Mechanical:

New aluminium radiator

New oil cooler

Wheels/Suspension/Brakes:

New Rotiform TMB Concave wheels - 18x8.5/18x11

New Gaz dampers (front)

Hi-Spec 6/4 Pot calipers powder coated white

Body/paint:

...a surprise, but you can gleam a lot from the pics.

Looks goods, like a modern take on the classic white S1. Clean uncluttered lines.

I think the satin finish really helps accentuate and enhance the lines. Thanks!

cool, wheels not for me though.

They're definitely a statement. Some days they're not for me either. Is it the color or the style that bothers you more?

i think the colour and possibly the wheel design, the offset 5 spokes are a nice design but for me do not do the car and its new paint scheme justice. I thought the black wheels looked better, but thats just my opinion.

its If you like it thats the main thing.

It's Oogies turn to boogie
