    Default Making an Elite look more sporty

    I have to book the car in for some paintwork due to a low level post that I couldn't see on a garage forecourt

    Whilst it's getting paint to the front wing and the bumper, is there anything else I can change to give the Elite a sportier look?

    Front bumper spoiler?

    Rear diffuser?

    Side skirts?

    I was considering the complete JDL kit but not too sure, does anyone have one and was it easy to fit?

    If you have other suggestions they'll be most welcome.

    I'm also planning a 40mm drop on the ride height sometime.

    Dark style lights and visible pipes. Is it Vectra or Signum?

    It's a Vectra

    I like my silver rear lights as my car is star silver and I also have the silver/clear middle brake light.

    I would quite like a pair of black headlights though

    What parts did you use to convert your rear bumper?

    When I asked on here previously a few said that I had to change the entire bumper to make an Elite into twin exit but surely it is only the rear lower part and the addition of the centre diffuser to the otherwise same bumper?

    Rear bumper from a sri v6cdti which had the double bumper exhaust trim left in

    Two tail pipes from the dealer for a v6 cdti.

    Not cheap but after selling removed parts wasn't to bad

    when you fitted the sri bumper did you have to change the backing bar aswell or does it fit straight onto the elite, this is exactly what i want to do ;-0
