I think you took that the wrong way, I just think that the car has a simple and clean look, and the wheels are kind of busy with the black and polished appearance. I think silver wheels would set your look off more.

Ok, I get it now. I actually love these wheels for the looks and performance. Back to the whole in person deal, they are far from blingy and are really not polished. The silver is a satin silver almost natural aluminum look and the dark part is actually dark grey and there is even a red stripe on the rim too.

Maybe the pictures dont do them justice, they just look a little blingy next to a more subtle car.


The front bumper is a F2 RS, its loosely based on the original mk1 RS bumper.

I kept the SVT rear and side moldings. F2 made a widebody version too, but it was more expensive, and I was only in the market for a front bumper. I love the looks of it, but its pretty low quality.

Widebody Kit:




Rear bumper:

So are the Euro bumpers shorter in length than ours too.

Yes, these were intended to fit over the stock crash-foam for US models, so they stick out much further.

I'd love to get some Euro bumpers and crash foam. I got Euro bumpers for my 1985 BMW M535i, and it made a hellofa difference in looks and reduced the weight of the car by over 120lbs.

I think all of us would love to have the euro bumpers lol. They just look better. The only US bumpers I ever really liked were the SVT and the SAP for the 05-07s
