New '14 from Cincinnati: New additions!!!

Hey, cats and kittens! I just picked up this 2014 LFX. I love it so far! I am just impatiently waiting for some aftermarket exterior options for the 14 model. Pics and update as they come!
The day I bought her:

Installed some HIDs. They are 6,000k, but look really blue in this pic. They are actually very white.

Thanks for the note on your lights. I bought some 5500 LED fogs I have yet to install and I was a bit worried when I saw that pic.

Yeah, that is what you get when you use a cell phone to take low-light pics.

I am installing a rear spoiler, Phantom grille, Volante CAA, and 1LE suspension kit this week.

Sounds like you are an accomplished mechanic. I am especially interested in your suspension mods. Tell us all about them. Lots of pics please. Before and after driving impressions.

The kit will be here next week. I will have extensive install pics. I will not be installing the 3.91 rear end, though. I will leave that to my warranty-enforcing friends at the dealership.

Funny note: while at the dealership picking up my NPP diffuser, a couple of the salespeople were essentially calling me a liar, saying that there is no 1LE track package for the V6. I bet they all ran into the parts department as soon as I left to see if I was telling the truth.

If you don't mind me asking how much did the dealer is charging you for everything to install the 1LE suspension. and did you need to change your brake rotors ? I have a 13 1LS and I have the 1LE springs but not everything else

I misspoke. I will need to upgrade my rear brakes to clear the sway bar.

Installed the Volant CAI:


I tried to install the Phantom grille, but it does not seem to fit at all.

Man it looks amazing.
Yes I was told that that the entire brake system have to be upgraded to at least the SS brake rotors. The sway bars will hit the front rotors as well. and I believe that the Springs for the 1LE will lower it maybe half an inch. On another note it looks amazing with the quad tips and as well with the Z28 grille.
