Very clean, nicely done/ The all red tails and the badge delete combined with the add on spoiler bring the back of it together. The only thing I would say is to go wider with the back wheels what are your specs?

Thanks!

I believe the wheel specs are 18x8 et47. They came with the car when I bought it. I didn't want to buy spacers for the rear now since I wanted to change the wheels ASAP. Hopefully by next update I'll have on coilovers and the Style 5s.

From the looks of the pic in your sig it seems like you have the projector's angel eye ring clipped on wrong. Get some 3M tape and stick it on so it fits correctly

Yeah for some reason every time I move them into place, they'll move back to where they are in the sig. I'll use the 3m tape to keep them in place. Thanks for the suggestion!

Looks like you're definitely heading in the right direction. Also interested in style 5 specs.

The specs are 17x8 et20 square. Planning on running 205/40s. Would've loved having the 18s, but I'm sure I could pull these off. Got a great deal for these too.

That's what I had to do with my Weisslicht halos. The clips don't hold them tight enough so I put some 3M adhesive tape under the clip to stop it from sliding.

Clean. Seeing what you did so far, I'm sure this will be really clean and tastefully put together

Yeah I did this yesterday, now the angel eyes won't move. Looks much better now. I also dremeled the headlight trim since they would usually push on the angel eyes.

Picked up my coilovers today. Not sure when I'll install them. I have finals this week so maybe next week.

Installed my D2 coilovers Tuesday, and they're finally starting to settle. Running 20mm spacers in the rear, 15mm in the front. I need to raise the rear since they constantly rub when I drive, not just when I hit bumps LOL. I suck at taking pics ahha but here's a decent pic.
