    mate you can go any way you want with modifying, as for euro styling i am pretty sure i saw a compact done at a show once, with euroing you need to go low, have wide deep dish wheels with stretch tyres, minimalistic to the exterior but nice flowing curves, but is all upto yourself as to how you want your car to look there are no set rules just 1 BIG RULE TASTEFUL AND TACT hope this helps.

    just whats been said here
    go as low as you can on wide wheels or wheels from a completely different car altogether with as much stretch as you can get away with
    oem bodykits, lights etc (m3 front with a sport rear?) and lots of smoothing
    (the probably wont be liked) but try reading some vw magazines to get an idea of the style
    subtle mods is the key

    was never a fan of smoothed door handles or badges, but those rims are sweet
