So I pretty much did at least one mod a day for the last week.

Started with the Turbokits.com Limited Edition CAI.

Then I went and got the windows tinted. went with a 20% tint.

Then came the SharkFin Antenna.

Then I installed the SI type spoiler

Then I got a Magnaflow 12865 welded on.

Then using FEARtheFOX`s idea I painted some of the interior using Duplicolor Vinyl & Trim paint. I went with the flat black colour.

So It`s been a busy week for my koup. And I`m doing the Audo headlight mod soon as they show up in the mail.

Here`s a bunch of pics of the tranformation

Before:





After:



































Hope you enjoy!

Ok so I really like the flat black panels....you took those out, painted & popped em back in?
yes i did, it was surprisingly not too hard, and i got them out without breaking anything which is a bonus.

Amazing. Definitely gonna paint the interior after this now. And tail lights tint. I did it on my last car but wasn't sure about it on this but after seeing all you guys do it, definitely growing on me.

Hows that CAI working for you? what was the total cost including shipping? Im thinking of getting it but havent pulled the trigger. I have a black Sedan so you get a plus with all the work you put into it. BLACK IS SO HARD TO KEEP CLEAN!!!!!!! sorry had to vent! but when cleaned its a beauty!!!!!!

That's settles it. . 20% tint is going on mine. What tool did you use to pop out the interior inserts. . .That looks sick. . .You must have had some serious free time on your hands.

I love the black it looks awesome inside now. And yes Im aware of the headliner it just seems like too much work to do get it out without effing anything up!

Ill be out on the 25 at a golf event. It'll have to be some other time

the magnaflow sounds awesome, its not crazy loud, but i've only ever heard from inside the car, i havent got any death stares yet from the general public so i guess its not overly loud
