Snapped a few random pics today

Here's a few random shots of the car. Just got the grilles and brakes put on yesterday.

Visible Mods:

ROTA SVN's, Matte black grilles, color matched reflectors, Stoptech BBK

I'll eventually get the Rota's powder coated. Haven't decided if I'm going to go with a yellow lip to match the brakes or just do them silver to tone it down a bit.

Also rolled the track wheels (Volk RE30's in gunmetal) out in front just to give a visual on them. Too lazy to put them on just for a photo, but the car basically looks monochrome with them mounted.

Looks pretty sweet. I'd keep it time attack but you should have gotten the calipers in red

Ironically, the calipers came red. I had them powdercoated to yellow. I'm thinking of doing something like this:

Love everything but the wheels...

I never liked the all black wheel look...
Makes it look like your rolling on an oversized donut, IMO

Haven't had much of a chance to drive them in the wet since we have the drought going on down here. They work for putting around town. I stepped on it a few times right after i put them on and could definitely feel a slightly worse slip angle and grip compared to the stock RFTs, but it's not horrific. They stop well enough which is the most important part for me.

I don't plan on driving aggressively on them and I don't street race, so the most intense situation I'll be in on them is slamming on the brakes in reaction to the genius drivers in Atlanta traffic. I find them to be very economical for daily commutes.

Pretty aggressive offsets on the track wheels! Car looks mean. Good job.
