yea should have bought the lip before i got it painted lol, but oh well, def getting one soon though, was pretty easy to do that lower grill mesh mod, my grill is waiting for some cf vinyl to match the eyelids and mirror covers, gotta buy another roll and do the grill and suby lip when i buy them

Put some Lamin-x foglight covers on it and put my AAC bumper brackets the correct way after being at the paint shop

I think the yellow foglight tint gives it a more aggressive look

I really like the yellow actually. Reminds me of some of the MP3s they have in America. Also the yellow calipers don't look to bad either with it

I'll be going blue if I painted mine, I'll see what happens if I decide to do a brake upgrade on it.

But hey! Now it means I have some lower mesh stuff to use on my autoexe grille

Orded a rear swaybar from wholesale suspension, also got a handful of yellow speed stickers!!!

Was talking to Pete from wholesale suspension he said that the next lot of sway bars will be modified in the design in middle area to allow for more clearance of the subframe so it doesn't keep slapping it and making noises.
