Nice car, looks clean.

What's the reason in wanting to paint the wheels? matte finish is hard to clean?
Thanks Rash! haha yeah, I definatly prefer debadged

And yes, They are hard to keep clean, and also, because when my wheels get dirty they tend to look straight up black

You've inspired me... I will make a build thread once the coils and new wheels go on late next week.
Yes.. I really want to black out my headlights - it would complete my theme.

Looking forward to your write up!

looks great man. the coils really do make a world of difference. I have a question about the IS-F CF interior. did the ashtray not get swapped out or does the picture hide the silver CF? otherwise looks clean. makes me want to do the fog light mod as well

One of the top MRM IS on the forum. Car looks real good.

By chance, would you happen to remember the ebay member who sold you the ISF front grill?

I don't have coils... H&R springs

And yes, the ashtray didn't get swapped out. It cracked during shipping unfortunatly...
