Thanks  :smiley:

Had the front end PPF’d by Russ@Midlands Car Care (but wouldn’t recommend him anymore unfortunately)

Nicely protected for the daily commute.









Remap and dash cam and that’s it I recon lol

Looking really good Raj - I can never tell where these PPF start and finish to be honest but the extra protection is a good idea.

Thanks buddy. Yeah that’s a good thing though as it does pretty much go right to the edge of the panels to provide maximum coverage/protection and not appear to be obvious.

I do a lot of motorway miles etc so glad of the protection now.

The rear diffuser is the genuine Akra one but unsure on the front one. It’s not an Akra although it does have the Akra decals.

So I’ve never been a fan of black wheels and of course I could just get the OZ’s refurbed a different colour (maybe anthracite or equivalent) but until I decide I ended up buying the 18” BBS SR’s off Andy here.

So what’s people’s thoughts?

I’m kind of torn as think the 19” OZ’s do suit the rest of the car more with the other mods but have to admit I’m liking the 18” BBS’s too.



Maybe the Rays sort of colour if I refurb them:









They certainly sit more flush with the arches too.

I really like this it’s tidy and not ott. The newer wheels look smart too. Love the diffuser. Is the exhaust the catback one? Does it come with that diffuser? I dread to think how much it was? :evil:

Thanks. Yeah I like to think it’s not crazy OTT but definitely different.

The Akra is the complete system and includes the Akra downpipe/sports CAT. The diffuser is actually a separate part you have to purchase :shocked:

So after having the small rust spot sorted that had been there before I bought the car I gave her in to Ryan Details to get the ceramic coat applied to the drivers door and PPF the B pillars as the black gloss swirls too easily.

Did a superb job and definitely my new go to for anything of this nature as TBH I wouldn’t recommend Midland Car Care any more.
