**Ken's Super Awesome Transformation Thread**

My transformation thread was deleted because of trolls coming in and slinging their crap around. Let's try to keep this one civil. My whole idea of having everyone on this site experience the whole process as I was living it was destroyed, so I guess I'll just give everyone a quick run down of the process.

My Car Stock


Over the last 2 years, I've done minor mods like Angel Eyes, Painted Moldings, Tint, Custom Exhaust, Intake, Pulleys, Clear Corners, etc.

Last month I received my 19" DPE R07 Variant S's in brushed aluminum. Tires are BF-Goodrich KDW2's.




And at the same time, I put on some replica M3 mirrors and installed the H&R Cupkit.


-Ken

Over the past week, I've received my Mtech Front Bumper, Clubsport Splitters, and CSL Trunk Add-On (thanks to Unique Euro Design for hooking this up).







In the process, I've worked out a sponsorship deal with a local shop (Best Motor Works), as well as Unique Euro Design. This is only the beginning.

Now I'm waiting on the bodyshop to get these parts painted and installed.

In the mean time, I took a few pics of the car the other day with a fellow member E-PHARAOH.

Looks nice. I like the mirrors. 2 things though. Are you going to color match or black out the grilles, and are you going to get black shadow line trim?

yeah, it's a sponsorship sticker, so I have to have it on. But hell, I get some parts for free, paint work for free, and installs for free. I'll gladly keep it on there.

I don't think I'm going to paint match my grills. I like the chrome accents, I think it goes with my wheels. I did black out the insides of my grills though.

The other one got deleted as I stated in the original post. Because trolls were all over it making their smartass remarks.

Not this thread again? Sorry to disappoint you. I don't know what you mean by that, but as BreakMyWallet said, if you don't like it, please just refrain from posting. I want to keep this one clear of trolls and idiots parading around.

Because this is an internet forum. Everyone should have the right to voice their opinions. What do you think it's going to happen when you post something about your ride... some people will like it and some won't.
