Car looks great. Love the rims and the color contrast of the white rims and blue color of the IS.

Keep us posted with new pics.

Looks awesome! And those wheels are really 18's? Nice.

Any reason why you went with Invidia midpipes vs Megan's? I have the GReddy's also and looking for a midpipe setup.

i went with the invidia because it doesnt have the secondary cats! my greddy sp elite is really quiet so i wanted a more aggressive midpipe to make it louder
