This could have been bad had I drove off that way

Thanks!

In my Aussie model, pushing the open button on the key has the same effect as holding the button on the console: the windows drop (but not right down), the roof unlatches & then drops & packs itself away. It's always a great trick in the shopping mall carpark!

jay67 and joshluvsla - SICK RIDES!

Jay, i really envy that you found a 6MT ZHP vert in PA...i searched for so long for a ZHP (any body style) but all the ones i could find were high mileage and beat up

...so i ended up with a steptronic non-ZHP

How many miles does your ZHP have?

^^^I heard a report that an Airbus came in low over the Eastern Freeway after mistaking a very bright, shiny object on the ground in your area for a landing light

Hello to everyone!

To whoever asked for pictures of my car, you all know it isn't any attractive.

Maybe some day I'll post pictures of it.

Here are my updates.

Current mods roughly: I like to do a lot of small detailed mods that work hand in hand together to give the car a nice theme but i tend to forget so here is a basic list of the major stuff

Something funny I just noticed. My license plate color matches my interior

VCSl Bumper w/ 1 piece lip
Miro wheels with spacers
Carbon fiber interior trim including steering wheel, smg dome, and mirror trim
Custom Exhaust incorporating ar20 resonators
Matte black grills front and sides
St coilovers with front and rear of car being reinforced
Extended SMG Shifters
Cross Drilled Slotted Rotors
Cf hood/trunk roundels/wheel centercaps
Shorty antenna/depo smoked corners sitting in closet
CSL Rear Diffuser not pictured also

I wanted to get the csl hood and trunk but I just spent over 4k completely restoring the car. It had everything possible changed for its overhaul tuneup (Complete cooling system etc). It is not something you can see but It was extrememly important. Also my car was hit so I had to fix that as well and that held me back from some more mods.

^ Dudeeeeeeee the white wheels look sick Please dont go back to green.
You should keep the rear headrests down. The right one looks like its sitting higher than the left.
Very well done. Im loving the CSL bumper with the 1 piece lip.
