Also had a bit of a play with some carbon fibre vinyl wrap on the bonnet lip, not the best job a bit of a practice really, will do it again when I get more time but I think I like it?! :)

Aw haw Sweet!

Looks fantastic mate,

I personally would colour code the bonnet lip instead but apart from that its spot on,

Those RS rims look really good too,

Rarely do the camber arm bolts want to budge anyway its a specialist job to do them properly the standard ford eibach springs would have done the job surely

A few people reported bad tyre wear after fitting the ford recommended eibah lowering springs,

Aswell as others who used different branded lowering springs,

Since the rear camber adjustment bolts were half the price of one tyre, most people now purchase (including myself)

Rather than to chance two tyres wearing out quicker than expected,

Thanks aldoo, yes mate drives lovely, really does stick to the road like s**t to a blanket and the ride isn't to much different. ;)

+1 Lenny

Artscot, the camber bolts were no trouble to fit and I had all 4 wheels set up professionally to, I'd rather spend £30 on the bolts than £120 quid every few months on new rear tyres!!!!

And the 30mm lowering makes the car stand out from the rest!!!

Grills are gonna look sweet Gav,

Take care when removing the bottom grill, small section pulls around the edge,

One hand pushing firm on the bumper,

While the other hand pulls the grill

Working your way around,

All fitted, they really make a difference to the look of the front.

Pics aren't great but you get the idea.

Only trouble now is that it makes the fog surrounds stand out, still not sure whether to gloss black them or colour code?!?

What do you people's think?

Already thinking what's next, got to do something with the fog surrounds and bonnet lip and seriously looking at led rear lights.

Gav, very nice mate - how much did the Heko's cost?

my foglight trims have been colour coded - do it mate, i think yours would look good.
