Sorry but wheels don't float my boat at all, a British pothole would introduce them to the bodywork at some point.

Front splitter looks nice but again impractical over here me thinks as too close to floor (for where I live anyway)

Hi mickfiz
Thank your reply.

I modified V50 coilover some parts.
Need to change the short length of the front of the spring.
In addition, Need to process the nails of the front suspension lower part.

Really nice looking V40! I can see that at lot of thought went into that car and I have lots of respect for that :)

One of the guys on a german forum contacted madphat and got a quote. With shipping it would run you around €1000 (+ tax!) to get one of those splitters to Europe. Shipping makes up around €400 of that price :(

Lots of V40 from Asia have the covered up DRLs, is that a regulation thing or do you do it for looks?

Japan, Korea and others have a ban on DRL.

Thats ridiculous, i used to order parts from Japan all the time when i had my Civic Type R and the most i eve paid for shipping was about £35 and the part still got to me within a month.

Hi obermuh
Thank you for your reply

Your comments, I am very pleased.

Price List of CFRP spllitter is ¥84,000≒€560.
shipping cost is expensive.
but It was shipping cost around €400 when I have imported set of wheels from euro.
I consider that it is expensive because luggage is large or heavy.

Hi, Tosh!! Great job on your V40, looks awesome!!

What did you do with the tail lights? I see that the reverse light and turn indicator are tinted but the red part looks different, also
