Well it's hard to say Chris. Everyone wants nice things, but not everyone can get them! :wink:

A lot of people think the wheels look good, but I bet they wouldn't have thought so if I'd have done a PS or something.

Like I keep saying, the "theme" as such with the car is to A) make it my own and not Rays (nevermind Jays lol) B) make it quite JDM looking C) make it DIFFERENT! I don't wanna see another car that looks anything like mine! Now ok there will be some but I mean overall when looking at all the bits I want it to be different, unique which hopefully also means it will have a lot of mods that no-one else in the UK has (already got a couple of those :wink:)

But yeah centre exit is looking good. :yes:

Well they'd both be pretty unique over here but I think the centre has the edge. Although there are loads of bargains on Apexi and even the normal Kaki (not short box).

Apex decided to sell them as BC because they are a more well known brand. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the antenna tip. Just ordered one on eBay.
I had a short one before, but it didn't fit nicely. So let's try thisone.

Coxy,

That Kaki off yahoo (japan) auctions?

I wouldnt go center section imo, cant see the point of spending £200 on a on the twin pipes to then spending some more to make it louder. Thats just me though :)

pritty much my original philosophy to mate. but also to do what i want to do regardless of others opinions (as im sure you do). also rate that what you doing, is always harder to buy a modded car and make it your own rather then have a blank canvas so good on yahs! got a few plans for the next year or so to keep me going. having a lil break atm coz of money and business. but alls good. car modding is like crack, it doesnt help that i get bored easily too lol!
If you can get the center exit do it imo. really would be the dogs plums. only thing is it isnt that loud, but if thats not a problem then there is no debating it!

I think there becomes a limit though where youre trying so hard to be different it becomes stupid. That lines very easy to cross if youre not carefull though!

The only reason I bought this car was for the very rare bits like yashio manifold, already having leds etc etc. So ive just got rid of the bits that arent so unique

Well todays mission was the new bumper. :)

With the help of my super steady handed, good friend BLiTZ today with have sorted out a new bumper. 8)

Might not be to everyone's taste but as you can imagine, that isn't the point. :p Has been liked by everyone that has seen it so far so perhaps you will too!

Started by taking the bumper off.

Took all the other bits and bobs off it too.

A few randoms of the situation.

First job was to fix a crack JDM style yo! :lol:

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/9chamberse/yaris/coxy/DSC01560.jpg[/img]

So, one bumper.

That has been cut? :blink:

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/9chamberse/yaris/coxy/DSC01557.jpg[/img]

ZOMFG?!?! :fear:

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/9chamberse/yaris/coxy/DSC01558.jpg[/img]

That's a big hole... :ph34r:

Job done! :thumbsup:

Loosely fitted to see how it looks.

More precision from Mr BLiTZ left us with a nice black crash bar and slam panel/bonnet catch support

So next job was to fit the mesh. Also meshed up the fogs to add a nice touch.

Job well and truly done! :D

I know your trying to be different but dunno if this really works, whole is pretty big for the size of the front of the car!
