    A bit random... but I'm considering the effort vs result factor - thoughts? Only a subtle change (it's the front bar if anyone missed it)

    Too much of a wank?

    That actually looks pretty good IMO, gives it a whole new look without being over the top.

    Thanks guys. I'm a big fan of subtle changes. Individual is good.

    Kind of reminiscent of the E1 Clubby front end, which i think is the best E series front end by far :)

    yeah you're right.. gives the illusion of a bit more 'space' though. Dunno.

    I dunno if I'm a fan or not.
    But its definately effective.

    Is it worth doing the grille reccess as well?

    Is there provisions to repeat the scheme on the sideskirts and rear bar?
    I've never paid much attention.

    look at getting it done in vinyl by a pro, means you can revert if you dont like it

    Not really.. also a concern of mine. Kinda needs to be carried on throughout the rest of the car.

    Not sure about the ute, but there is on my sedan, recessed portion starts in line with B pillar, and tapers out to about 2 inches wide by the wheel arch, and continues around the bumper the same.

    Nah, I like that better.
    Looks complete.

    Tinsnips, could you do the front of my car if I put a pic up?

    Yeah it's the same on the ute.. but if you spray the bottom black, with no colour underneath, it will just disappear (effectively) and make the side of the car look short.. same reason why I left the bottom lip of the front bar green. hmmmmm
