Phase 4: 5/2014

Next thing I bought were my AC forged 313 19" 3 piece wheels. Polished lip and faces. 19x11(ish?) 19x 10 or 9.5. At this moment i realized the car needed air ride. I didn't think H&r springs would make it sit the way I wanted and coilovers would be too low for me to drive on.

Other parts:
eBay halos

Phase 5: 8/2014-9/2014

I purchased a jb4, and traded black m3 winter wheels for oem wheels and a catch can. (Which I ended up getting the m3s back because he needed the OEM to trade his car in.)

Installed my DCI

Had my 3 piece ac forged 313 wheels powder coated jolly rancher red, barrels were coated black.

Phase 9: 6/2016-8/2016

I bagged it.


Did the whole bag installation myself other than the actual air springs/struts.

Once installed I got diamond quilted fabric and installed it in my trunk.

Currently I have added laminate flooring to the wood floor that I got from lumber liqui******. Cut it nicely and made a temporary insert for the floor. More to come for the trunk.

Bought another set of VMR 710s and flipped them, along with style 157s that I flipped as well.

Sold my LCI trunk and waiting for delivery on an LCI CSL trunk.

got a foam cannon.

attempted to fix a crashed mtech bumper I picked up.. Didn't go so well. Fun project regardless

Update 12/2/16

Single Turbo!!

My vargas 2+ turbos have started smoking and leaking oil after only 2-2400 miles. so instead of going hybrid again, figured id do a single kit. I went with an on3 performance kit and it took 3 days to receive. MNC Performance in Oceanside, NY, will be taking care of the install as usual. ill post a thread about the kit and fitment once they update me.

I won a set of BRAUM racing seats as part of an instagram contest they were having. ill be selecting the color in the coming week and ill update once i receive them.

I ordered an LCI Msport bumper from European Motorsports Society. its being painted and shipped to me as we speak. ill update as well.

The Red AC forged 313 3 piece wheels finally sold! i also sold the ambit re02, bought a set of rotiform that i planned on redrilling to my car. however they ended up being traded for 220m which were traded for one of my favorite sets the style 95. which were on for about a week, then sold. I'm currently on the stockies with spacers and it looks pretty good.

And I enjoy every second of it. I didn't have all the money I've spent on it at once. So I've done it over 3.5 years. I also have added my mods to my insurance coverage. I like personalizing my cars.
