I find it pointless posting on the Skoda forum, it's too big, and it's all been done before.  This one is more personal and a good bunch of people.

Anyway, I would like to share what I've done to my "non Mazda" car (shame on me) :P

Fitted my Leon Cupra (LCR) splitter yesterday and I think it looks mint.   Very discreet and most people wouldnt notice, but I think a car nut would.

Was a proper pain in the arse doing it by myself and it took a lot of time and a lot of masking tape to hold it in place.  In the end I thought sod it (or something similar) and screwed the mother bugger (or something similar) to the front bumper.  Hmm maybe you might want to see what it looks like but I didnt bother taking any pics :P

Anyway, I'm sure Stuno1 knows what I mean lol.

I know what you mean about briski mate. Busy forums are bloody hard to keep up with. Thisone cold be a bit a bit quicker but like you said, it has good people on it. Thats why i hung about. I a reged on 25+ forums but only active on 3.

The splitter makes a big difference dude. Makes the front end look a lot more agressive. All the skoda needs is lc splitter, 17's, lowering 35-45mm and looks wise that is job done. Oh...and remove the side strios and a new colour coded front grille! Lol love the vrs.

Post pics dude!!!

Pleased you got the splitter sorted, I still would have given you a hand if you had wanted though.

Yeah Stu agree with all you said.  I was going to spray the grille silver but now that the splitter is on I'm tempted to wrap it black instead, then maybe do the 2 silver trims either side of the fogs but leave the fog surround silver.

I know you would've given me a hand Andy, but I was under the car and thought I'd give it a go, plus I'm at Croft this weekend for the BTCC and wanted it on for then (not sure why lol).  Thanks anyway ;)

I'm a busy guy Paul, and I thought I needed ramps.  I tend to start a lot of projects at the same time, its taken me 3 years to do the back garden, well I say "do", it's nearly finished haha.

Sounds good dude. My vrs was black (surprise surprise... Lol) so my decision to go black grille etc was easy. As yours is silver it is not quite as easy to decide on what should remain silver and what should be black.

If you put pics of yours up I'll put up pics of mine :0) my momo wheels were a mistake though! Lol looked good off the car bur not good on it.

Lol always wanted a stalker!

The precision stitching leathers were sweet. Made a big difference. The standard seats stain so easily and stains are impossible to remove.

Uploaded a few pics of the splitter.
The grille is off ready to be wrapped black, decided against doing it silver so that it matches up with the splitter.  Also going to do something with the fog surrounds, well only the horizontal bits either side.

Also got some custom fitted sun blinds as well.  A lot cheaper than tints and they look great.









They also do them for a Mazda 3 too if anyone's interested.

I have looked at these custom blinds, think I may have to make a purchase.

I was at croft on the Sunday of the BTCC as well.
Some good racing but we missed the last race as there was only two last time I went.

Car is looking good.
