Hey guys, just wondering what you think of this little beauty i compiled from various posts on the site. Rims, rear bar and side skirts have been added to my precious EFII GLi. Pity i couldn't get the colour of the rear bar and side skirt to match closely enough. Anyway, let me know what you think. Cheers.

to be honest, the quad tips idea isn't really my ideal solution either... try and picture that with only a dual tip. Oh, and unfortunately mont, those aren't your wheels :wink: Very similar tho.

Here's the pic i got it from, sorry whoever it belongs to, i can't remember where i got the pic from. Can someone identify the brand/model for those rims? Anyway, back to the subject of the photochop, i assume everyone would be in agreement that adding a spoiler would ruin the look? I reckon the next thing that should be added to this car's appearance is a BA front bar (just like the one EFFalcon did)... agreed?

I agree that the quad exhausts look pretty hot, but when you think of the impracticality of it, the scales quickly tip. Gone are the days when we'd play around with lego cars and fit the most mean and huge "boosters" on the back and tell ourselves it made the car go faster... oh wait, isn't that what ricers do anyway? (snigger)

thats azza's car - CSA edge(?) in platinum, as EF-Mont_ghia said. i think azza was wanting to sell his, but had no interest! :P

as for the quads - due to the positioning of the fuel tanks, unfortunatley its not possible to get working without major modifications :(

No, azza did want to sell his, and there was interest, namely me, i just couldnt quite (a few hundred off!) get the cash together, and then came back to uni. And all of a sudden my cash went everywhere but where i wanted it to go! Not sure whether he still wants to get rid of them?

I like the photochop actually. Only thing i would do is:
Debadge the rear end and colour code the black strip and the mirrors.
I'd choose between those rims or BA Xr's :)
Looks good either way :)
