    This is Simone...

    Nina was a very nice piece of work but I thought she was just a bit too 'prim and proper' to fit into Vancouver in her original form.

    The car needed some edge, more attitude and be a lot 'dirtier'.

    If Nina was the girl next door then Simone is the girl in skin tight leathers and boots.
    Here are a couple of crappy camera phone pics.

    More details to come when I get my camera back (SD card stuck inside)

    I'm far from done as there is too much front wheel gap for my tastes. And I am not sure how much farther out I can push the rear wheel out before it starts to rub the inner fender lip.

    Had a 10mm spacer back there and it pushes the wheel too far out. Any spacer suggestions for a 225/45/16 rear tire setup? 4-5mm? I'm having them custom cut.

    As I told Levent... I do great work to ex's 8)

    Beautiful euro. I think you're missing sideskirts though.

                Are the skirts the cabrio specific ones?

                    I'm not sure, is there a way to identify if they are?

                        I think Levent has a set of coupe mtech1 skirts and they wouldn't fit due to the vert lowers. I have no way to tell you if the ones you have are the same or not.

                        I was wondering who would pick up on the name

                              I couldn't stand the wheel gap so I had the coilovers installed and ride height set.
