Late is better than never...

Oxford green metallic FTW!!! Bought this back in December, and since have put in Dice, BSW sub system, black grille, smoked corners and sides, clear tails, and 20% tint (put in 2 days ago ) in addition to a few under the hood replacements. I am very happy with how its looking especially after corners and tinting. Sorry about the flower petals and dirt - it just rained a bunch here (figures... its seattle)

Oh and don't forget about the golf tee mod

Future projects?
-Two tone door panels (black and tan)
-at the same time do component speaker and amp replacement? (HK isn't doing it for me and BSW is too expensive for components and no amp)

Welcome! Nice color, I like to see the other thanmore familiar colors. They're cool too. If you need advice on audio I might be able to help. I gutted the entire system. I can post some pics if you like.

It dropped it a decent amount and eliminated a good amount of the wheel gap, but I'll have to check in a little bit to see where it finally ended up now that its had some time to settle.

What kind of setup did you do? I've been researching and if I take the plunge, I'm gonna do a 4 channel amp, maybe 6 channel LOC (LC6i i'm thinking, unless I can find an amp to accept balanced signals), then hopefully some nice focal drivers up front and either stock in back or a less expensive set of components in back. Hoping to keep it around $700. Also liked the infinity 609cs components, but they didn't sound nearly as good as the focals in car toys.

1st - I meant no insult to anyone.
Before I got the xi in Nov 08, I had an '01 Audi A4 1.8T. On the way to work I T-boned in the driver's side by an '90s Impala from the front door to the rear wheels. She pushed me all the off the road into an embankment so hard that the rear axle was ripped off the frame. Fire dept came and pryed the door open to get me out. So, 3 surgiries to repair my left shoulder and 1-1/2 yrs later they discover I have damage to 8 vertebra, C1 to C7 and T1. I have very little feeling in mhands sometimes my arms & legs are numb. Incredible episodes of pain that would make Sadamm Husien puke. The meds help but not enough. I'm seeing a spinal neuro specialist on 5/3. I was told by pain managmen doc that I'm headed for some very serious surgery.

That is niiiiiice . How do you like your polk component speakers? How about your amp? And how much did they run you? For drivers I definitely want 6.5 inch components, most likely focal, mb quart, or polk. Not as sure what to pick out for a solid 4 channel amp. Trying not to have the price tag run up too high...
