It's a combination of everything. The color of the car itself is very unique. If he had that color with some normal colored wheels and headlights, I'd approve. OR, if he wanted the pink (are they even pink? I dunno... purple/pink, whatever the color is lol) wheels and headlights, fine, but paint the car something that will complement that color (e.g., white with purple flake).

It really just looks like he is trying too hard with all of the colors.

Well, there is nothing about your car that stands out or says "Hey, look at me"

You know how much I like the wheels... and you have the rare lip, which is pretty subtle. Nothing to hate on.

afaik... that's why he did the pink wheels and headlights. he wanted something that stood out and screamed for attention. Hence why some people put orange wheels for their track wheels. or my friend Brian who put red wheels on his black car. or green wheels on a white car.

i understand you would rather it matched better with the color of the car but some people like to have it opposite so it stands out even more

yeah, i don't really want anything that says hey look at me... except the exhaust, which is steadily getting on my nerves like some people.

start getting your car ready for next SEMA then...

there's at least 50 people i know at SEMA this week... i've been seeing them post all over facebook: "just got to Vegas..." "just parked the car in building 3 with Honda..." "just got registered at the hotel, time to get fucked up..." "damn this is going to be a long week... working everyday AND night security..." etc. it makes me sad BUT on the other hand...

i see other friends posting: "last minute touches on the car then rolling out to Vegas..." "been working all night on the cars, off to vegas..." "i hate SEMA... damned last minute car mods..." hahaha. sooo glad i didn't have to go through that drama like last year.

Red wheels on a black car looks good.... as does green wheels on a white car, but some colors just don't go well together. Yes, they grab the attention of people, but not in a good way. That's just my opinion.

It is pretty loud. You can't even drive anywhere without getting attention. If it's loud to the point where you can't even drive the car, I think it's better to switch to a quieter system.

Just some comments about some of the people who "stance" their car. I didn't want to make it sound like I'm a hater so I deleted the comments.

BTW guys, I'm taking my car into ST tomorrow morning because it needs the oil to be topped off (I know, I can do it myself), but I also think that the car might be due for some service (just under 20k miles).

Anyway, is my car going to get flagged since I have an aftermarket suspension? And if so, what does this mean? If it means that they won't cover any suspension problems, I understand, but if they aren't going to work on my car at all (under warranty), I will be concerned.

you should be fine. I got service done with how my car is currently and I even left the JB3 in just put it on map 0 and got my car back later that day no problem. Just talk to warren and travis.

Ok, that's reassuring. I think the appointment was made with Travis. Should I let him know ahead of time that I have some suspension work done? I don't want to spring it on him at ST and him not be able to overlook my mods.

Or am I looking to deeply into this?

you are looking to deeply....if you are just getting service done and getting your oil topped off thats fine. If you were getting warranty work for a suspension issue than thats when you should worry.

^^ you will be fine bro. Travis will take care of it. I don't think suspension would kill you.

Ok, thanks guys. I was concerned because I remember somebody (Jamie, I think) saying that one of the SA's told him not to bring his car in for some problem because it was going to be flagged immediately once they saw his mods.

The appointment was made with Chris, BTW. I hope that is ok.
