I don\'t think the colour is too bad but the wheels need shooting, and the way they put in the FMIC isn\'t exactly to my taste either.

But that\'s one big target for stones and other things like high speed bird\'s.
 
I\'ve always hated the big open FMIC look - much prefer a less obvious mounting ! :cool

I realise that but it looks like it\'s been bolted on as an afterthought - you\'d hope they\'d make a bit more effort to blend it in...

Yeah it looks out of place. plus whats the point of mounting the reg plate on it? thats gonna restrict airflow. Oh and I don\'t care for the wheels either.
I don\'t need to upgrade my stock turbo to beat your ass!

If it wasn\'t for the paintjob, I\'d suggest it was a case of function over form.
