So I don't think new wheels will be my mod for 2010.....
« on: October 22, 2009, 04:08:26 PM »
I have lowered the car some more and installed my SPC links. I am not happy with the ride height so I am looking into my options of modifying the BC's or going to another coilover.

Anyway, already ordered an AP. If Corksport ever stops being gay and offers black couplers with their inlet I will have that, their airbox for the Cobb SRI, their testpipe to replace the ghetto OEM pipe with the cat cut out that I got from Corbs last year mated up to an HKS cbe.

Since I'm not going to get new wheels again this year I'm planning on doing something for aesthetics. I like the DG carbon lip so I'll probably go with that and perhaps their carbon side skirts if I think the front looks too low without them.

I'm thinking that's not quite enough so I want some damn suggestions on what I should get. Please keep in mind that I'm not looking to go crazy with power mods so I don't wanna hear "FMIC, DP and methzors!!1".

Matte black roof and grille wrap maybe? If you have ideas or suggestions post them!!!
Oh looky!

You will also need 1 step colder plugs for the AP, Denso ivt22's is what most get. A FMIC is a great mod, I just put one on for $459.

Where did you get the inspiration for Matte Black roof and grill idea? Post up some pics!

Tyler has his roof painted all black and it looks good... for a sedan. I think it might be kind of hard to blend with the hatch.

You need some suspension. I'm tired of the 4x4 look on your car. lol

I may need stock suspension pieces if I switch to H&R coils so I will cut you a deal on my BC's if I end up selling. Sound good?
Oh looky!

dude, a   roof cap is about a thin as a piece of paper, and how is it more rice than getting a CF vinyl?  at least the CF on a roof cap will match the CF on the hood...

They have the same hood. A majority of the cosmetic carbon hoods are nothing more than a carbon layer spread over a fiberglass hood.
