It Begins! Cami Lynn 2011 IBM 2LT

Well I finally picked her up yesterday afternoon and I have to say that I am extremely impressed with the power and handling of my new baby. I used to be into the sub compacts, my first car was an 00 Ford zx2 coupe, then I had an 06 Scion tC as my first new car, then stupidly leased an 09 Lancer Ralliart...I now could not be happier! I love the surprising agility of this car and the HUD is absolutely stunning! I have yet to open her up completely since I still believe in a proper break in period and we have had some crazy rain storms running through the area since I picked her up. Like everyone else I cannot wait to start modding her. On my first day off I plan on installing my lip spoiler, stealth bulbs, HID's and 2 12" MTX Jackhammer subs in a box I built myself when I still had the tC. Here are my first few pics, I hope to keep this log going along the way. This car is amazing!

Thanks to everyone who helped me out with ordering and advice!

lol yea so much for the plate hiding...o well. After work today I washed her and waxed her and shined the wheels n tires up all nice. Took her for a little spin then I put the stealth auto turn signal bulbs in and did a test fit with the lip spoiler which went well. I was losing daylight so I decided to just stick to the test fit and make sure it lined up right and the color matched perfectly so that once I build up the courage to drill the holes it will take no time at all. I wanted to put my 2 MTX Jackhammers in but even though measurement wise the box I made should fit, I could not get it in the trunk so I ordered the ******** dual 12" box and will just throw that in instead. I also tested out my one guilty pleasure lighting mod and once that is done I will post up pics. I cannot believe how many people stop and stare at the car, I know of two others in my area, and the neighbors still stare. I work in a very affluent area and even they stare from inside their high end vehicles. This car is extremely classy and feels so right. I plan on eventually putting the HID's in, getting an intake, and thats most likely it. I am very pleased with everything about my baby and I really do not think that I will go mod crazy with her. Who knows though haha.
