It's great in the flesh when clean. Has a deep cherry colour with a hint of orange when the sun hits it.

Yeah post processing does give it that kind of metallic white sheen!

Just thought I’d share how different Melbourne Red can look depending on light...

Almost like a mates 458...

Ok, maybe not!

Was about to post a request for pics of white cars OEM+ modded, but yours ticks the exact box i was looking for - looks great.

Where did you get the rear spoiler lip?

Any other mods done to it? looks like the maxton front splitter?

Thanks mate, I'm happy with it.

Rear spoiler lip is Maxton designs, as is the front lip.

I have the BMW M performance side blades fitted, but you can't really see them in the photo.

It also has the "Motech Stance" - Eibach springs, front 12mm and rear 15mm spacers.

Thanks! Yep, that's my GSi that I am very fond of. I bought it in 2004 with 8000miles. Now done 165,000 and still on the original clutch and turbo. Took it to Country Sport just before Christmas for a health check and it has only lost 3 bhp in 14 years. How's that for mechanical sympathy!

Awesome, i think ill have to see the side blades in the flesh on a car before committing to them, though maxton parts seem quite reasonably priced.

Any issues with the splitter, eibachs and speedbumps?
