    Default VXR Replica

    Spent most the day on here searching the forums for ideas, now thinking about going down the VXR replica route....

    What exterior mods would I need for this?

    Chrome fog surrounds
    Headlight washers
    Rear defuser
    Duel exhaust
    Lowering springs


    Anything I've missed?



    Edit: as it stands now......

    Thanks chewy, Mines the Sri nav xp with same front bumper as in your last picture...

    So basically need the rear defuser and pipes, honeycomb grilles and chrome fog surrounds, I've got the black V grille so should be pretty easy to achieve

    and bottom splitter if you want to make it a look a like, or you will just have an xp2 bumper with vxr grills, will still look smart tho

    Dont forget VXR wheels, your snowies dont have enough spokes as are an inch too big, or the 19" blade style VXR upgrade rim.

    It's not so much a front splitter as much as the bottom section of the bumper in this case. I wouldn't worry too much about this part if it were me as most people don't notice the subtle difference unless the two cars were side by side. Especially with the money involved. It will still look slick at the end so good luck.
