    Few pictures of my t5

    Bought as a standard car and decided to put a couple of R bits on, just after some feedback really as i cant decide if it looks right or not, to me something looks out of place but cant seem to work out what it is :s.





    Cheers.

    Titans dont suit the dark colour, And it needs roof rails.

    But this isn't to say it doesn't look good, Looks awesome mate seriously nice car you have there.

    Funnly enough i took the roof rails off, yeah i think its the wheels also, i do prefer volans but because its an early 850 i wanted to stick with early r wheels.

    I'd change the grill mate, the rest looks spot on I reckon... I don't like chrome I'm afraid.

    Yeah them volans on yours look much better. Do you remember what tyre size you had? I've got 50 profile on these and thinking thats possibly not helping.

    Looks ace mate, I'd be more than happy with that. I masked off the slash on my grill and sprayed it black but you have to redo it often due to stonechips

    very nice, i think if the wheels were a bit more brighter and changed the grill ( maybe mesh ) it would set the car off even more!

    I had 205 50's on my R years ago and they seemed to look right hense why i went for 50s again on this, there only winter tyres so i will need to change shortly anyway. So do most people run 215 45's then? i want some tyre there as i dont like the really skinny look but the ones in your picture look spot on.

    Cheers mate. Seems alot of people are mentioning the grill, i may buy another one and paint it up, i went for the black grill look on my R briefly but changed back. I also had that problem with stonechips, have you tried hammrite? Does that make a difference, i just used cheap paint from a local car shop.

    yes 215 is the norm tho 205 45 is the size volvo use..the 215s rub slightly on full lock but slighty wider for traction/grip and protect your alloy slightly better as for your grill wire wool or sand it mask it primer first then spray with satin black any auto shop will have these
