    Default spot the mods :)

    After a bunch of help from you all on another thread "how do i tell if its a direct", I've come up with a cunning plan.

    For those of you who are just catching up basically I saw a veccy I was v. tempted to buy however it turned out not to be the direct 2.2 when the dealer said it was and it was riddled with fag burns etc etc.. got the price down to £6500 but still not happy. The plan now is to buy a non modded 2.2 direct with low milage and add the mods myself I'm wanting to make it to the same spec as the one I've seen so I did a sneaky recon mission onto the forecourt and took some photos.

    Just wondering if you could help me with the following:

    1) what alloys are on this veccy (18s or 19s and which make + cost) ?
    2) What is the likely cost of lowering it as seen in the photo?
    3) what is the name of the colour of the car?
    4) what is the likely tint cost and do the fronts look legal to you? (Also looks like the front windscreen has been done a little?)
    5) Is everything else standard ? (obviously apart from the badge)

    Any help you could give would be muchly appriciated!

    PS: I'm now out for the rest of the evening so any replies wont be answered straight away

    Anyway here's the photos

    Out of all those questions all i can answer is the colour is ultra blue. Is it just me or the angle of the photo, but the right hand exhaust pipe looks a bit out of place, not sticking out enough? Was the twin exit standard? I didn't think the non-direct cars had twin.

    nice alloys, look like 18"s, and agree that exhaust looks way out on the right side

    Alloys look like irmscher stilas, but I maybe wrong. Most likely 18''.
    Front window tints are now effectively illegal as they are supposed to let at least
    80% light through which means a max 30% tint and this is what most manufacturers
    tint their windows to at the factrory.
    Other than the aftermarket twin exhaust, alloys and tints, it looks like a standard sri.

    the ride height does look slightly lower than standard.

    the front windows do look road legal, it's only the back ones that look like they've had any tint, and the front windscreen doesn't look like it's been done either - which it should never ever be!

    looks like 18" alloys not sure what make...
    Lowering springs are about £100 PI Spring, or
    Irmsher £500 ish lowering kit springs and shocks
    Ultra blue colour
    Tints approx £220 ish rear and rear sides, and fronts do look legal
    irmsher badge on rear around £7.00

    and like david 173 said , the exhaust looks a bit off. ,but could be a dodgy rubber or miss fitted after market

    £220 seems a bit on the expensive side for tints from the b-pillar back.
