Default If BRG had a young hipster cousin, I imagine it would be this

So as some of you know, I am in love with my car but I am in love with modifying everything even more.

We recently switched out the wheels from the Cast Ferrada FR1's to Forged Ferrada FR5's, installed a Crankpulley from Eurotoys and re-tuned the car along with re-doing a few things.

We have decided against the Eventuri intake for now as we will be working with a company to manufacture our own.

I am however currently talking to Fi about doing a titanium exhaust, so I will keep everyone posted on that.

The biggest change however is the wrap.

In direct sunlight it takes on a almost teal color while in non direct light it is pretty close to a BRG. I personally love it, but feel free to tell me what you think!

Nice - I like it too. You should try to get a few shots under heavy overcast to see if/how it changes.

I like it. Hot color & very nice wheels. Thumbs up. It also looks lowered...who's springs?

I was wondering when you were going to update everyone on the wrap haha. Are you local to Fi? I've heard the video online but wonder how much better/louder it sounds in person.

Awesome. Bears a striking resemblance to Racing Green on the Evora 400

Beautiful. I think the title could be "If BRG had a smoking hot younger sister that you can't ever date".

The whole car looks classy and dangerous at the same time. Well done indeed

You car looks fantastic. Jaguar should add it to the color options - lucky for you that won't happen

The wheels are indeed superb. Light, airy, sculptural. Remind me of AMG wheels, but significantly better.
