Default Meet Linny !

So I got my car about august of last year and I barely started modding it last month.
As many others have their threads of their mods on their cars, I decided to do one of mine!
It isn't much, but it's a great start.
Here's a little bit of background about me. My name is Sean. I was born in Taiwan, and came to America with my mother and sister when I was four. I stayed in the 626 area ever since. I am currently 18, about to turn 19 in April, and I am attending college at Devry University. It is a private school with ninety nine different locations, which is pretty awesome! It is quite expensive as you all could've guessed. Money is tight as of now, so I decided to go the cheaper way of modding, for now of course!!
I know I know! Less talking! Lets see the pictures or it didnt happen! Haha

Here is the car when I bought it.

And here it is after a drop on H&R Springs!

And here it is, with the wald style front lip (Which i already scratched like a mother ****er)
Living in the 626, there is not a single decent place you can go to eat, without having to enter a plaza, with a steep a** freaken dip)!
And nicely painted and fitted rear! With a m2 exhaust (Best bang for your buck IMO)

I also plastic dipped my emblems! I had this body kit painted and carefully fitted at my girlfriends dads shop, and he did an amazing job!
Heres the left side

And the right side

And the actual sides!

Keep in mind this is an ebay kit

I personally do not like the whole tinted window theme so I haven't tinted my windows yet! I am getting the philips 6k HID's and I might get the 8k fogs... I am still debating on trying to match them (I figured it was really hard as hardly anyone had done it?) and then getting black housings at tommys soon!
I also ordered the 3M CF wrap. I am planning on wrapping my interior which is in red wood atm! Then it can finally match my F sport shift ****
What do you guys think? Any compliments and insults are welcome! Any tips on making the car sexier would also be greatly appreciated! Each and their own I would say

Looking good..rare color too. I'd say a light tint for that So Cal sun. How about some red outs to cover the amber tail light. I can see some nice wheels down the road. Keep it up

Thanks guys! Sffd103, I would if I could. I was digging the Five Axis SF:5 in gun metal at first! I even purchased them from another member a few weeks back but had to sell them to my friend when I needed the money for school D:
VIS250P: Hmm, did you take your car into a shop to get it done? I would advise you to do so (: There is a big difference! The kit I got looks like it sits perfectly! It was put together with four screws ( two per side ) and 3m tape.

WEll I test fit them first and they fit perfect.. Then after the paint, I put them back.. Weired, One corner is a little off and so I use locktyte tape on it.. It dont hold well so I just leave it

I've been tryna get some wald replica sides. The one on ebay were 499.99 and 550 painted with 180 shipping! Thats too much and someone dealt with him, got a bad wald trunk, and messaged him but never got a reply. This seller has a very good rating so I am sort of hesitating at the moment.
Wish someone would sell me sides and trunk for cheap haha!
Thanks for the compliments guys! I speak mandarin and canto!

Nice start! I feel you in regards to modding with a college budget... It can be rough, but just manage and mod carefully. Imo it's most fun to mod during high school/college so all the other students can be impressed when your car stands out and think your a baller haha.
