I live in the province Limburg and the city is called Tongeren 3700, it's the oldest city of Belgium...because the Romans where here and that you can see around the whole city with the ancient defending walls and shooting towers ,and not forget the Eburon called Ambiorix( see statue) the tall and very strong leader,he fought against an entire Roman legion and killed them all, but finally ..... Ambiorix was killed against the best and strongest Roman army in the world !
But all this is more than 2,000 years ago,and see also link to Gallo-Roman museum & the story about Ambiorix v v v

What did you have in mind instead of the splitters? I think they compliment the OEM front bumper very nicely. And they are basically level with the lowest point of the bumper. One less thing to worry about when lowering the car. Most lip kits will usually be sitting lower than the bumper itself.

Are you getting the 220M's? I think SSII w/220's are a perfect match. The 359's look great too.

Totally agree with you, but because my car is black I wonder whether it will be as nice / noticeable. Silver, White, cars give it that nice contrast look for sure, like yours! Great job. The Perf. spoiler will complete the look for your car.

I was considering the 359s but eventually decided to go for BBS CH-Rs with matt titanium face and polished lip. This is how my car should look. Pic is a car from another forum member here.

I guess you are right. The main thing to consider is whether the contrast is there. Here's a thread with a couple of pictures. You really have to decide for yourself.
