    You have my car! Exact same color but no aero package =(

    Would you mind going into detail about "painting" your chrome strip? I would really appreciate it. Your car looks really good with the aero package... damn, wish I had it. Oh well!

    I have about 1500 miles on my 08 already and it has been a lot of fun. I will post pictures after I get a total of 3 posts.

    I think maybe down the line I would like to get one. It seems to accent the car nicely!

    Thanks. Painting the chrome strip was a serious pain in the butt. I need to sit down and right all the steps I did. It took a full 24hrs to do.

    So, I did some more mods to my car. I put on my intake, SPT cat-back and installed my COBB AP with the Perrin stage 1 map. I also intalled a Cusco strut tower bar. I went for a drive through some canyons around me and took some pic's. BTW, my Invidia catted DP will be here Friday!! Onto the pic's.





    Here is the new exhaust!

    You've brought a lot of personality out of the car, in a tasteful way. Well done!

    +1 mate, awesome job on turning what can sometimes be considered a bland sedan into a stealthy street machine. Love the colour of the wheels, very nice contrast with the silver.

    Im stuck trying to decide if I should spend my savings on a trip back to england or buy some 18" Axis Halo rims for my red 09!!!!

    Love the car, keep us posted with the mods!
