Vai's 2013 2LT RS "Bhim"

The pictures below are from my phone but will have a camera in just a week or so.

I got the car 12/23/2013. So excited as I'm going from a Prius to this beast! I know it's a v6 but come on I had a PRIUS.

It's a 2013 2LT RS with navi, sunroof, and a backup cam.

At the dealer waiting for me to sign the paperwork.



Finally home!



Picked up new wheels on the 28th from scoticus.rex a fellow Cam5 member.

Replaced the RS stock wheels and Pzeros on 29th with the below for the winter:

Motegi Racing MR118 17" x 8" Black Painted Wheels
Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 XLs (235 65R17)





Today made a mistake of taking a shortcut and not removing the tail lights to plastidip and did it straight on the car with just tape.



I waited for it to dry and removed it. Heated the can with a blow dryer while shaking it to warm up everything evenly.

Started all over and the lights came out great! Since it was spraying well, I decided to do the bowtie.





Of course there is a downside why wouldn't there be??? It was very windy and well I didn't see all the overspray going all over the place...



Now to go run down the block and get some Turtle wax bug and tar remover. Thanks yotaman96!

Things to come:

Plastidip front bowtie
Change all lights to LEDs (License plate, Dome, Fog lights)
Catch can
VMAX CNC Ported Throttle Body
CAI
Solo Mach X Exhaust and Solo High Flow Cats
Washer tank relocation kit
Scoop for CAI

If you guys have any suggestions on types of exhausts or places where I can get them it would be very helpful. This is my first time actually modding a car myself and would love all the assistance I can get.

Thanks!

Thanks Spartan! I feel like this addiction is going to be way more expensive than my corals...
