Default Supralative's simple subtle build up.

Picked up the car Labor Day weekend 2012.

Click the image to open in full size.


First mod on the car was 3in polished intake system.
Ended up changing out the filter supplied with kit for a K&N filter instead.
Also did the Xtec red outs on the tails along with 20% tint all around.

For fun test fit my friends 19" VOLK TE 37 Seibon Edition Time Attacks
Photos taken by our friend Jesse M(Schema).

Tried out the M2 axle back for about 2wks and hated the drone so sold it.

Did the full white SMD interior/exterior upgrade in lighting but do not have any pics of that.

Next came a set of Rohana RC10 in limited edition silver windows with machined face. 20x9 and 20x10 with 245/35/20 in front and 275/30/20 in rear. Liked the look overall but too much rubbing in front drove me away from them. I could have probably stretched the tire up front but that isnt the way I prefer to do things so ended up selling those.

Finally decided on a set of 19" TSW Gunmetal Strips. 19x8 and 19x9.5 with 235/35/19 and 275/30/19 for tires. Liked this look due to the color match and the big lip on the rear wheels.
My front F Sport style lip came in as well so had that painted up and put that on too.

Got a color matched roof spoiler from Carbon King on ebay and it arrived really fast. Paint is a real good match just need just abit more metallic to be a perfect match. No pics of that as of now.

My Megan EZ coilovers arrived today so hopefully we can get those on in this cold weather. Gonna throw on some 3000K HID fogs as well.
If so my good friend Jesse(Schem)a will get a proper photo shoot done. Next on the list will be the Megan Drift Spec axle back exhaust or possibly custom fab one through us.

Coilovers went on pretty smooth. For what I was wanting the ride is great. Overall pretty smooth and firmed up. Not harsh or too bouncy at all. For the cost of $650 they are a hell of a deal. HID 3000K fogs are installed as well and really light the road. Managed to get a few shots with Schema last night so once I get those I will post them up.

yea i dont like to stretch tires at all
i could have went like 245/30/20 instead of the 245/35/20 to maybe make it work but i wouldnt have gone any skinnier on it for sure
its lowered now....just not slammed like most and tucking wheel
at this height i can go anywhere without a single rubbing issue in the fender well, fenders, or anwhere at all full turn lock to lock with no rubbing as well
all i have to be wary of is the front lip which i have scraped already before LOL
