Hey everyone, glad to be here - this forum is a real knock out :box: I'm glad I found it!

Saying hello, introducing you to Tripple Black my 07 EX 5 Speed..

Mods: ADR M-Sport 17"x7" +48mm offset Gloss black w/ polished wheels.. I accidentally ordered the wrong size tires, so they are small like rubber bands! 205-40-17.. whoops. Also, DIY: lightly smoked reverse lenses only. It's been a whole 3 or 4 days that I've had the car and I can't leave it alone already... this could be bad for my wallet. :eek:mg:

Pics, sure.. forgive the crummy pics, backyards are no place for photos:









Thanks for looking.. I'll see you all on the road!

Welcome man, your car is definitely nice. I have to ask though, is there a reason for the extra P in triple? Like, is it a play on 3 nipples? :laughing:

The extra P is just because I thought the word triple looked better with two p's lol.. tripple.

17" wheels.. and accidentally tiny tires.. I know I'm kicking myself.

Drop definitly, but I never lowered a car before.. anybody have suggestions on best drop method? Don't wanna bottom out all over!

Tint I'd like to do, but NJ laws prevent front tint.. not sure what I can get away with yet!

I've never been pulled over for tints in NJ for any of my cars I've had them on. They've all had 5% tint. Just got my Si done today with tints.

This is great news, will I pass state inspection with black tint on there? If yes, I will probably do it asap.

As for state inspection, you can roll down the windows when you go. It worked once for me, the other time the guy reached in side rolled up the window laughed and said FAILED. Or you can have a friend who will pass the car for you.

Looks good....yeah in NJ you can only tint the back windows as dark as you want....there is a good shop in Hackettstown that will do it for $175. They do good work...
