The M4 style spoiler also went on this afternoon, the last of the cosmetic updates I have planned. I was a bit apprehensive doing the actual fitting but in the end it was fine, just needed to take your time.

Excuse the poor photos, but spot the difference. Three for the front and two for the rear (the spoiler I've already given so that doesn't count).





I think Grey may be in need of some spacers next.
What are those bits sticking up above your windscreen?
Sunroof??

On some colours, like MG, the CF isn't so noticeable anyway so may as well go for sunroof if you like it.

I had some roof tiles hit my C63 back in the storms of Feb 2014 resulting in new windscreen and repair to bonnet. I really really don't want that happening with a CF roof. So paranoid now I end up parking well away from houses, trees, scaffolding, sign posts,...

It is very noticeable when you lean your face against it and stroke it! I constantly have to prevent myself doing so when I see one in person!

So, took a drive up to Rossiters this morning, thanks Lorcan for your hospitality

Lunch time and Grey is returned, sitting on new ACS springs and 10mm spacers.





Did exactly as described - 10-15mm lower at the back, 25-30mm lower at the front. Tempted to try some 12mm spacers...

The stance is perfect though, I'm still pondering my next mod and I think I will be going for the lowered springs and spacers, I was wary of speed bumps but should be fine

Looks good. Is it just aesthetic, or do the springs make any difference to the handling?

It was mainly asthetics for me, the gap from the arch to the top of the tyre was winding me up.

The acs springs look so good, your car now looks spot on. Would be interested in seeing some more photos with the spacers as I cannot decide to go spacers/springs or just springs
