I found this front end http://media.photobucket.com/image/XR6% ... LD0044.jpg how hard would it be to change, i have a standard EF GLI. Its white i want to keep it white and go with a dark window tint whats the darkest you can go? 5%?. Im just a P plater in queensland. What would be a pricing on some lowered springs? i want to keep the car level, i dont want to go to low because i want to look into a body kit. what do you all think as a starter?

That is a XR series Typhoon front bar, they do look good,not sure how hard they are, check with suppliers or local panel shop. White and dark tint is always good, as for darkness, any tint guy can show you what is legal fronts are fussy but rears are usually darker, but dark is nice but best to play it safe on P's, ring Pedders etc for quotes, but i think if you go full body kit it has to be low, who wants a tractor with full kit? 8-)

they changed the law now. it has to be darkest legal all round. when i did mine 2 years ago i have 20% all round. then i had to re-tint my front windows 35%. then i got done again and now my rear door glass is 35% but the quarter windows are 20% and rear window is 20%. i'm just waiting to get done again

Hey thanks for your input. I was thinking about an exhaust. What would some pacemaker extractors and a 2.5" lukey muffler? How would that be and sound and what not
