I think the grey suits this shape the most.
Thanks mate, yes it does! Although being metallic i was hoping for more shine when clean? Booked in for a 2 stage polish next month which will hopefully make a difference.

Do it yourself, the gear is cheap.

Pick a forced rotation machine and a good all in one polish such as black fire.

I generally detail my cars but getting a few deep scratches removed so detailer might as well do the entire car plus callipers.

New tyres bought! Didn't want to make the same mistake as I did with my fn2 in having budgets for over 2 years!

Gone with Michelin pilot sport 4s tyres. Got a nice 15% emergency services discount so £760 fitted.

Fresh clean, colour is definitely starting to look better after it's second wash.

Polished metal metallic touch up paint arrived today. Will be getting my scratch and little stonechips sorted when detailed next month.

Early morning drive into London on new year's day. Love driving this car! Done nearly 900 miles since I bought it and can't wait for new tyres to be fitted next week.

Very quick engine bay clean, tbh it wasn't really dirty to begin with but why not!

Surfex hd used and then dressed with carpro perl.

Also noticed a small stonechip dent on my bonnet which I've been quoted £60 to sort so will get that sorted before it's machine polish.

New tyres fitted this week. Went for Michelin pilot sport 4s tyres and went for a different size to oem too.

Slightly bigger sidewall to protect the alloys on British roads and fill the arches better too.

Last two pictures are the old tyres which were oem.

You gone 255 width too I see. Not seem that done. Seen 245/35/20 done before.

Yes mate, a few have had these fitted and still over an inch space in the arches.
So far they feel great

Cool. Yeah thought you would be alright as a lot of the USA owners have wider tyres with a higher profile on their 18 inch rims.
. Think it might be someone on here that fitted 245/35/20 thinking about it too.
