the splitter,
I bought it custom built by TrippleRcomposites in the uk, comes pre painted Gloss black with pre-drilled holes aswell as stainless steel fitting bolts.

As far as i can remember they are either 120 pounds or 120 euro but either way its worth every penny.

No prob mate,
I take it that you didnt grow up on a farm then ? lol
Ive gone out in hailstones to fit silvatec bulbs in the wing mirrors, and trial fitted the pivot voltage stabiliser kit in lashing rain.
Maybe im crazy or just love for the modifications lol im not sure, but i know mods need time and dedication so you are correct to wait until such time that you feel comfortable performing them.

The RS alloys look fantastic on the avator picture too.
