Really sorry to hear that buddy.
Thanks man. The car will be around for a while but our boys time is very uncertain. I will be doing the valance this weekend then it might be sometime before I pick back up and so some more to it.

I’ve got my service and MOT this Friday, if all goes well I might treat it to the quad conversion

Well did this today. Took about 30 mins to do. Just like most aftermarket body parts the fit wasn't perfect but some finesse I got it in place and looking right. My neighbor lent me a sawzaw to cut the tail pipes but it started to rain (we haven't seen rain in 3 weeks) so I'll do the tips tomorrow and take some better pics afterwards.

There on but stick out too far. I cut the tips with a sawzaw and the quads are slip on's. The just don't slide far enough back (they hit the muffler) so going to take them to exhaust shop and have them trimmed and welded on.

Looking good so far, how much have you trimmed off the tail pipes currently?

I suppose it’s down to personal taste but how much further in do you think they need to go?

What were the issues with the diffuser figment?

This how much it sticks out. The slip on quads need to be trimmed about 1.5 inches. Have an appointment Monday to do it.

Looks good

Could you take some photos from a distance?
Are you pleased with the final result?

Looks very nice. With your roof are you wrapping the A and C pillars as well? I did that to my F Type after falling in love with the DBS Superleggera, it looks very flash and flattens out the look of the car (takes away height). I was wondering how it would look on the XE but I have orders from my wife not to do any more wrap to it.
