Apologies to mk1 owners (I was one of them once), but with a mk2 parking next to it, it shows its age. Just my opinion. The mk1 would look much better with the 180 kit on.

I see it that way too. Sometimes looking from an angle the car is so butch.
absolutley it does sometime look really intimidating it's magic. My niece summed it up when she first seen it when she said i like the shark bits at the side.

Hey love the gunmetally colour on the ZS

Am I alone in thinking that the rear end of the mk2s are too "bare" on the boot area? I think the mk2s look endlessly superior from the front but not sure about the rear.... I do like the kinda "twin headlamps but not really" on the mk2s!

What is lettling that blue MK1 down (and quite alot of other mk1 zs's) is the lack of front lip spoiler thing....and what ever else the kit comes with. With the lip spoiler thing it makes it look lower and meaner....and really finishes the front off. I think the right wheels are important too. They wouldn't be my first choice of wheels for the zs.

The supplying dealer de-badged the car for me and this effect is emphasised on my pearl black 180 saloon.

............but I like big bums:bgrin2:

Yeah - nail on head!

It's the difference in height of the front bumper (as well as the headlights) that makes the difference, makes the mk1 look too "civilised" and not aggressive enough for me! The vents in the side look the business as well!!
