    Mistakes were made when I first got the car... My enkeis that I once thought were super cool not only are pretty terrible looking, but also super bent and beat up. getting rid of the red and black theme BS.

    Thanks! i think so too for sure. Next on the list are a few cosmetic things just to fix it up, new bumper, replacing the fog light assemblies, and Im thinking of dropping the red jdm emblems... just so not a fan of red on blue anymore.

    I like the red on blue, but I haven't been running that, so I guess I'm not bored with it from looking at it every day. haha

    I do have a blue front emblem that I had on my Cool Mist (sort of a very light blue) '12 coupe that I never put on my '15 Modern Steel coupe. I'll have to think about that.

    Yeah the red on blue got old pretty quick. just starting turning into a hot wheels car lol. I was thinking of doing some black jdm style emblems, i know they arent 'real' but i think id like the look of them better over a painted stock plastic emblem. I think the blue emblem on your 15 would be sweet for real. I love that color and really wish i would have gone with that over the dyno blue.

    Those new wheels are definitely an improvement. Any plans to lower the car? Would make them look even better.

    Would love to lower, but not much at all. maybe about an inch all around. Im really not a fan of super low super cambered cars. At the end of the day to each their own but in my opinion it looks super stupid. Have these picked out, any one have experience/suggestions for struts?
