Polished Metal 59 Type S GT 2.2

Here's my car, had it since January so nearly a year now, still chuffed with it.
Had the rear disks and pads changed under warranty last week as one of the callipers was sticking, and the clutch is starting to slip, but still have another years warranty so we will see how it goes!

I've done a few things which make a big difference, like Type r alloys, Type r Spoiler and a skunk2 gear knob.
All interior and exterior lights changed for white led's which look great.

Any suggestions and tips welcome!

It's looking good. Subtle styling mods make a real difference and the colour is great.

Nice looking car mate, I actually couldn't decide between this colour grey and nhb when I bought mine. In the end got the nhb, as the grey one I saw had beige leather which I dont think went very well...

Anyway I think you could put a slight shade of tints on the windows, which will look really cool !!

Looking good mate!

Changing your springs would only mean that you wouldn't be covered for those springs and they might say your not covered for shocks etc, I have my stock CTR springs sitting that I'm going to sell if your interested pm me

It's done just a shade over 23k so barely run in lol. Thanks for all the kind comments, I think next on the list is the folding wing mirror mod and some speakers. Will changing front components make a difference?
