I appreciate it! trying to get her there. theres still ALLOT more on the shelf. I want the stereo in next, but we'll see how that goes. I do plan on keeping it probably forever. ive added up the current tally of parts already bought (mostly) and parts needed still (few) and its about $15k with the $1400 cost of the car. that doesn't include possible kaphlenke coilovers, torque rods ect..

So sick.

And the point-and-shoot is better than the potato cams on phones!

Very nice, wow.

See you got the fender badges off, have you found a set of marker lights yet? Going OEM?

True, true.. I almost went downtown with just my cell on me. I was glad that I grabbed the point and shoot because otherwise these pictures would have turned out like crap. I'd still like to get it DSLR or something so I can have a little flexibility.


As far as the fender markers, I have OEM ones but have been putting it off for various reasons. I think I'm going to wait till next season to put them in. I have a vinyl wrap that I've been wanting to do for a while and those markers lights will need to come off in order to do it. I figure I might as well wait till that point to put them in. Thanks for the compliments everyone else. I should have some more pictures coming up when my camera is recharged and I have some extra time

The fender markers are easy to install and take off. Even if you don't wire them up, it may be worth it to St least plug the holes?

Tiny cold air intakes.

But yeah, just stick them in there to fill the hole.

Thanks for the compliments Everyone. By the way, I forgot to mention that I put in my RSI stage 2 cam a few weeks ago. I also put in Tlao chips. Unfortunately my air intake hose between the air box and turbo is completely soft and now collapses even at partial throttle as low as 2500 rpm. That will be my next purchase to facilitate actually being able to use my power band
