Quick picture showing the shorter front plate I have fitted - UK road legal letter size and font - just a smaller plate itself

CC looks excellent. The F56's are growing on me but still look like a countryman from some angles. How do you rate it compared to your R56?

Night and day to the R56.

I prefer the F56, but there are elements of the R56 that are just better looking

Engine is superior in every way and the interior is leaps and bounds ahead too.

I think once its lowered and it has a meaty exhaust fitted - I will love this car even more

Can someone do a couple of photoshops for me?

1) bonnet scoop & the thin strip on the grille (the horzontal bar under the S logo) in white

2) just the bonnet scoop in white

No, because the paintwork looks perfect the way it is now. You're actually making me want to paint my trim now...

I think switching that thin bar in the grill to white (or even a shade of orange) would be awesome, but I wouldn't recommend doing anything to the hood scoop.

I can't photoshop to save my life, but it would be super cheap/easy to wrap that in vinyl.

leave the scoop body color, messing with it is often looks 'cheap', just an opinion.

Hmm, even that strip seems a little too contrasty in white. Didn't expect that. Maybe a light gray would be better?

Maybe a "GP" surrounding ? In lighter gray . Not the GP letters, but that circle around.

I'm debating ditching all the CC'ing in favour of a black grille surround / bumper strip and putting the original gloss black bumper bar back on (the bit where the plate is)?

Am I stupid?

Hmm, I personally think the black bumper bar would be an improvement over the TG one, but I don't think I'd go as far as replacing the surrounding trim with black. It's a tough call because TG looks so different in pictures than it does in person
