Mineral Gray with a few mods and finally the brakes came in yesterday

I had the car for about 3 to 4 moths, I bought it used in excellent shape. came with the wheels, spoiler, blacked out grills and ER charge pip.

I installed the good stuff my self.
JB4 + Bluetooth ver3
AFE magnum intake
vsrf down pipe ceramic (got it new cheap) and it fit and work awesome
GFB DV+
BC racing ver2 coils
hardwired V1
M performance Brakes.
Painted rear bumper reflectors
roof spoiler

coming soon, ER FMIC, ER turbo to IC pipe, a Cat back exhaust not sure which one, I don't want to brake the bank.

Let me know what do you think.

Looks great!!! Is that a 15? Also, would you mind sharing you rims size and width. Staggered? Including tire size set up. Thanks.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

it is a 12, build date 4/2012 Sportline, w/pdc/side cameras/HK stereo

AvantGarde 19x 8.5 et 35 and 19x9.5 et 43. Tires are Conti Extreme DW 235-35-19 and rear 265-30-19 ( I think I can go 275 instead).

I was scared about the orange as I could not find another car photo in the same color with orange calipers. I am glad it came out good.

they're the same size as the msport ones (which are the blue M calipers), the only difference are that the performance brake kits have all rotors that are dimpled/slotted

to OP, nice!

Thanks to all. I will be getting better photos next weekend after a wash and polish.

Exhaust, aggressive with no drone. one that you can have a conversation at cruising speeds and don't brake the bank.

Check out the Remus axle back

Loving the color of the brakes! Reminds me a lot of the Repsol orange.

I haven't heard bad things about the fitment of eBay F80-type or M-sport bumpers.

I vote for the M-Sport bumper. To me the F80 type looks a little too aggressive given the rest of the cars rather subtle styling (ie no wide fenders like the F80).

I think the F80 style bumper would look good so long as it is accompanied by some other aero bits. I agree with platty, but if the bumper was complemented by some more aggressive aero on the rest of the car, I think it would work well.

The car looks great. If you were to change the front bumper, my vote is for M-sport. Looks more OEM. And if you chose to, at a later time, you can get the M-sport rear bumper to match.

IMO, F80 bumper looks good on the F80, not F30. Otherwise the proportions look off.
