Thankyou sir Thumb

Gloss black or the genuine Carbon stick on jobbies ?? Question

Anyone good at Photoshop Thumb

And colour code your chrome zits whilst you're at it like the one in the picture. Much tidier.

Boba I agree, I know we are thinking the same as someone who has only fitted half an aero kit in the picture but that's the yanks for you Floor but the black on black does look nice, now whether you buy the carbon and paint it body colour or go for the vinyl is personal choice and you need to be sure the two blacks don't look odd together. as I said further up the thread don't be tempted to buy the plastic/pu ones as they are quite thick and don't sit flush with the bodywork Thumb

From that angle I dont hate it but from side and behind shot it would look like it was missing something but thats just MyOp, it might work better on a fat bum car than a narrow bum with no rear spoiler as it would look a bit better balanced. There are plenty that like the aero/gt3 front but don't really like big wings on modern pork. Thumb

That picture is not inspiring me at all !!

It looks like a 996 conversion at best with the light covers you get to hide the Fried eggs to finish it off. I think they look better with a contrast.

Not sure these are for me now but thanks to you and CarreraMonkey for the input and pictures.

I do think they look better on light coloured cars for sure.

OK, so I've got 10 sets of these (in black) coming over. They gave me a small discount (free shipping) so we're looking at £55 a set inc. UK postage.

WildeJ and I are down for a set each. JohnH has one reserved if he wants it.

I'm thinking I'll give people on here first dibs and then sell the rest on ebay with a small mark up to cover 'administration costs'.

Give me a shout if you want a set.

Cheers

Thank you so much for reserving one for me (and thanks for the PM)

Much as I think they would look good on my car - I'm afraid I've been 'put-off' by the fitting video which was posted... Don't trust myself to successfully complete that process I'm afraid... Embarassed
