Working on plastidiping my rear pillar and bumper, just need to finish it up once the weather warms up again. =[

after that, curious how a lip would look on him, so i bought a STI V2 Lip and went at it. Let me know what you guys think.

ta-da! lol i used my stock tires to see how they fit with 205-45s.
Click the image to open in full size.

thats probably the lowest i could go with them before rubbing. so now, need to save up for some new tires
most likely 205-40s, or get a good stretch with 195-40/45s

Oh yeah! hahaha honestly, bought some tips.

I really like everything about this car, except the exhaust tips. They just look like a 3rd degree burn on the ankle waiting to happen. Lol.
