Mrs got me a personalised plate and some wicked 4D plates for my birthday this year, Had to stick it on the motor!

 

Didn't do progress shots, I will from this point on! 

 

This is how the car currently looks, Recently painted the rear valence to a glossy black to try and match the paintwork & added the acrylic fins (Cheap way to get a semi sporty looking diffuser)

Some kind of suspension upgrade?

Hey MJ! Not sure yet, I've heard good things about storm developments, but can be a bit pricey! I've shopped around and there is a local tuner in Essex "AmD Tuning" which is reasonably priced too! IIRC it says around 15BHP boost for stage one, does that sound about right? 
 

do you have any recommendations?
