You really need to get another hole cut for a quad setup with that diffuser! And some fat-ass tips
It’s very tempting but I know I will get a lot of hate for doing quad setup since it’s not an ///M engine :rofl:
Seriously? - I reckon you've gone way beyond anything the 'M police' radar will pick up :D
Hats off to you for creating a seriously spectacular Zed :evil: :thumbsup:

Wow, that's low - is it bagged?
Why did you blank the front side reflectors, but leave the rears red? Is it a legal requirement to have the rears visible?
Looks like a lot of work's gone into that - well done! :thumbsup:
I’m not a fan of any bumper reflector. Only reason I leave the rear because they light up and I wasn’t too sure if it will cause a warning light to be on from the instrument cluster or not so I played it safe
I see. Didn't realise they were actually lit, just thought they were reflectors.

What haters? I see a couple of people say it's not their taste (fair enough) but overall most people appreciate the effort that has gone into making this Zed (Zee) what it is.

Forgot to add WideEvo's own quote about getting hate if he added second set if tips on non M car. Not suggesting that anyones comments were disliking his car. I personally agree with Marlon's post on the matter. WideEvo can do as he pleases. As a new owner of a white roadster, I am as interested in what WideEvo has done as I am in what Jingle has done with his. Splitters, ride heights, wheels, lamp colours, dual colouring. All a learning curve for me.

Ah, thanks for clarifying. I was surprised at the OP's comment regarding 'haters' for the quad exhausts. Must be a regional thing, because there have been a lot of quad conversions done on this forum and I don't recall any criticisms (unlike slapping ///M badges all over your non-m car).

Yeah people on here are very particular about how they like their zeds :D

I am curious, how does the car ride on air suspension?
