My 4.8is

Taken on a trip to Edinburgh recently


Some different angles








They are MK Motorsports in staggered setup with 9x20 fronts and 10.5x20 rears.
I'm running 20mm spacers up front and 30mm rears to give the stance. They also help with the next upgrade...

The standard brakes aren't too bad:


But after a fresh coat of Ferrari Red I had these bad boys fitted:




8 pot fronts with 405mm floating discs:


6 pot rears with 380mm floating discs:


They really fill the alloys and combination of brakes and rims is spot on for me:






To say they stop well is a true understatement. They are phenomenal.
Hope you like.

Also running KW V3 Coilovers and a custom magnaflow exhaust a long with a whole bunch of other mods.

I do dread to think of the running total so far…lol

Quit e a few were very unsure when I said I going to colour code it all and do the running boards gloss black but the finished product is truly stunning. Certainly gets a lot of attention (for the right reasons I may add lol).

Dyam, those are lush. Would be interested to know how much buddy as I'm trying to source my 7th set of rims to clear the brakes and be lighter if poss. But needs to suit the X still.

Did look at OZ Superturismo Dakar but unsure on the look.
