Changes to My Red Type R

Heres my first pic of car after the wheels were refurbed and painted black.

Got the bonnet carbon wrapped yesterday but the price they wanted for the mirrors was expensive so I fitted some NHB covers from the local Honda dealer this morning.

I also fitted the sticker on rear window which also arrived yesterday.

The black stripe which is on both sides of the car was already on the car when I bought it but I was thinkiong of removing it..whats people opinion?

Hmmm, not sure about the stripe, think i would be losing it, at the same time the mudflaps need to go too or be colour coded red. Wheels are looking good though and i do like a carbon bonnet on a milano R

Yeah they are.

I like it, agree that the stripe should go along with the mudflaps though.

Keep the stripe
Which cf wrap did u have put on? I want to do mine however I want the gloss finish...I don't think the matte one like that would suit nhb, especially when the car is polished up!
