Thanks! And they're 18s. Not too many issues in terms of lowness but i don't really pay attention since i'm getting my bumper repaired and repainted very soon.

Can you post a picture of your headlights on DavidRbibo ? I want to see the difference with the Lamin-X. Looking to maybe do the same to mine.

Just got my car back from tinting! Way darker than I thought it would be but oh well! Went with 15% 3M film all around except the windshield.

I got pulled over for 35% tints and i redid all of my windows to 50% but that was basically see through. If the 15s now are as dark as they are, i can't imagine limo.

That's 15% looks like 5% limo tint. Way too dark! Rest of the car looks great though.

It looks like the guy spray painted the windows gloss black and called it a day! Im going back there on Monday, he might've made a mistake.

Does anyone have any experience removing mirror covers? Tried following the DIY but nothing seems to help. Just got my gloss black covers in and would really appreciate if anybody could help me out here, thanks.

Looks good. Real good. Not sure I would have spent the $$ on the mirror covers myself. Or tinted the headlights, it's just not wise I guess but hey, I'm older than you I'm sure.

A little surprised you have wrapped the roof black yet. Or added a small black rear lip spoiler....

What color on the brakes? The more time you spend prepping the calipers better they look and the loner it will last. Assuming your going to paint them with a brush and not powdercoat.

Get yourself an IND keyhole cover. Thank me later.

Finally got my brakes painted gloss black this past week. I really wish I got the M sport brakes that match the color of the car but I think gloss black (to match the wheels) will suffice. Next up i'm getting my bumper fixed and some paint-less dent repair and then the rocker panel decals are next on the mod list!

Also bought 4 new tires from a forum member (unbeatable price) because my 2 rear tires needed replacing (12,500 miles )

The dark tints looks great on the car! (mines un-tinted) If you went that dark you can do the windshield as well.

Noticed that you're on H&R super sport springs. Are you still in stock suspension? Are they M-adaptive by any chance? How's the ride? I like the stance but I'm afraid those are too bumpy for me. Thanks!

Hey, yes I just replaced the springs, not the dampers (no DHP). Ride is a little bouncy when driving at freeway speeds but on the road it's just slightly stiffer and you feel more of the road imperfections. I would definitely recommend the drop just for the look but if you're able to get coilovers i would go for those, but these are a great option nonetheless.

That's what scares me. I have a DHP, and I'm concerned that I might screw up the system if I go too low. Thanks for the reply BTW.
