    The guy at Shades of Gray has a red STI with the tails done. He wanted me to get them on my car, too, but the clear tails are growing on me.

    I love the way the red lightning looks when the windows are tinted.

    the debadging looks good too. i might have to try that myself.

    Love my shorty antenna.. but your radio reception may suffer a little. I used to be able to cruise through the tunnels around here without loosing the radio reception, but after the shorty I loose signal in the tunnels. Everywhere else is good though. I got the 2" one.. looks .. well, very subtle. Much better than the rc antenna factory look.

    Ya I have the perrin super shorty antenna. It looks cool but it does affect reception. Nothing unbearable though.

    I don't listen to the radio (iPhone music + Pandora ftw), so it doesn't matter much. It's really just for looks.

    Do you guys running 20% tint have problems seeing out the windows at night time making turns and such?

    It has been a few years since I had the tint done on our other cars, so I don't remember what percentage they are and I am struggling.. :S
