I'm not really into JDM. I think the hood and the front lip goes really well with the red paint and gold wheels. It gives it that aggressive look. But hey thanks anyways.

Wow car looks great! I love the black and red. I like the lip on the front bumper. Typically I'm not a fan of them but it looks really good on your car.

One thing though... lose the stickers.

I am planning to take the decals off the fenders and the rear window because they are getting old and ugly. The rear little bbs decals on the rear quarter windows will stay. The windshield decals are from the forum MFEST. The mfest decal on the passenger side and mfest crown on the drivers side will stay. On the bottom corner is the portuguese crest. That will obviously stay.

Thanks guys on the rest of the car!

The wheels were and are still expensive. Might look for some used 9.5" wheels next year or just get spacers.

Thank you.

I don't mean to be rude, but it looks like a kid's car. Black/red/gold/stickers...too much going on.

If you painted it the gray color from the last picture and calmed things down, it'd be a lot better (in my opinion, at least).

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

+1. Start by painting the rims they look horrible in gold.

I'm not painting my car. I did that grey photo for fun. I love the red. It's not like I went way overboard. I have a few decals on parts I actually have. The mfest decals I think are fine..... It's a huge forum and many people here are familiar with where those decals are put. I'm sick of seeing the plain e46 on silver CSL's. Thanks for the kind words I guess.....
