    Default Turning an SRi into a VXR request

    Currently got a 1.9 (150) SRi in star silver (proper silver ) . Got 19'' VXR wheels but want the whole VXR look (twin VXR exhausts, lowered suspension, front grill, fogs etc...)

    Can anyone point me to a thread or sites were to get all the parts an work done for as cheap as possible? Is there a thread with some pics were someone has done a succesfull job? thanks.

    Theres been a few cars that a certain member has transformed into 100% VXR reps, even a re-spray as they were obviously not arden blue. Cant remember his name but im sure someone will.

    In my opinion, only genuine parts will do, just easier to work with.

    As above - if you want to do it then do it right. It won't be cheap though by any stretch of the imgination, and you may be better off simply buying a VXR...
