New mods are done kiddos. List of mods is as follows. More to come, of course.

- Turbokits.com limited edition 'black' cold air intake
- 5% Limo tint all the way around + windshield strip
- Taillights & Side markers smoked with dark vinyl film
- Headlights, fog lights and rear reflectors smoked with lighter vinyl film
- "Koup" badge painted black, red down stroke of K left untouched
- Removed "forte" badge
- New "K" badges all the way around (front, rear, wheel caps and steering wheel cap) - all painted black to match car by professional painter :) -- (did not paint steering wheel badge) -- ((you will notice that you can't see the K on the wheel caps, that is because the K in the wheel cap emblems are not raised, so after painting they are simply black caps.. which I like better anyway))

Hope you like the pictures! :D What do you think?

well actually, it was your idea ;) lol. it really does make the whole car look awesome. thanks for the suggestion man!!

whatd you use to tint your tails? it looks really good
My tails (along with all my other lenses) were tinted with vinyl film (llumar high grade). The guys who tinted my windows also specialized in smoking heads/tails etc... they use the best quality film, and they did a superb job. The people who did it was "Orlando Window Tint Specialist", but that really won't help you if you're not in my area :p

My last car (eclipse) was smoked out with that spray tint crap, my koup with vinyl...... vinyl over spray paint any day... it looks way more professional, it's nice and smooth, and, if need be it can be easily removed.

lol yeah tell me about it... black is super hard to keep clean. This car is my baby though, it will stay as clean as possible at all time, inside and out :p

Thanks on the koup emblem, I love it!

I think lowering it would look sweet... however I am not going to lower it. I lowered my last car, and it was a disaster... the install went fine, it looked great - but the hell on the suspension and bumpy ride made it not even worth it. Not to mention all of the scratches and scrapes received on the front bumper/sideskirts underside.

That's totally awesome!!! Painting the Koup and K badges make them look really nice. Very inspirational... I wonder how others colours would look with the same approach...

Hmmmm some interesting ideas for a 5 door... couldn't do the 5% here in california (not sure if I'd want it but it makes a helluva statement).
