Looks good mate, like the paintjob on it ;)
Personally, I'd lose the black bumper moulds. I think it'd clean it up a bit better.
Most people will tell you a V8 is much more worthwhile doing, but do you want to spend money on an engine AND mods, or just mods?

Well i like the black trolley strips on the sides, it neatly separates the colours, but i agree with you about the tape around the bumper. Although i dunno whether to take it off cause the paint would probably be bad underneath. If i got an 8 i'd cam it before it went in, but yeah i would need new exhaust etc.

Looks really good! Its worth going a v8 once you are sick of the v6 or once you blow up a v6!
