You had my opening the thread in exitement and anticipation,  and i was dissapointed - for me, "tuning" means modifiing a car for better performance

I also thought we were going to have a mad scientist moment and the way to double our horsepower for 50p and some double sided tape :huh:

Ah back to my R&D lab

It is possible to upgrade,
You require a mk2.5 bonnet
Mk2.5 side wing fenders,
Mk2.5 front bumper
Mk2.5 sub frame plastic panel
And of course the headlights, of which I can do you a deal on a chrome set with bulbs from my 2010

I think what J etc is trying to say is by the time you get all the parts fit them and respray them, it might cost as much as buying a 2010 model, you would also have to inform you insurance, it may go up - if you sold the car you would  have to tell the buyer or technically, it could be fraud,  and all that hassle and all you would have done is make it look like a "regular" 2010 model - like thousands of others -

 

Fair enough if you are intending to do an ST225 replica

Just do what you want and what you think is right - everyone else is going to have different opinions - just don't mention wind deflectors :lol:  

 

Modifying shold be a personal thing to reflect your ideas/ tastes - i would not worry too much what others think  - its what you think that counts on your car

 

To me that would be money /  time wasted you could be fitting an EGR blanking plate or saving for a remap!   :lol:  

 

Perhaps we should call little cosmetic changes "personlalizations" rather than "modifications"
