There really is no other competition besides the Prius. The LEAF does not have the range we need and the Fisker is WAY out of our budget so really there is only 2 choices here.

Few cars out there can do 45+ mpg

Yeah, true....... My VW Sportwagen gets 45 mpg + during the spring and summer months.

But it's a diesel.....and the prices suck right now.

I have some larger mods planned in the works but trying to take care of the necessities first

Nice! Need to do the same for my wife's CT... Where did you get the kit?

Yes more pictures are coming - the lip is mainly designed to protect the front bumper from curbs but looks pretty nice too.

Actually I sold the IS-F since I plan to get the GS-F as I need a larger car. Yes we are testing rear diffuser options right now.

So over the weekend I had some time to kill and decided to do a few things for BOS event:

We wrapped the entire roof in matte black (the edge of the roof where it meets the windshield had chips!) and also decided to give the front grill a more aggressive look.

here's a picture of it while being primered:

I'll have some after pictures later

Some shots from over the weekend:

Interior is all spruced up with some minor add-ons:

Front Grill treatment definitely gives it a more aggressive touch:

Added the sharkfin rear diffuser for now (bumper coming later)

Roof is wrapped matte black along with front grill trim:

Now it's time for the coilovers and rims next

Stay tuned!

I love what you've done with your car. I'm interested in your stock wheels if you ever decide to sell them!
