Definitely mate, Dave's a top bloke - Plus his place is less than 10 miles from me!

Not been up to much lately, apart from driving the car and enjoying the sunshine... But I did receive my Hyper Zero 1 alloys and Leggdura racing nuts from SumoPower, I was going to go for black but luckily for me Michelle offered me a good deal on the bronze as they were in stock - Initially I was just going to powder coat them black, but thought I’d put them on just to see how they looked.

I’m pretty happy with the way it looks now - But I may change the colour... The fitment is good on the front, but the rear is touching slightly so I’ll be raising the suspension 10mm or so. The only other issue is the centre caps won’t fit over the hub nuts, I’ll probably source some deeper ones later just to tidy it up.

Ok, so I ended up raising it by 3mm on the rear - Then I rolled the rear arches to accommodate the extra rubber... Once this was complete I had a 4 wheel alignment done, the right front and the left rear did need a slight adjustment... The car now handles like a dream!

But I just had to get the wheels powder coated Black, I also found some centre caps on eBay to tidy it up

Yeah the 9 bumper looks so much better imo, the guys that did the paintwork used a standard non metallic gloss black - All the plastic trims, rear wing, door handles and lower bumper have been painted in it... I felt it'd break the rear end up a bit, I guess it's just a personal preference thing

Lovely looking car.

Have you got a link to those centre caps please? I have the same wheels and the same issue with no caps, yours look really good

The wrap itself was about 2 to 2.5k Simon - I'm sorry I can't be more specific as I had paintwork done, calipers refurbished, window tinting and the interior wrapped... So a package deal was done

Thank you, the original paintwork was fading - So I thought I'd give the vinyl a go

Cheers Dan - Yeah sure, these were the only ones I could find at the time... I had to get the center pieces separately, I got an alloy style and a gloss black set - I got both as I wasn't sure which ones I'd use
