Went for a cruise with NBPRudy today and he got a few snaps for me.

I would also like some input as well,
I want to paint the calipers red-> yes/no(well I do, but should I)
Should I remove the big deflector? -> yes/no
Should I paint the wheels gunmetal? ->yes/no





















And just in case

1. No
2. YES! If you must have something there get the half bra just for the hood.
3. No.

Suggestions:
Get the HFP front lip. Sell the stockies and get some aftermarket wheels. Other than that car looks clean!

Yeah I want to get HFP skirts, just gotta get some $$$ first. And no to the bra, they scratch the paint and trap dirt underneath.

Just stockers for now. I was impatient and broke :) It was just a cheap solution until I can afford to get a coilover setup. I hate having a car at stock ride hight, and surprisingly the ride is actaully pretty good. I've been driving dumped cars for 10 years so at this height it's easy to avoid big bumps/speed bumps etc...

In my amateur opinion...

I want to paint the calipers red-> No to red, yes to a different color.
Should I remove the big deflector? -> Yes (but if your area kind of requires having one... :shrug:)
Should I paint the wheels gunmetal? -> No

Thanks :wavey: I've only had the car for about 2 months now, slowly bur surely getting there. I can't wait to get coilovers and get it lowered properly :) I'm not used to having a car this height, Most of my cars have been on the ground.

I'm still undecided about the bug deflector, some days I like it on there some I don't. It does help to give the front end something. I think if I get the HFP lip kit then it'll be gone for sure.

As for the rims, I think I'm gonna leave them. When the car is clean and the wheels are clean it looks so good.
