Well since I will be modifying my wifes XE I have decided to document it as I go! Here is her car the day we picked it up.

So first mod was 20 mm hubcentric spacers!! For the rear. I want to do the fronts in 15mm but don't they will work with out cutting the stock studs. Here are some before and after pictures. More mods to come soon!!

Next I will be deleting XE and 35T emblems and blacking out "jaguar" and the leaping cat. Hopefully I'll get some "glam" shots with nice back drops soon!

What quad exhaust valance have you ordered? The carbon fibre one?

Yes, I am not huge on Carbon Fiber either but I am going to give it a try with just a few well place carbon fiber pieces. They do make that quad valance in matte black fyi.

Looks great. I'd like to fill out the back arches in ours as well. Spacers are illegal here so wider wheels are the only option.

I debadged my f type and blacked out the cat, the badges come off easy using dental floss, and I sprayed the cat with several coats of caliper paint before sticking it back on with black silicone (kudos to another Oz member of the US forum who explained it all). I only put the cat back on.

It's only illegal when you get caught 🤫🤫 I think I'm going to do plastidip on the emblems myself.

Yes, I thought that too as I had bought some for my car but then I was too worried about losing insurance if I had a prang.

I tried plastidip on the brightwork and it failed when I was taking the excess off, but I dont think I was doing it right. I used it on a spoiler for my daughter's Mazda2 GT (lolol!) and it worked really well, but I put about 8 coats on and did it off the car
