Minor update:

Finally put on painted reflectors. Looks better from far away but, up close, it really bothers me seeing the line as it's not perfectly flush. With the smoked and OEM, you can't tell when the reflector isn't perfectly flush.

Also red center caps lol. Might go to something neutral like black with gold lettering instead.

how are you feeling about those wheels? I also love the BBS but cannot afford to buy the real deal, these seem comparable. Would love your real world thoughts.

Nice car btw!

Where did you get your exhaust tips? Love the 4" look.
Thanks! I really wanted the EBII at first actually and it was a manual, but I had to pass on it for the same exact reason LOL!

Got the tips from eBay actually. Pretty good quality stainless steel, cleans up nicely, but I have been contemplating switching to 4" tips with a rolled edge rather than the dual walled look. Seems to "look" cleaner for longer.

Thanks! I still love the wheels, although sometimes I think maybe I should go back to something more OEM-ish (just because I get bored with wheels easily).

The look is definitely comparable, but I imagine the real thing would be much lighter. Either way, at ~27lbs these ESR's are still lighter than the 403Ms!

Haven't had any issues with them at all though. Get a lot of love for them in person. Mixed reviews on forums haha.

Haha I know that feeling. I'm getting married in April and we're looking to buy a house next year so major mods are pretty much gonna be on hold for a while.

How much do y'all think a gloss black roof wrap should cost? I was recently quoted over $500! I thought that was a little exorbitant

From my initial research it seems like it should be more around the $200 range...?

Thinking it would really set off the car.

Didn't measure exactly but it's just about an inch front and rear.

Thanks! B14s is in my plans for install in a few months. Just need to get passed the winter months. That looks lower then an inch...I'm trying to find the perfect stance between too low and not low enough, if that makes any sense...

Haha yeah that's what I was going for as well. Its actually surprising how low it looks considering I still have a tiny bit of wheel gap too. I have room to go a little lower as well and I don't think I'd rub.

The handling difference alone was worth it for me though.

Fogs are an option, so mine never came with them.

Tried my hand at some photography. As some of you who have been shooting for a long time can probably tell, I had some trouble with over-exposure on some shots but for the most part I'm happy with how they came out. Still lots to learn...

The last 2 are great shots! In the last shot You could pull down some of those highlights and play with the shadows to draw attention to the car more. I hope you don't mind, I did some quick work in lightroom:

Wow! Absolutely don't mind. I appreciate the compliment and the tips. Photography is quickly becoming a new hobby so I'm super excited to learn as much as I can.

That's some great work on the last one!
