Hi guys,

I've recently finished my 3rd build on the i8 and thought I should share.


Here are the upgrades:
- LTMW Front lip
- LTMW Side skirts
- Vorsteiner rear diffuser
- Airlift Performance air suspension management
- Universal Air bags over stock struts
- Trunk Set up by IG:StatusAutomotive
- Coding done by IG:Richcodedmycar
- MaxHaust Sound Booster
- 22x9 , 22x10.5 Signature Wheel SV104 (Refinished Satin Black by IG:SupremePower)
- Pirelli Pzero Nero GT tires


Hope you guys like it! Let me know if you have any questions!

-Pete

Do you have any trunk space or visibility outside the center rear view mirror?

No more trunk space or visibility - but my reverse camera is coded to allow view-ability when driving.

I had a hidden trunk set up before this but i only ever drive this on weekends and to car shows.

How can you drive it anywhere that isn’t pool table flat?

Edit:
Just saw your list of mods. How much can you lift it?

Lol that was fast. 22" actually don't look huge on the car.

I hope you never get rear ended though sincerely. That air tank placement seems a bit risky.

Sick Build. Wallpaper Photoshoot to match. Very Nice. Keep up the great work and can't wait to see the next one.

So how do you perform an oil service if you can't remove the rear cover from all the air components?

Each to their own.

Basically spoiled the aero, drivability and weight balance. Added significant weight high up, raising centre of gravity, and to the already heavier rear.

Standard i8 will eat this in performance. Although the tyres may just give enough of an edge to compensate.

On the plus side, certainly looks aggressive

You doing a rear wing? I've seen a few that look cool.

Also, love the plate!
