Bought this from a Nutz member last January. Still in its winter bed (garage) but will be all fresh and ready for 1st May
Currently has a set of Enkei's fitted from a Toyota something or other (well, the caps are Toyota!), but lust after a set of Rota RB's when I have the cash. Lowered on a set of Gaz adjustables;

Get it out the garage now man & enjoy!
LOL! I wish I could, a long Easter weekend coming up in Copenhagen and I need to Tax and MOT my daily runner when I get back first.

Looking good
i think a front splitter will look good.
Been thinking that myself, but my driveway is a pig and I need to work out what clearance I have first (reason I cant lower the 5 anymore, I had to raise it when I bought it)

haha, looks great anyhow. It might be alright as the front is higher than the sides (which i think shows in your picture) Maybe it wont lower the front by mmuch but just bring it too the same level as the sides?

Looks frigging good! Exactly what i needed to see, as i would like in the future, a set of similar wheels!

looks good dude!! I think an oem lip would set it off really nicely!

Thanks! Once she's back out of hibernation I will be getting the measuring tape out to see what lip I can get away with

To be honest I dont know exactly what they are

They were on the car when I bought her and they're off a Toyota, I think an MR2. They're 15" Enkei's and have been recoated entirely black, at some point they had a red lip as a scratch on them revealed.

I need some new Enkei cente caps to be honest so I can dump the Totota ones.

eBay is your friend: clicky

I got a set for my OZ Chronos & they're spot on
For reference, my wheels are Enkei Racing S or RS apparently.

Thanks for the link, but the existing caps are slightly rounded, so I dont think these stickers would last too long, I'd need flat centre caps. I have just started a thread in the wheels section.

Car looks excellent mate, I really like that, nice one


If it was mine I wouldn't worry about adding the front lip. I had a MK1 years ago which looked about the same ride height as yours but with an extra lip. Bloody thing was a pain in the arse, catching everything in sight. Here's a pic of my old beastie:



Looking at your pics, the only thing I would do is de-tango the side repeaters with clear or smoked ones, everything else is perfect

Hmmm......food for thought. Nice 5!

Cheers! Done the side repeaters on other cars, just never got round to it on the 5......yet.
