    Suprised more people dont like the number plate idea
    To be honest LiLo, I'd forget about the styling for the time being as you've done a great job so far.

    Concentrate on whether or not you're going to do the M conversion and come back to this at a later date

    Im with you on this one Lilo...

    Personal taste I know its not everyones thing but I had the same idea in my head lol. Have probably seen it on another car (VW scene) too !

    If its agressive front you want, there is always the eyebrow look.

    Or the M sport bumper ofcourse - thats the daddy IMO!

    As for numberplate, I was toying with a Bike numberplate on the front?

    Where can you get those "SHADOW PLATE" thingies - like the front strip without the numberplat surround? I saw it on a few E46 coupes.

    I really need to get pics of my car with the plate off now ive got the black grills done to show you, Ive got a bike too so I can whip the plate off of that . The pics I added are abit dodgy but I was just playing about at the time so not anything to be taken too seriously

    Ill dig you out some pictures,
    its your car at the end of the day, I think the car looks fine as it is, but the modded look doesnt look bad at all! I wouldnt fork out tons to acheive that look though..

    I think the "bonnet extensions" are abit MaxPower.. but then again they dont look too bad. I dont know if I'd actually want it on my car. Then again, all the new cars seem to have an aggressively styled front so I dont think it would look so out of place.

    Lilo i know what you mean about wanting to keep standard and just do subtle mods, i'm exactly the same, i didn't want any euro style aftermarket bumpers etc..

    what M conversion are you thinking of doing?? M sport bodykit?? never seen your colour of car with that kit! would look mint though guaranteed!!

    There we go LiLo, Seems you want to do it and were surprised at the negative votes so I've doctored the POLL so that it reads how you want it to mate

    Next time you have your heart set on something mate it's probably not wise to ask for opinions

    Nah mate not the body kit, my car already has the M Aerodynamics package so i dont want to mess with the body really. Only little things.

    The 'M Conversion' that A20 RYM is talking about is dropping an E46 M3 and running gear into my compact

    Hoping to have this done by october next year

    Yeah i agree.. If you get the M3 conversion that would be outstanding.. But as for mods wise i think your cars perfect. In my opinion the number plate bit will over cook it. But at the end of the day its down to you and what you want for the comps
