    Thanks for posting those pics rushmere.

    I've tried to find a source for these items online, but the only site I found was Japanese. It was quite shocking to add up the purchase cost of all these bits of kit. In excess of £2500.:eek::eek::eek:
    Even the boot spoiler was an extra. These only became standard on the 1.3litre Copens.

    I know the body kit in particular won't be to everyones taste but, as much as I hate after-market body kits, I find this one looks OK.
    Maybe it's because it's understated and matches the body shape well, to my eyes anyway.

    The little chrome trims lift the otherwise bland dash just a little. The door sill trims are actually very classy looking. They remind me of older Jaguar style embellishments.

    What do people think? I have thick skin - fire away.

    Thanks. Glad someone else likes it.:D

    The entire grill is also a modification. If you look closely you'll see that it doesn't have the "ridges" that are on a standard Copen grill.

    I'll try to find the website where I saw all this stuff for sale before.

    The body kit is surprisingly subtle. Had to check our car for reference.

    Looks the business Machinehead :D

    Thanks, Glad you like it. I'm not a lover of modified cars but I find these mods are subtle enough to be hardly noticed. Which is a good thing.

    It was a good deal. I was quoted up to a couple of hundred pounds more by other dealers.:)
