emm, dont know and dont know...i like tungsten grey but there are alot of 5s in tht colour, white is nice wen its clean nd matched with the rite colour codin bt it cn look very plain, red wud be nice aswell tho, r a blue, i really dnt no wat i wanna do...i wnt to keep the kit standardish, c the plan is to build a good quick engine, 180bhp or more, altho more is harder work so a good intercooler will be good to have so im gonna need a front bumper thats not over the top but can fit a good intercooler, any ideas would be nice :D  open to opinions

im not sure if the oe bodykits goin on, im considerin a sleeper, but im not sure yet. boot lid is rusted, bit under both rear windows and a small hole towards the rear of the sill (if any1 is willing to send a boot to ireland please let me know, will make me very happy). Returned from work today with a nice surprise, subbys where in working last week and left more than half a roll of fibreglass, single skinned fibrglass bonet for extra lightness hahahahahahaha
