Debadging



I've removed the front and rear vRS badges to give a cleaner and more Stealthy look!
I just heated the adhesive with a hairdryer and peeled them off, rubbing off the residue with my thumb.
 

Sill Protectors



Standard Skoda sill protectors really add a nice finish I think.

Black B and C pillar trims



More details

Another Skoda part which I think transforms the looks of the car, especially when combined with tints
VAG part Nos:
Estate KGA 093 008
Saloon KGA 093 006
Milotec chrome boot trim

I always liked the look of the chrome strip along the boot on Audis, then I learned that Milotec did one for the Skoda.
I ordered mine through JBS

Window Tints

I had the windows tinted by The Tinter
Fronts are 50%, rear doors are 35%, rear windows are 20%
Percentages refer to the amount of light that gets into the car.

Milotec Lower Front Grilles


Before & after

I like the look of these metal mesh grilles, and they also provide more airflow as the standard ones are partly filled in.
I bought these second-hand from a Briskoda member

Front Aero Wipers



I've always loved the look of the new style aero wipers on Mk5 Golfs and other VAG cars. The wipers and arms are available as spares and just bolt on in place of the originals.
The original wipers take some getting off though!
They definitely work better than the originals and produce less wind noise.
I got mine from the dealer but they are also available from VAGParts.com

Honda S2000 Stubby Aerial


A small mod but I like it! Bought from Ebay UK for about 2 quid

Re-badged


I really liked the new vRS logos, so I stuck some back on the doors

I've been thinking of doing this for ages. I love the new look.

New Wheels

I needed four new tyres, so this was an ideal opportunity to get new wheels :)
After a lot of searching to find wheels in NZ that I liked and would fit my car I found these.
MAK XLR (Extra Light Racing)
They're 18"x8, 35mm offset running Dunlop Direzza 215/40R18 tyres.
The wheels weigh 8.7kg each!

LED Daytime Running Lights Mk2

I'm much happier with these ones!

New badges

Front badge is a discontinued genuine Skoda part and was a lucky 99p Ebay find

Front Mudflaps

I found that since fitting the 18x8" wheels I got a lot more mud sprayed up the front doors, so some front mudflaps were the answer.

Headlight Washers

A friend's dog modified my headlight washer for me:

I decided they'd look pretty cool in black

LED Daytime Running Lights

These have certainly split opinions and I'm still not 100% sure about them myself.


Wheel Badges


The Skoda logos in my wheel centres were starting to corrode so I got these from a Briskoda member
