It's a bike rack. I race road bikes and use the rack several times a week.

Installed the BMS JB4 Stage 2 today. Was a lot easier than expected and the set-up is easy. Huge improvement in Map 1 on 93 pump gas in the turbo lag and overall hesitation on accleration. Can't wait to get it on the Hwy tomorrow

Fresh ride! Love the clean look with all the mods.

I have AW w/reg sport. Can I ask where you got the Msport bumpers from/how much you paid for them/paint/install?

Thanks!

Thanks Tom and your team http://tradesecretauto.com/ for the great work!
Very nice mods... perfect just like we like the cars here in Europe
Can you inform us a little more on the nice CSL style wheels? What rubber do you have on (size) and what ET are they?
Thanks for sharing...

Looks awesome, but I am curious,,, assuming you bought new why didn't you just order the car with the m-sport package, would have been cheaper and would have saved you the hassle.

The wheels are Avant Garde M310, 19x8.5 ET35 & 19x9.5 ET33. Tires are Hankook Ventus V12- 235/35/19, 265/30/19. I did have to do a slight roll on the rear fenders.

They had this one on the floor and I didn't want to order. When I bought the car I hadn't planned to do any of this work. And then the mod bug bit the shit out of me!
