All you need to do is get a pair of these...
Halogen to LED adaptors, facelift lights will fit

Thinking of replacing the CSL wheels with something new. Dont know if i'll do it now, or wait for the next season. Been thinking of BBS LM replicas, but since they are everywhere now, their starting to get boring.
Got a few rims in mind, but a little unsure how they look on the car.




Any photoshop guys who want to edit these on my car?
Any other suggestions that would look cool?

Mini update. So, Amber turn signals in front are on, orange bulbs in the original parklights and tinted amber vinyl on turnsignals on the rear.

What do you guys think? (Sorry for the shuitty mobile pictures, cracked camera)

Back look terrible, but like someone else said, the OEM facelift LED tail lights will fit.

Front looks great, rear orange looks dirty and faded. Over all your cars really nice. Have you upgraded to ts8.5 yet?

OEM's are probably comming soon, but at the moment the prior is to repaint the car before the winter to prevent the rust from spreading.
Then i'll probably get the OEM's and upgrade to TS2+ 8,5 PSI.

Update :o! CSL front lip is finaly on! Crappy fitment tho, especially when both the front bumper and the lip is from the same dealer. But after some tweeking, its on, not perfect. But the bad fitment isn't visible if youre not looking for it.


Just some fast pics from yesterday, more with better quality coming soon.

Finally done! The car is now manual, Thanks to neil1138's DIY!
Was alot to be done since the car was SMG, all the hydrolics had to be removed from the tranny to be able to take it of the car... took us a whole day just to get the tranny of the car -.- But I finally got my car back yesterday after coding it.
Using a Gripforce Stage4 6 puck clutch with reinforced pressure plate,
so im set for 500HP and 450 ft.lbs.

Any advice on some badass rims? Going aggressive next season.
Not going square. Near to non camber, dont like it and too much is illegal too.

I was really hoping that Varrstoen ES6 would fit non M, but 19x9.5 ET20 front - 19x11 ET25 rear seems to be a bit much Going to roll the fenders when I get it painted in the winter, but I dont know if I want to roll out the outer edges on the fenders.

Wide rear rims are a pluss since I would still like to have a good width on the rear tires, but still having stretch.

With the varrstoen wheels you will definitely need stretch and a lot of camber.
