You posted the same pic twice btw

I like the two tone carbon fiber look! Did you wrap it yourself or did you buy an overlay kit?

Nice Start. I like the silver carbon on the side plates. I have the OEM IS-F trim and have considered wrapping my side pieces in darker carbon.... hmmmm.

Yeah I can't get it to only post one. I just copied the IMG code from my photobucket.

I found a guy local who did the wrapping for me. It looks way better in person imo.

Honestly, I'm trying to figure that out. I bought it from the dealer like that and I believe it was lowered on something that I'm not sure of yet. I'm really wanting to find time to get under there and see

That's the fabulous front lip, and it's one of my favorite front lips

Not sure if it's authentic or replica though. Pretty cool how you bought it like that!

Maybe...I've never seen that kind of thing happen before...



Anyways, back to the thread. I'll have to find some time to take some more pics.

I'm shopping wheels right now and am stuck between the Enkei LF-10(Black) or the Work CR Kai(GunMetal). What do you guys think?

What size wheels are you looking for? Do you plan on lowering the car?

Gonna go with 18s since the roads here are a bit rougher and I drive a lot! Coilovers will come after the wheels.

I would recommend either getting the wheels and coils at the same time, or getting coils and then saving up for some wheels.

The "general rule of thumb" is to drop first, then get wheels. Aftermarket wheels at stock height dont look that good compared to a lowered car IMO.
