Default QCisf Build Thread *Lots of pictures/mods*

Hi guys, I finally decided to make a build thread. I don't wanted to start a thread with my car not completed, so I waited till now to make one (there's still some mods to come, but the big part of my project is finished). I’m a member here since my dad bought the F in 2012. It was my dream car and I introduced it to him when he was looking for a Cadillac CTS. During 2 years, I was on this forum almost every day reading about the IS-F, learning more and more about this car and discovering all the mods available. I knew that one day, the car will be mine. This summer, 2 months after finishing my architecture class, my dad told me that he was selling the car to get something more practical for him. I took possession of it in august and the mod fever began. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this car (due to this forum) and all the mods were done in ±9 months. That’s my story, now the car:

Wheel:
- Velgen VMB5 matte gunmetal (19x9 +35 front & 19x10.5 +45 rear)
- Michelin Pilot Super Sport 245/35/19 & 275/30/19
- Project Kics R40 neochrome lug nuts
- Bridgestone Blizzak on OEM wheels (winter setup)

Performance:
- JoeZ intake
- aFe Power air filter
- Custom real tips axle-back (muffler delete) with 3.5’’ Magnaflow tips
- 2nd Cat delete
- Blitz throttle controller
- To come: PPE headers, full custom exhaust

Suspension / Brake:
-Tein H-Tech lowering spring
- Cusco front strut bar
- Orange painted calipers with black Brembo stickers
- Stoptech brake pads
- To come: BC coilovers, F-Sport rear sway bar

Exterior:
- Lexon front lip
- S4play diffuser
- Wald trunk spoiler
- Jun TW roof spoiler
- Blacked out window trims, emblems and grill
- TRD oil and coolant caps
- Lamin-X protective film (light tint) over headlights, fog lights, taillights and reflectors
- LED puddle light
- To come: Tom’s rear diffuser, 2012 headlights, molded Wald spoiler

Interior:
- DCTMS flat bottom carbon steering wheel
- Titanium shift **** with ‘’F’’ laser etch logo
- Figs foot plate
- Matching foot brake pedal (from Nigel-JDM)
- IS-F carpet floor mats
- Complete LED lighting
- Clear courtesy light with LED
- To come: Carbon rear tray, JL 12w6 & JL 500.1

Lighting:
- Putco jet yellow fog
- Nokya Arctic white DRL
- PIAA xtreme white parking light
- Philips 6000k D4S projector

I took a lot of pictures during the installation of each parts and I will post them one by one during the next few days.
I made a photoshoot for Velgen Wheels with my crew founder Andrew Hoffman from HighSociety Montreal (hit him if you want a photoshoot in the Montreal region, very great guy). The car will be featured on Velgen website soon !

i didn't even realize your car has 92k miles... you wouldn't even know... I been finding many for sale with 50k to 80k miles on them. Guess mileage doesn't matter to a certain extent.
