I love your car now, looks so much tougher! As pointed out before the rims do look bigger, but even the drop is nice and level. The engine bay looks nice and clean, too.

P.S Nice 'stickers'

black top + black shoes = ninja I reckon dark dark looks good. loving the valve cover, also changed my clutch but just to Exedy oem style and it was still that much better.

That looks awesome!! I like the highlights with the blue on the centre caps, should match the darker blue of the car nicely!
