    Default If you had my car.... how would you style it?

    Im in a real puzzle over how to style my car. I want to keep the 'posh' theme going of the factory car so everything will need to complement that. Other than that im totally stumped. Do i Add irmscher bits, colour code it, just lower it and put some wheels on? 18 or 19? rear spoiler??

    both of you have more or less gone the same route. I tried Gary's DTM spoiler on mine last night and it looked very much out of place on a non sri so it will have to be the wing type as you guys say. (im thinking of holding out for a VXR copy to appear on the market)

    Sri springs ive got. (which reminds me I owe someone some cash)

    19's i think is the way to go i agree. I was thinking of something with dark grey spokes and polished alloy rim.

    Colour coding trim, I was going to do this but the people ive spoke to said they wouldnt bother (it will just flake off) or it will be expensive as a special typ eof paint needs to be used

    Andy, if the proper plastic (flexible) primer is used it shouldn't flake off. I've had plastic bits painted for a couple of years now (and no flaking). Shouldn't be too expensive either....

    You could always leave the exterior as it is and concentrate under the bonnet.

    Performance Manifold
    Straight through exhaust
    Induction Kit
    Increase Turbo Pressure
    Performance Dump Valve
    Diagnostix UK Digi Viper Box

    Must be close to 220bhp by then (Proper street Q car)

    well it definetly needs the sri springs fitting as its far too scary to drive at speed. I honestly feel like its going to understeer all the time. Its a world apart from my when i had my sri. The ironic thing is, despite lots of body roll, it still crashes over bumps

    The chrome trim ive a few plans for, mainly pinched from the ideas you guys have come up with. (the beauty of a one make forum!)

    i like the idea of a Q car, but to be honest, even with just a tuningbox on it suprises a few people who take it for an overwieght rep car

    Me too, I don't always win though

    Took on an Elise (Don't ask me why!) the other day, we both roared away, I kept level with him a bit, then he looked over, I could see his expression "WTF, that vecs still there" Then he booted it & shot off like a rocket!!

    Gave him a scare though for a fleeting second anyway LOL

    Lost out to a Vec B 2.5 as well, not too much in it though, until we reached about 40 when he was pulling away dramatically.

    Bring on the tuning box, I can't wait
