As I stand (Today)

I wanted to take some before pix as in the coming weekends my car will fully transform into something new.

This is my story. Here is how I stand today.
Tomorrow to come.

All pix are credit of Legion5 (who is a superb photographer and extremely talented to do post editing to make all pix look like fresh out of a magazine).

I was about to ask you that question

I received my LED taillights a little over a week ago and I need to install them but the tape had me confused for a second...

BTW, they look good!

Thanks D!
I really love how the car looks now with the LEDs.

i know i can't see it from inside, so i had to make mod 2 and 3.
With many thanks to Karim for helping me as i would have been lost without his help. To thank him, i poked him with an x-acto knief :-(


Performance Steering II with Performance shift knob. It sits lower and feels better.
