A lot of creativity going on in this forum. I like it! Where did you get the induction heat shield from? :)

Nice job! Think maybe I'd like wing mirrors in blue also... othrwise top notch!
they match the light surrounds though. I would go for a high gloss black on light surrounds and wing mirrors to match the rear diffuser. Again thats just my opinion, looks top notch though :thumbs:

Who did the work for you?

Looks like it needs to be lowered abit now to fill out the archs.

Bent it into shape and painted. The got the rubber edging of a old tool box of mine.
Only issues is after a long blast, it does get hot and flimsy, so may try and find a thicker sheet.

My local bodyshop painted and fittes the kit. (Know all the guys there) ;) and i did the rest. I know what you mean about the arches but dont want to screw up the adaptive suspension. And would only want to lower it by 20mm max but there no spings out there that size.

Looks good - but get yourself a smart aluminium tax disc holder and ditch the white thing!

lowered + spacers. apart from that its well smart mate fair play
Defo gonna look into spacers and springs soon. Only issue is that that front splitter sits a inch lower than the orginal bumper. So if i lowered it by another 30mm i risk scuffing the bottom.

Already got a black ally tax disc holder but wernt to keen...
Steering wheel was custom made, ordered on ebay from some guy in poland. Did a great job.
But would proberbly cheap to use a uk company, send them ur wheel to be refubished.

Really nice.
Good luck with keeping your wheels pristine. Mine are starting to corrode. I am waiting to hear back from Alfa about a warrantee claim.
Ahh yes the dreaded laqure peeling an corrosion. Gonna try to wipe them down one a week and superguard them every month. Proberbly wont make a difference though.... Only time will tell

What type of steering wheel did you fit and i love the colour and mods you have done, is the induction kit noisy under normal conditions i have a bmc panel filter in my qv you can hear the turbo chatter but you dont get to much roar which can be a bit over powering i was thinking about a gsr induction kit

Cheers, its a reshaped alfa mito wheel with new materials.
Induction kit is proper loud underload! Can barely here the exhaust over it, which will not do. So im debating fitting a straigh though pipe.
