Default Spencer's R53

I own a Silver 2004 R53. Not many mods as of now, but I have some plans for the near future.

Mods:
Driving light kit installed
FK Silverline Coilovers
Rotiform BLQ's
Started chrome to black

Future mods:
Borla Race exhaust
Alta 15% pulley reduction
K&N Typhoon intake
Denzo spark plugs
Changing interior lights and tag lights to white LED
Chrome to black (finished)


I have enough saved up for the mods, I just need to get my car in the shop to fix the vibration after lowering, I'm guessing it's the driveshaft because of the change in angle? Oh well, after I get that tweaked, I'm shaving my fenders and lowering more.



Here's some pics:

I just ordered clear led sidemarker lights too, because mine are kinda yellowed, so those will be on as soon as they get here!

Thought about that. It's under acceleration that it vibrates though, and that's what leads me to think it has to do with the driveshaft.

So..so clean. Takes a lot for me to like a Pure Silver, too. The arches and sidemarkers look fantastic painted. I've seen you on Tumblr I think BTW, lol.

Thinking about doing this. I wonder if I'll have paint fade under my stripes.. They've been on since '04, but the majority of the time, it has been garage kept. What do you think??
