decided to purchase a ebay lip spoiler for $29 I was excited but there ended up being a paint chip but they sent me a new one in a week!

I was then able to purchase some VMR 718's in Hyper silver finish 18x8.5
18x9.5 et 35fronts and et45 rears and wrapped them in hankook ventus v12's 235/40 and 255/35

next I purchased some wood trim from a forum member and it was in amazing shape! he was an awesome seller! I then purchased 1080 scotch print glossy carbon fiber vinyl and wrapped it!

pretty soon I was tired of the yellowed depo sidemarkers that came with the car and bought OEM clears

then I felt like it was time for some mini morimoto h1 projectors from the retrofitsource with their 6k hid kit. did not have to code my car just used there stand alone canbus harness no flicker, or dash errors

also I bought a mtech 2 front bumper which is done being painted their just waiting for me to bring my car in so they can install it so hopefully i have time today. I purchased oem air ducts alternator duct and front license plate delete strip!

and the other day my car was ideling rough after it snowed and it got really cold so i just replaced all the spark plugs and all ignition coils and its good now!
