I am thinking of putting the full aero kit on my new 05 S

Has anyone got pictures of the back view. I want to compare the difference to my current S

Thanks

If you do a search of the members galleries, you can find it...

Or, go to miniusa, configure an S, check on the rear view, and add the aerokit--then you flip back and forth between the two looks. Personally I don' t think the aerokit adds much for the S; I'll probably get it though when I get mine--but if it was a cost issue, it's not much bang for the buck, compared to the front and sides.

In my gallery there's one pic of the rear. Not sure if the '05 Aero is any different.

Note: the bit that looks like cheesgrater holes is just a sticker, no actual holes

I have set up a gallery, but there's no button to view it with under my posts.

I Can't see how to enable this???

Hi pic of rear Aerokit bumper
Bodykit looks excellent, as does the whole car :)

Wish I'd gone with CR! :eek:

Would it be too rude to ask how much it cost to get the whole kit fitted?

£1300 for complete Aerokit fitted by dealer before we collected car, and thanks we love the effect the Aerokit gives

harveyjoseph,

Any trouble getting the paint to match the body? The photos look great - those side skirts make a huge difference in the look of the car - in my opinion.

I'm just worried about the painters getting the color right. Who did the work for you? How much did just the side skirts cost?

Sorry, lots of questions. One more thing. The plastic wheel arches have a texture to them, did they sand them down, or just paint over them?

Thanks in advance!

You can get the kit pre-painted in limited colors now in the states. List price is about 1700 bucks.

Cost me about $1500 including the Aero skirts and JCW sill plates. They sanede them down and heat treated them. My work was done by sublime restoration. They do great work.
