Good start... Good job on the heart transplant and painting the bumper reflectors.

I suggest removing the badge from the inside trim, makes me think Civic SI :( Wheels and the painted side markers don't compliment the car IMO. I suggest going with smoke Corners, Side Markers, and LED tail lights. Also paint the gray headlight trim black, along with the kidney grilles for a cleaner look. Look into the "Chris Brown E46 Mod" wile you are at it ;)

M tech II front bumper next?

I will keep the side markers painted but i agree with you on the wheels. This Christmas she'll get a brand new set of gun metal vmr v710's. :excited:

I've also been working on getting around to the headlight trim, thanks for reminding me lol. Smoked corners might be another Christmas present to now.

also m tech 2 kit all around is a dream of mine and will be coming some day, maybe next summer.

Thanks for the constructive criticism in a polite manner!

I like your priorities with the motor swap, but lose all the badges that aren't on the back of the car (maybe lose that one too depending on your taste). Clean is a better look than tacky. The wheels also need to go, but they'll do for now.

Thanks. For sure, I'm going to remove the fender ones soon. Since i originally purchased them I've been kind of regretting the idea, but had to try to stick with it a bit since i spent the money on it. Current plan is now smoked corners and gun metal v710's for Christmas, then mtech this summer! :excited:

I've also hated the wheels since i bought the car about 18 months ago, but I'm pretty sure they played a large part in the great deal i got on it.
