I think I will take you advice on this one get it on the car with all the ome grills on then see how it looks.
Just need to get a cost for the paint work now as there is no way I can paint this in my back garden lol

An update today
I have now tiger sealed the splitter to the bumper ready for Monday to drop of to the body shop
So far this has been a project in its self fitting it.
After fixing the fitment issues and having to make cuts in the bumper to fix the splitter on I think now it's looking pretty good.
I no with the cost I could have gone down the msport route but I wanted the car to look different
Cost so far for this part of the project.
£80.00 for the bumper
£150.00 for the splitter
£10.00 for the tiger seal
£10.00 for clamps
£150.00 for the paint shop to paint it.

I am so looking forward to getting this on had to slow my self down as I was starting to rush the job :) but it has been pain staking trying to get the fit right.
I still see things that I could have made look better but that is now up to the body shop to do there job and sort any bits I did not get.
Fingers crossed as I have not used this body shop before but there work looked good for what I can see

Looks good! Some Eibach springs will drop it 20-30mm and close the arch gap and possibly improve the ride?

Yes mate next on the list is springs and 19"alloys that's the problem with modding when you change one thing it then leads on to more lol.
So next on the list is
1) springs.
2) alloys.
3) msport rear bumper.
4) msport side skirts.
5) rear window spoiler maybe.
6) red or orange leather interior.
7) new headlights.
