I did a simular thing to my first car (Chevrolet Kalos) or the Americans call aveo. I might see if I can dig any pictures out of it. The only problem I have is that I can only do cheep mods because buying a house is taking all my money and can't afford anything pricey but decent. It is nice seeing another UK member and your right, quite a distance.

The only picture of your car I can see is your profile picture. You got any up?

Nice car mate. What cosmetic mods you next doing? I'd love to get the black surround tail lights and evo bonnet but can only find carbon fibre bonnets but I'm not a fan of carbon fibre. Can't find a normal one.

I'll probably grab those bits at some point after Christmas, annoying thing for the bumper and the wing is that it'll probably cost more than the item cost to spray them. In terms of your bonnet situation, seeing as most companies either don't ship bonnets from the US to the UK, or just charge an insane amount to ship them, your best bet might be scouring ebay listings for breaker Evo Xs or Ralliarts and trying to get a hood from one of them. You might even get really lucky and find one in your colour for a good price, you never know really.

I like that rear diffuser apart from shipping is more then the actual product. I might even chat to mitsubishi to see how much they charge for a genuine one. Most of them I've seen as brokers have front end damage.

I don't mind so much about the shipping on the diffuser, I've become very used to paying more for shipping than the actual product value - still cheaper than I've been quoted by any UK companies offering similar things by quite a long way too. Painting it will be the biggest outlay though, for sure. I've considered going to my local parts guy at the Mitsubishi dealership to find out how much they charge for various swappable Evo bits too, never got round to it though. Might go today.

Most of it is still shippable though. Australia is good for parts at the moment, so long as they're not imported from the US to Australia, as the AU$ is weak at the moment. Canadian dollar is pretty poor against the pound too, which is good for us in the UK!
