    I caught my front spoiler again today, and put another bloody crack in it. I decided im gonna re-fit the standard front bumper for everyday use as i dont want to ruin the Alpina spoiler. As they are only a 10 min job to swap, ill refit it for shows/meets. I really like the OEM+ look and dont want to do the any body mods.
    BUT i have pretty much decided to slam it on coilovers as i think it could do with losing another inch and my front shocks are past there best..
    I cant justify £200 on the M-Tech front shocks when a full set of hottuning coilvers are cheaper...
    Thinking of maybe some BBS splits or CSL reps later on this year...
    Any thoughts guys??

    Here is how she looks at the moment..

    Steve you could always learn and adapt your driving

    May as well get used to it if you are thinking about slamming it

    Mate, the rest of the car is fine, just that front spoiler. I scraped it on the ramps coming out of the multi story in Aylesbury the other day..
    I dont mind knocking a standard bumper occasionaly...
