Also, put your clears back on. Those crappy smoked corners disrupt the flow and cleanliness of the car.

I disagree, I love that low and drivable look.

I really don't like the clear lenses.

Rather have amber set up as DRL's than the clears lol

32's run the route!
The 5's look cool but the trey deuces are multifaceted they're: mean, clean, simple, oem (like the 5's) yet gangster, and almost purist-like imo. I'm a fan of the "k.i.s.s. Principle"

Some Meg's super degreaser. A varied selection of different brushes. Then some mer bumper and plastic trim dressing to give it a shine.

However. I dropped one. Now it's sat inside the under tray somewhere. Hope it be ok as haven't got time a pull car apart at moment.

Both wheels look really great. If you're dead set on no clears I'd def go amber, not feeling the smoked.

So this evening I spent an hour in the back of car having a good rub.

Left side cleaned. Right side not. 50/50 comparison



Before



After



Product used today was gliptone leather cleaner and a tooth brush. Using a brush gets into all the grains of the leather. I found a toothbrush required less product as it seemed to lather up a bit better.

And some gunk

Hi. Fronts are 17x8

Rears 17x9

Offset is 20 or something like that can't exactly remember.

I might try some 9js on the front
