Re: Rake's Grande

I expected that, no reason really, I like to be different.
Countless times I've been sat in traffic with another Grande behind and the driver just looks puzzled.

Re: Rake's Grande

Cheers
Spoilers not stuck on yet lol, waiting for the roof to go black first,
As for the rear, definitely 40mm. Though I had 2 monster subs in their for about 8 months, heavy things they were, guessing they may have had some impact on the compression,
Parked on a slight hill there too
With the 225's on the back tho, get some rubbing over bumps with people in the back.

Re: Rake's Grande

Cheers, I did buy a "new" Red one, made it all gloss black, but didn't suit in my opinion,. Need to black the centre caps at some point too...
Guess i'm doing some things right at least....

Re: Rake's Grande

I'm not really a fan of that, did get a quote before on having a full Audi grill spliced into the bumper. Similar look as the linea grill then, but decided against,
Maybe doing it like a Mitsubishi, straight to the bottom maybe, got a lot of vinyl in the garage so might have a play with that idea too....
