Steering wheel is on the wrong side.

But damn I love the contrast of the carbon fiber and the white, especially on the side skirts. Beautiful car, congrats!

What paint finish did you go for the front splitter and rear diffuser?

The car was an ex demo so already had them fitted as they are. They are not painted and are matte black. I'm considering getting the rear section painted white with the middle diffuser in black but I will probably get some carbon interior bits first.

Cheers. I'll get some pics on soon. Yeah I'm getting them put on at the dealer. I got 3 quotes, Williams 285, Sytner 148 and Halliwell Jones 157. I went with the last one because it was nearer. There are 2 options available black with a red outline or black with a silver/grey outline.

You put your money on the exterior M Performance parts first.

Are you doing the interior as well? For me, I did the interior with the M Performance upgrades where I can actual see and touch the money spent. Though I do sit outside from time to time just looking at my car

The cars an ex demonstrator so had all the exterior parts fitted at the dealers cost. I got a great deal I'll probably get the MP exhaust next then the interior parts. I've got an AFE intake on its way which should make things a bit louder.

So, they got you with the looks Sex sells!

Exhaust and Intake is a great add on for sure. My first additions were the aFe and JB4 for the cheap power gains. The carbon/alcantara interior parts really make the car feel special when behind the wheel. That is where I left it so far. Really don't want to drop any more money on parts as it is great just as is right now. Just some winter tires come end of season as my last major purchase for it. Just need to go find more reasons to take it out as my passion for motorcycle riding this time of year is number 1.

I've seen some shots of your interior it looks great, the parts are really expensive in the UK though so it may take me a while to get them unless anyone knows somewhere doing discounts?

With the carbon fiber on the exterior it would look really clean if you could get the diffuser and front splitter done in carbon to match. Do you have access to a Hydro Dipping company?



Or you can do it yourself with a kit, http://www.mydipkit.com/index.html

I agree it would be a big improvement. I'd never seen this process before it's pretty cool. I know there's a place nearby that does carbon wraps, I'm toying with the idea of getting the roof and rails done as long as it matches exactly the carbon already on the car.

Hydro dipping is becoming more popular here. Many different patterns are being used on just about anything plastic or metal.

Just got the car back after having the stripes fitted. Here's some photos, I'm very happy with the results.
