Why go back to stock???    :o

It's very simple. I've wanna get rid out the Borbet T wheels. And without them, the car with the Zender kit would look awful. After that I've dismantle the front/rear bumper and the car is now almost stock, besides the hood.


Meanwhile, I've changed the tips of the silencer with Supersprint set:
