Holy shit, so much changed all at once. The vents are amazing. The trunk is gangsta, and the ipad thing is freaking awesome.

The rims work perfectly with the car.

Thanks, I love that bumper but it sits way to low for someone who races on tracks. The journey doesn't end till the car is no longer yours once you start, but you know that now.

Absolutely I hear you. There for sure hahai don't know what I'm going to do once I start taking mine to the track I guess we will just have to wait and see. I just fell in love with the way it looked and I'm very happy with how it came out although it did take a LOT of work haha

Yah it would be a shame to destroy it on a track. I know there was a lot of work involved in body work.

It wasnt an overwhelming amount of body work but after you pay that much money its not something you really want to risk ruining you know?

He was running the Eibach lowering springs.

Jay (Mindz) has the same bumper and raced, he has the Pedders coil-overs with 1" or so of drop as well.

I plan to drop mine an inch. Once I can afford to start modding again. I'm a little worried because we have a lot of steep driveways around here, I don't want to thrash my new bumper (once it's finished) during normal driving.

Dude story of my life, haha I already scrape the shit out of my bumper on everything and know i shouldnt lower it if i really want to maintain my bumper but it just looks so awkward that high to me an inch is what people think isnt much but as far as dropping it that far it makes a huge difference in a lot of things

Bingo. Fiberglass doesn't hold up on a damn bumper that low. It's a true pain in the ass, and unfortunate. I wish it wasn't so. Urethane is king on a front bumper.

He told me it was not from racing but daily driving, and a driveway caused the fender Damage. I thought he was just wanting a 1st Gen instead and another car as a DD.

Thats what his thread says, I have to be really careful with even gong out of drive ways the way it is so i know what daily driving can do to this thing, but did you see what he plans to do to the 1st gen. Its absolutely wicked
