nice galaxy grey maybe the 5dr gp kit as it looks like it has a spoiler on it already and a set of 18s blade or storm alloys

Hi and welcome...

My first 8th Gen was Galaxy Grey.. Nice colour :)

I've just had my brake pads and disks replaced, and was thinking about painting the callipers. They look manky and rusty now, but not sure what colour to do them in... I was thinking black, but yours look good in that colour! Got me thinking ;)

Is it an EX?

Yeah does have the spolier but was thinking of getting the type r spolier as its a little bigger.

And yeah I deffinetly want to drop the height just looks a little to high even though when I was underneath it the plastic underneath is already scratched, so have any of you lowered it and had problems?

I want to put some drilled and grooved discs on but got told by someone that they squeak so loudly untill they get warm, but dont know if this is true?

The picture of the caliper is actually red but looks a little orange, but if you want to do it then its a halfords tin of caliper paint for around £12 and get twice as much as you ever need even with 3 coats.

it costs £60 with P&P and it does fit but very tightly so expect to get lots of cut knuckles.

Nice Galaxy Grey! One of the best colours or maybe i'm just biased.
If you do upgrade to a CTR spoiler i would be interested in your old one.

Cheers, I am well happy with them.
