    So today I took some time to check the car out, really get underneath it and make sure there were no leaks I missed or anything along those lines. It came with a roof rack which I took off the same day I picked it up.

    My brother and I polished up the headlights. Here's a before an after;

    New exhaust has arrived!

    Invidia Race Series 3" Cat Back










    Since I am attaching to a stock DP I went ahead and ordered a new dounut flange and a Grimmspeed Stock DP to 3" Cat Back adapter.



    I will be installing tomorrow and will post pictures after it is done.

    Install is done. I used the GS Stock DP/3" Catback adapter and I am happy with the fit. The adapter pushes back the exhaust probably half an inch or so. I think I am going to try and get some longer hangers to get the exhaust tip off of the bumper. But overall I am happy with the install, and the sound is wonderful!

    So small update, car is in the body shop for the next few days. Getting the damage on the front bumper, passenger quarter panel, and passenger side of the rear bumper fixed. I didn't get any good pictures of the damage to the quarter or rear bumper before taking it in (doh..) But you can kind of see if you look on this picture.



    Here's the damage to the front bumper:







    And here's a picture from today of the rear bumper! My brother is going to get another shot of the front once he can.

    I've always loved those wheels. They look great on your Aero! Any other plans?
