Nice!
Yet to take good pics of the car but hope to rectify that next week!

So far, the only mods done are replacing all the internal lights with white LEDS (so much better and brighter).
On the list is to replace the gear knob for a chrome/steel one, add chrome external handles (ebay job!) and then perhaps look at the rear light clusters. Either replace the bulbs with LED bulbs except the indicators or by clear lens ones that the new shape cmax has.

One thing I have done is give the standard ford alloys a dam good scrub with wonder wheels has they were caked in dust. So much better looking now.

I know what you mean about the halfords look

I was more thinking about the clear rear lights like this:


but have LED bulbs rather than normal bulbs like this:


But I will wait and see until I see them in real life!http://www.ultraleds.co.uk/images/38020r.jpg

I have had some upgraded headlight bulbs both dippred & main beam from them and are very good.
