No mate I got it from Ross sport, it's a rexspeed one, fitted to the bumper spot on but none of the wholes where drilled to fit the screws. Pretty much other than getting a new front mount intercooler as mine as broken off at the bottom but yeah I'm not doing anything else to the car other than these last bits

Little while since I updated this thread as the car has been a bit of a pain in the backside the last month. I ended up having all the clutch etc fitted and new wheels and carbon bits done. A few days later I noticed a smell of transmission oil Again so I had a look and low and behold the prop seal was leaking again so I had to take the car back to the garage. Glenn had the car for nearly a month trying to work out why it kept leaking as he took all the transfer box out again to check all the seals etc and replaced the prop seal again but for it still to leak.

The last resort other than changing the prop was to change the rear transfer housing for another he had, on removal he found that mine was cracked and in turn was causing the leak

This was hidden under the dust cover, I hope this helps anyone else that has this annoying leak, I've had the car back about 4 days now and it's one dry under there now so I'm super happy that we finally found it.

Now because I haven't had the car since I just hadn't managed to get any recent photos with my new wheels on the car but I decided to go out Saturday and get some for the weather to turn and absolutely chuck it down so I waited till night time and went to a multi-storey car park as finally got some up to date pictures of the car.

I hope you like my choice and how the car looks, I know it's not much off standard looking but it's cost a hell of lot of money to get it to this stage.

Hope you all like and I'll keep this updated with further bits I'll be doing to the car

Looks lovely on those new wheels, good choice! I've gone "similar", but with Evo X Enkei's but they look quite alike!

Thank you, was a little worried as when I fitted them they didn't look to different but once I have the car a clean and saw them in the daylight I loved the look of them on the car. Yeah them wheels are very nice to and really suit the older Evos
