White reflectors and wheels need to go. I would do a silver wheel. The black on black on black is just to much. Nice otherwise.

as an owner of a jet black car, always wash the car yourself. use pressure wash to blast the dirt off first, then soap. it will save the paint and wont leave swirls.

Overall i like the transformation minus the white reflectors.

you have any type of wheels in mind?

Thanks for the feedback... I am looking into new wheels (not black)... I have been using the black csl rep's for the meanwhile as they came with the car.

Also, yes the white reflectors will go :P

Yes, the automated car washes leave heavy swirl marks! And thanks!, there is much more to come...

Haven't done much research on the wheels yet. Any suggestions? And they will be mounted on hankook ventus v12's. Good budget summer tires...

Oddly enough I may be one of the few but I actually think the white reflectors look cool. I kinda like the stormtrooper look of white on black

Ty. It is certainly different. Might go black soon though as I have nothing else white to match it as of yet...

Can't say I would do the same mods you have but I gotta give you respect for doing all the work yourself... especially given that you look pretty young based on the pictures. Keep it up!

For what it's worth, my vote is black reflectors.

Love the painted brake caliper idea with the decals... where did you get them? I may want to do the same. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks! The decals were off ebay for about $8 for a set of four. Will pm you the link to both sets of decals... Have to say I got the brake paint/idea from another member...

Very nice mods!

+1 for the brake decals.

I just got the VRSF 5" FMIC. Did you get the upgrade pipping? I couldn't reach the top of the pipes to get them off to replace them with the upgraded pipes that I got with the FMIC. Was it difficult for you? Didn't have to cut anything did you?
