Very happy with this, such a subtle mod but looks so much better especially on the Carbon Flash colour paint.

Congrats on passing your test

Car looks good, mods sound good :) the front grills on these look so good not sure why vauxhall didn't do this to all cars

Isn't it factory tinted to quite dark already though? Limo tints on a black car will look stunning I reckon! I love the black edition, everyone is always hating on the wheels but I personally love em!

Thanks man, feels sooo good to drive on my own! :D

I agree with you about the grill! I think it looks so much better than the standard chrome grill

Thanks for your interest, keep it coming :)

Your right there is some tint it but hardly dark I'd say between 50-35% hence going for the 5% really black it out :p I think it will look awesome!

Same opinion there on the alloys, at first I thought I didn't like them preferred the all black LE alloys but turns out they've grown on me and I really like them now! :p

Thanks, have worked it now :D

You gonna de-wiper ? That would make the back end even more tidy
Yes will be de-wipering it soon, against my girlfriends grace's lol. She thinks it's impractical, and stupid for me to do it. Says "only reason i'm doing it is because it looks cool" well yeah! lol :thumbs:

If you are dewipering the rear may I suggest you look up a product called gtechniq g1 you will find videos etc on YouTube ;)
Ok I'll look it up. What kind of product is it? Cheers for the advice :)

I think it does look a lot better when de-Wipered, gives it that even smoother look :) I'm still going to do it :p
