Hey guys. So, I decided that it's probably about time I start my own mod list here. I'll post pictures along the way as more things are done. She's a 2013 GLS with the preferred package. Check it out and let me know what you guys think. I'll break it up into two sections, and update them both as things get done.

Current mods:

Short ram intake, Sickspeed oil cap, and PCV breather.




10,000k DDM Tuning HID's in the headlights, and Sylvania Silverstars for my highbeams and DRL's.


Aluminum shift knob, and DOJO lambskin suede shift boot. (taking the console off and getting the automatic shift knob off was a real pain, but totally worth it.)


White Knight black lugnuts, and body color valve stem caps.


Autobahn, and SickSpeed tuning decals.


Upcoming mods:
Turn signal mirrors from a Limited.
Navigation and stereo from a Limited, and full component speakers with a sub in the trunk.
19" Konig DTD Glide's powder coated white wrapped in Toyo rubbers.
Whatever else comes to me tongue.gif

Some shot's of her:

Sweet dude, I'm liking the color matching. Was going to complain about the rims but then seen your post about putting new rims on thumbsup.gif thumbsup.gif

BUT....

Looks great. Does your exhaust have a tip on it, or is it a full replacement muffler?

Thanks for all the compliments guys. And for now its just a tip, but she sounds pretty good with the intake. I have had a few guys in my college parking lot ask me what kind of exhaust I have cuz it sounds nice xD. But I will get around to doing a full exhaust eventually. And about the HID fogs, I did. But I had 55 Watt ballasts and the housings got pretty hot. And I kept having problems with them flickering with a harness so I just ripped em out. I ordered a set of violet led bulbs to put in the fogs for now just for color.

Ok, so I got a few more things done since i posted last. Here we go.

I ended up going HID with my fogs too. So here are the 12k DDM tuning headlights, and Xenon Depot 3k fogs. Both running on 35 watt ballasts. I also thre in some Sylvania SilverStar ZXE's for my DRL's and highbeams.




I also swapped out my interior map lights, and dome light for blue LED's.


I also finally got my Autobots emblem for the back.



I try my absolute best to keep my undercarriage, and engine bay looking their best at all times.





Let me know what you guys think so far. I love this car, and at only 19 years old, I feel extremely blessed to have a car of this caliber to play around with.

Looks great, Buuuut, not a fan of the hid's in the headlights. 12k is way to ricey. I wouldn't go any higher then 6000k. Thats just me thought. Lol.

Looks great! The HID headlights work with the body colour, but need some glare shields to keep other drivers happy.

Keep up the work, I wish I was as ambitious as you to keep things that clean!

Trust me man, no. You don't haha. It's completely insane the level of clean my car is. My family and friends make fun of me for it all the time. When it rains, if I have a choice about it, I'll drive my mom's car. If I don't have any way around it, like if I have to get to class while it's raining, when I get home she gets a bath, and a full underbody washdown. My product of choice is Simple Green. It seems to be gentle enough to not damage any of the rustproofing, while also making sure no traces of dirt are left behind. At least once every two weeks, I crawl under her the best I can, and spray everything under there with a nice mist of Simple Green. I let it sit for a few, then flush everything with a powerful stream of water. I make sure nothing ever gets built up inside the lip of the rear bumper, and I have a little test I do to see if it meets my standards of a minty fresh car. If i stick my hand inside the wheel well, and feel around the inside of the shock tower, and subframe in the front, and see any dirt on my fingers, it's dirty. Once a week I cock each wheel fully to one side, and clean my CV boots with mild soapy water, and the back of my hub assembly, and brake rotor and all that crap. If I wipe my hand on the underside of my serp. belt and get any dirt or grime on my hand, she gets cleaned with a mild, soapy water solution. I can honestly say, that in the five months I have had her, she has never gone more then three days without getting a full bath. It may seem like a lot, but honestly, I started with a brand new, perfectly clean car. So that's why it's not too hard to keep her this clean. If I never give anything the chance to build up, It will always be easy to get her all clean and shiny smile.gif I detail cars on the side, so this is just what I do I guess.

A little bit of an update. Got my Bosch Icon wind spoiler style wiper blades. I've always loved the low profile look. I also picked up Stant locking fuel cap. When I get my Shark Racing Plexiglas fuel door it will look cool having the lock on the cap:P
