New Stuff = New Pics ;)

Used to look like this

Now with my new Spoon Sports sw388s it looks like this. P.S. Eyelids are coming just need to get some stuff to take off the stickness left on the lights.

With Neuspeed Race still finger gaps

Sorry man, but I liked it better the way you had it!
No offense though, I know you guy's like the JDM look.
But if I was into JDM, I would say great job.

Yeah, I agree. Thats just OUR opinion. As long as you're happy with it, then its all good. Well, at least your car should be faster now. Before it just looked better.

It doesn't look bad as everyone is saying in my opinion. I think if you a had a little lip kit and a spoiler maybe it would look a little better. If you don't want to get a kit just drop it more.

How much did the sw388's run you, and what kind of tires do you got?

O yeah and if you blacked out the headlights or got the gunmetal headlights it would look better IMO.

As I said eyebrows are coming off. I have Yokohama AVS ES 100 in 205-50-15. Drop I already have neuspeed race (2" front, 2"25 back) and I still have gaps, I'm still deciding whether to keep the vic or not cuz I want a gsr one of the reason why I bought the wheels. I'll take close of pics of the brand name made by spoon but made with desmond tank metal. I got them from a friend who has a shop for 1700 CAD with new tires.

I got the konigs off a member on the site with tires for 900CAD but then I cracked them on a big *** pothole well one of them. Definitely go with 215-45-17 if your goign for 17s unless your roads are pretty good go with 205-40.

Thanks for all the comments guys good and bad, I like the mostly show look 17" but they were getting killed by the roads over here. I might be getting gs-r if I don't i'll add a oem kit or maybe 2003 aero kit. The car has been dirty for the last 2 weeks my whole road is gravel so i'll clean it up when its done then i'll post some new pics.

Screw the Konig 17s. Your Spoon SW88s are so much better, I'm sure you appreciate the lightness of the rim as opposed to oversized 17 Konigs. It was a good thing u took off the eyelids, it looks alot better. Consider tinting your headlights while leaving in the Amber peices, get a OEM frontlip (paint it black) and you'll have one nice looking car. Too bad it can't ever really be JDM, since you have a coupe. BUT NICE CAR THOUGH!

yea you need to accent your black theme a little more. Im sure if you got an altezza grill painted to match your car, leaving the mesh black like you are supposed to do, and if you got black housing headlights, tinted the windows you would have a really hot lookin car. But right now there are too many sporatic colors...but like i said there is a really hot lookin car in the makes there, it just needs to come out.
For instance, my car use to have chrome projector headlights, with tinted tails and what-not. After the tails were done, i just had to get the TYC black housing projectors, and an altezza grill to boot...the car looks really good now. Its all about whats pleasing to the eye...that means not too many colors in a space of that size.
Sorry i like to type...i will stop now.

LoL @ your HUGE *** Spoon Sports decal.

Lose the eyelids. They're tacky and they're not JDM, so it doesnt go with ya.

Try n get some TEIN coil overs to help with that gap.

Anyway...spoon rims are sweet. But I have to agree they they look a tad small on our cars.

Now all you need to really be JDM is....a JDM motor, a JDM ****, JDM headlights, JDM moldings, JDM performance parts, and a JDM Rear clip to convert ur car into a 4 door or hatch.
