Are you sure? I know Stuart (with his prototype tune) is the only car that had a tune, but since he never sent his car to AZ for ESS to get his car tested and the files. That was pretty much it.

Even on the site, it says expected in 09 like it never came out lol

Most of it looks great

But I totally do not get the smoked lights, especially on a facelift sedan…and especially on IR. I know looks are subjective, but to me it just screams cheap chinese aftermarket. Why aren't you running OEM R/C/R's, or at least the original OEM ambers? Anything would look better than smoked lights.

Just my .02.

As for ambers.....not with Imola I'm afraid. I would rather go with smoked/Imola over amber/Imola any day. In my opinion, ambers look much better with black, green, or orient blue. Thanks for your input jiggz
Gotcha…and yes I'm sure you get lots of compliments on your car. On both cars!

Charlie…odds of getting pulled over by the police for no front plate?

It's such a shame so many state require a front plate…your ZHP would look so much better w/o a front plate. In WA state where I live front plates are required, but I still roll the dice w/o a front plate. Four years…so far so good.

Car looks great either way

True, good points on your car. I recall when I debated removing mine…I figured I'd probably be fine since my car is stock looking and likely wouldn't attract any attention.
