Thank you all! Excited some people stopped by to check it out.

Yes they are blue calipers.. I am not home but I think I posted earlier in the thread what kit. I got it on amazon for $20z hand painted. Took a few hours. Also got custom "camaro" vinyl that went with curve of brakes from a guy on eBay I pmed to see if he could do. Applied those and sealed on with clear coat (clear fingernail polish would work too). Love the way it turned out.

Yeah I got that negotiated into my price. Live it. Can't imagine it without it.

Did you buy it? Duplicolor. Works great. Not too time consuming and leaves you plenty enough on hand for touch ups.

What do you guys think?

depends, if you get a good catback system it wouldn't be negative on your gas mileage, as long as its a good brand. cold air intake is just gonna add a little zip and maybe a slight whistle. you're going to start your car every day and hear noteable exhaust change if you get pipes.

Check out ark n2, thats a sweet catback.

I was just looking at MRT V2 axle backs. Do those lower mpg? All I can afford right now.

A little extra zip would be nice just looking for opinions after you guys have seen where my car is at now.

I love my V2s. They do very little in the way of performance but they sound awesome. There is a little drone at highway speeds but nothing that bugs me to bad but yet again that all Depends on the person. With that being said if you are considering a CAI intake I would save up a little more money and buy the two as a combo deal since it would save you some money. Both Apex and Juiced have the combo package for you to choose. I personally ordered my V2s from Apex and had a great expirence

Leading towards the MRT V2's..

I did just buy this to wrap my interior door panels and dash trim. Didn't order too much before I try it out.. I have the 2013 plastic panels so should be a since. I just need to decide if I should sand the panels down first..
