Hey all, i'm trying to think of something tasteful to personalise my BA.
Trouble is, i realy can't think of anything tasteful that will go with it's colour.
Has anyone seen anything or has any ideas of what will go with ice mint? (other than full respray)

Some shadow chrome 18's or 19's with a dish, lower it and get some 20% tint. If that fails, which I'm sure it wouldn't, get an extractors back system CAI and a flash and just leave all the people who say it looks s**t at the lights. The DOHC 4.0 seems to love to be able to breath.

that figures.
I plan a 2.5 inch cat back system with two dump pipes either side.
I want it to look good, but a sleeper.

i was thinking about getting some sort of striping on it but i just don't know what colour will complement the greenish silver. Mind you, i love the colour, but it needs personalising

Just to give you an idea, i have put 18' on my BA Ghia, and Tinted the windows, other than that its cosmetic (Chrome rear view mirrors ect.) it has come up real well.
Interior wise i painted the ICC and matching parts a liquid silver and a metallic maroon to cover all the plastic woodgrain, and shifter, added a MOMO steering wheel, xr pedles, and i have a GPS and DVD system going in when i get a chance.

Hope that gave you some ideas!!

Thanx mate...

i think the exhaust looks like its meant to be there...

i have seen alot of BA XT's with exhausts which hang out under the rear bar... i had the inserts cut out of my rear bar to sleek up the look and make it look part of the car rather than an add on... It came up a treat
