I build this car to my standards and looks that i like.  I can understand that you have a different taste.  So i like to make clear that it is possible to change certain things to the car like the wheel setup or a different bodykit. For example a 16V kit or EVO 1 or EVO 2 kit.  I’m also considering to ad Electrical windows front and rear.
So If you like the setup of the car but like to the change the looks or else.  This can be discussed.  And don’t hesitate to ask
