Storm AGM 2014 1LS

Got the car in October of 2013, have done a few things to it and have a bunch of other things planned so figured I would start a thread for it. The car was given the name Storm by my wife, Storm is a gray dragon.

So far I have added a CAI Cold Air Intake, BMR Strut Tower Brace, fog lights and side marker tint. I have the tint for the tail lights and third brake light but have not gotten around to put those on yet. She is also set to get a new exhaust, installing a Magnaflow resonated x-pipe and deleting the mufflers.

Mod List:
Under Hood
CAI Cold Air Intake
BMR Strut Tower Brace
Red LED's in CAI box
Purple Under Hood LED's

Interior
LED Dome and Trunk Lights

Exterior/Exhaust
Plasti Dipped Front and Rear Bow Ties (Black)
Hood Vinyl (Dragon)(Purple)
Gill Inserts (Purple)
GTS Tail Light Covers
3rd Brake Light Tint (Charcoal)
Side Marker Tint (Charcoal)
Gen5 DIY Fog Lights
Magnaflow Resonated X-Pipe w/ Muffler Delete

To Do List
Front Grill LED's
Foot Well LED's
Blade Spoiler
Ported Throttle Body
RS Headlights
4-Pack Gauges

When I test drove it and fog lights installed.

Having my exhaust done on Monday, resonated x-pipe and a muffler delete. Decided to mount the GoPro on the back of my car and get a good clip of the stock exhaust.
