I had a thought that I'd seen a white German XE before with very similar mods to yours and managed to find it.

Alright, progress is being made:
- roof, mirrors, frame and side air vents will be black next week
Can't wait to provide some pictures ;)
How are you planning to make them black ? vinyl wrapping or plasti dip ?
I have tried to wrap the mirror covers and side skirts but wasn't successful.

- front carbon fibre splitter is ordered
Is it from the Mina gallery, one of the forum members suggested ? If not, could you let me know where you have ordered it from and how much did it cost..

Good luck with the mods !! Can't wait to see some pictures ;)

Alright, here we go. (again, just some quick shots with bad lighting and a dirty car)

I'm really impressed how different the car looks, glad I did that. :)
Now I need to work out where I can get some used Propeller-Design wheels for the upcoming summer season. When they are on the car the Venoms will get powder-coated.

Ah yes, I already saw that one. Looks nice too, but I prefer a white line between the doors and the roof. ;)

Nice ideas ...
The roof, grille and exterior mirrors are wrapped. The side vents are painted, because the Jaguar engraving would lift the wrapping. And I did the logo on the boot myself with some Plastidip and their Glossifier, worked out good for the first attempt. ;)
And yeah, it's the splitter from Mina-Gallery. Really looking forward to deal with customs duty :roll:

Roof looks great in black against the white - very nice!

Missed this post but very glad to have seen it now. Looks very nice indeed and seems to enhance the character of the car.

I think we all know, how misplaced this looks:
