First off, welcome to the club!! All that stuff done to an automatic?? It's not my style but if it was, then I'd say "well done". BTW, how do you like the SRI?

Lol thanks, the SRi has a deep throaty sound to it. Not too much feel in performance increase but when the header issue is resolved, the whole setup will come together.

I'll be like the Russian judge and give the car a 7.5/10. I like the wheels and the black headlight housing. If the grille was black as well, I think it would match the overall look of the car. I'm not a fan of the under-car lighting so much, and if the intake is modified, it should draw cold air in one way or another. Plus, I prefer an exhaust that is tucked under the rear so that only the tip is visible. That said, you have a fine looking car and you love it, and that is all that matters!

^^^What he said, I'd give it an 8 though, because I do like the overall look of the car, the ground fx do little for me and as mentioned tucking the exhaust would clean up the backside. And Roy is right about what matters... keep up the good work!

Thanks guys, as far as the grill, I was looking at the CF grill KoreanImports Just added to their inventory. The neons, that was the first thing i did when i bought the car so theve been on it since. I like the blue because the whole lighting inside is blue so kinda accents it. As far as the tuck, the ass at the shop didnt even give me an option like he did my buddy. I took it in told him what size i wanted picked the muffler and hours later thats the outcome. Ill take it in and have then notch about 2" outta it to tuck it. I think itll look better as well.

I would say I'd give it about an 8/10 myself. I'm usually not a fan of all black wheels (though I like black with a chrome lip to contrast it) but they match the car well. Of course wheels are a very personal choice. I have chrome wheels and I know some people hate chrome. . . haha, but as long as you like them that's all that matters. Muffler will probably look better being tucked in, but even so I like. SRI is nicely done. Upgrading to a CAI would be even better. So here's how the scoring went:

10.0 - starting point
-0.5 - muffler sticking out a little too far (plus I prefer dual pipes)
-0.5 - wheels (personal preference)
-1.0 - future mods left to do
=8.0 - Not a bad start at all

Welcome to EC


I'll rate similar to Alex.....


Starting with an HD is lower than a 10 for me

starting 8
muffler -.5
underglows -.5
rims +1
SRI 0 since its just a filter on the stock tube.

looks like we're back where we started.. 8

not trying to be mean at all just honest

Didn't you once have underglow's Justin, lol? Think he should get that .5 back. I'll give her a 7.5. I say tuck the exhaust and get rid of the underglows as well.
