If you want to :) Tyres ideally should be 205/40/17 so as not to put your speedo out by too much.

£1,000-£1,500 for bodykit + alloys + spraying depending on how much you can get the parts for.
Plus the increase in insurance for an 18 year old ;)

It would probably be cheaper to just sell your car and buy Nath's

Ring up your insurance company first and see how much it would be for any mods you've planned before buying the parts.
Then buy my car ;)

Of course, you need to tell them about every change you make to the car (other than consumables, tyres, bulbs etc)

Just to clarify - are you openly encouraging someone to commit insurance fraud on a public forum?
Just checking... ;)

Not really a very good comment to make on a public forum. Will be your problem if and when you have a crash and your insurance wont pay out. Don't come crying to us if this happens.
