Is that a genuine part? Front shut line shows a large gap?

The fitment isn't final. The gap is due to a dent in my front bumper that I just can't seem to remove. I'm guessing something has misshapen it during the course of its life as I noticed the front bumper had been painted previously. I'll attack it with a heat gun one day. It was from xenonz

I've taken my favourite styling from the f series and made it my own. If that offends people then I sincerely apologise

You have nothing to apologize for.

The car looks stunning.

Out of curiosity how much lighter is the Cs bonnet compared to the old one?

Quite a bit I had a look at the weight difference a while back I'm sure the cs bonnet is around 11kg where as the standard is somewhere closer to 25kg. I fitted it alone and can attest to the weight difference being pretty substantial.

I second that. To most, this car looks amazing and I bet it puts a smile on your face well done

I get that.... the M looks much better but isnt the most practical car - its loud, hopeless in wet/ cold (which lets face it is 80% of the time!)

You have created a car which suits you - and looks pretty cool too.

Whats next on the list?

I fancy some CS rear light on mine - but cant justify the 3k price tag!
