Well, i thought i should do a thread for the things i've done to the car in the last 12 months, i'm not a big modifier but am pleased with how the car has turned out.

The first show i attended was Bimmerflex last year where the car was re-mapped by BW chiptune, sorry no pics of that, but it did make a difference to how the car drove, the most noticable being the increase in lower RPM torque.

The first thing i did was a refurb of the wheels, they were in a shocking state when the car was bought
From this


To this


FULL DETAILS HERE

Next change was the pedals



Then the number plate surrounds



After that came the HID's





Then came the upgrade for the tunes

From this



To this



FULL DETAILS HERE

All the discs were changed to EBC Turbo groves with green stuff pads and calipers painted.



And finally the lights.....Angels eyes for the front



And eagle eye LED's for the rear



And the final picture from the last meet




All have been fun doing (exception being the brakes that were done by a local indy)

Thanks for looking :thumbsup

Seb, Neal... Not to sure what to do next, I was planning carbon front splitters and rear diffuser, can't quite make my mind up, you can fill my head with ideas on Sunday :thumbsup
Daniel, you're right about the bulbs, I would have had some when I got the angel eyes and rear lights but they were out of stock.

Is your exhaust standard OEM?

Yes mate, standard exhaust but the flap in the 2nd pipe is secured open, seems to give it a better sound at lower revs.

Perhaps a new sports exhaust could be a future potential upgrade! ;):cool
