Talking Brilliant White and New Mods

Well I have finally got my car back after having the break-in service performed (not happy with dealer) and back home for a weekend to install some anxiously awaited mods. I must say it was a complete joy to slightly transform the look and only took a couple of hours.

My butt dyno tells me there is more kick with the scoops and filter installed. There is better throttle response and the intake sound is more pronounced. A must mod for the price point IMO.


Special Thanks to NATE and ILIA at IND for the color matching parts. They absolutely nailed the color dead on for a perfect match! You guys Rock!

IND Mods:
  • BW color matched Grills
  • BW color matched side Gills
  • Vorsteiner lip spoiler (installed at delivery)
  • Vorsteiner rear diffuser (installed at delivery)

Special Thanks to Jurian at EAS for the quick response and shipping. EAS is solid and hope to pay a visit in person someday soon.

EAS Mods:
  • Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps
  • Macht Schnell Air Filter
  • Angel iBright V3.0

Special Thanks to RPI for quick response and shipping too. I may have to try other RPI products in the future.

RPI Mods:
  • RPi Ram Air Scoops


On to the pics....

Nicely done... I've absolutely loved this car since day one.

EDIT: Why is the driver side gill indicator clear and passenger side gill indicator black?

I love the two different looks.
After all, you can't see them both at the same time and most will not even notice.

Awesome!! I love it man. I have a question about your tint. It looks very nice and classy, and it looks rather shiny, makes the windows look shiny and not that matte. How does it look in person? I'm going to change my window tint, but want something that looks very nice, and not matte.

True because I don't know which side I like better.

Thanks for the kind words. Brilliant white was one of the best colors I have ever seen We painted a set of reflectors just to show customers the color.

love the color, your mods looks great. very clean and classy. BUT I dont think having one side smoked and other side clear is cool, sorry! that was a terrible choice IMO.

Would you put 2 different sets of rims on the car? 20" HRE or 360s on one side? and 20" BBS or your 19" OEMs on the other ?

Now I know why your User Name is slammedm3.... JK. I appreciate your opinion.

I love the two different looks. If you could see both sides at once I may have not gone this route. As for your wheels comment, that is a little more tricky. You would not want to throw off the balance of the car. However, you can never see more than two wheels in a single view of the car so the same scenario would hold true.

I do get tired of seeing the same old thing and so many things have been done on this forum. I love how everyone can mod their own car, in their own way and share with everyone here. It is a great Forum!
