you buy it and you can do whatever you want to it but id go with a carbon spoiler with the sides painted blue as the carbon bits are 'hi-lights' rather than bonnet.

Just working out the wording for the ad now :(

This is great! I'm looking into buying one in the next few weeks and might print this off and take it with me!

Cheers dude!

I'm new for DC5, knowing that DC5 year 2001 fix with 15" rims. May I know can I go for 17" rims as like DC5 year 2002 ?
What would be the different experience in driving ? Please have your advice..

All DC5s have 17" wheels (as standard). DC2s have 15"/16".

Nice guide really good stuff, however don't agree on the 7/10mph speedo difference when going for wider tires that's ridiculous Im sorry. On my previous car I went from 175 to 205 and only saw 2-3 mph difference at best

Have you tried running a narrower tyre with smaller wall on the DC5 then sweetheart?

Or are you suggesting that my, and other peoples experiences when running a 205-215/40 tyre are talking shit?

Bearing in mind that when running a 215/45, the speedo will generally run at around 5mph more than real world gps speed (unless your really lucky and yours has been calibrated by a pro) from factory, pending on speed?

I think I have found one more difference on pre-Facelift models.
The lower end of the rear bumper mounts with clips on early cars. On later ones there's bolts instead :)

Soundproofing inside a pillars (a pathetic amount) as I've just found out.

Door locks have extra security, sheet metal gaurds behind the mechanism to stop them being brute forced.

Strut brace redesigned too.
