Yeah I need to find some un-kerbed wheels and put proper tyres on them.

I do have to laugh sometimes Rob, even though you're not "modifying" there's new changes almost daily haha
I bet your wife knew this would happen, good on you though.
Give it time, I guarantee there will be mods in the future knowing you.  ;D

Definitely no mods. But I did just buy a small boot lip spoiler from eBay.
It was very cheap, so might be rubbish. :)

That not a mod, right?

Definitely not a mod.

Do you have a link to the site where you got the spoiler? I've looked on aliexpress at some which are roughly the same price but they don't offer to paint it. If I could get it at the same price and painted that would indeed be a bargain.

Hehe , no I'm stopping now. Apart from some wheels, probably.

Obviously that includes a lowering kit as well, so the new wheels look right ;D

That has occurred to me. If I go to 18s it may look like an SUV :D
But I really don't want to spoil the ride. According to the internets, Vogtland springs are engineered to provide some drop but ride like OEM.

Not unusual. Apart from a few 'classics' high priced vehicles, especially saloons seem to suffer very high depreciation rates after the first few years.
I have my own theory as to why this is, but will decline to elaborate for fear of ruffling any feathers.
