prototype is on a distinguished road
it has begun....

So after being at HIN in NJ 2 weeks ago i realized that i need to upgrade my car. cant get by with a kit, rims, slam and color change....so ive decided to take it to the next level. I just purchaced new METEL z3 fenders and rsx headlights. I am also shaving the door handles and changing the color. I am keeping the 2 tone affect but am using lambo yellow which has a pearl or gren and silver. I am also sending out my pillars, glove box, center console and the fuse panel under the steering wheel for carbon fiber...here is a teaser enjoy

I like the look of the DC5 headlights - it's a conversion I considered for a while myself, but let's face it, I'm poor.

You're going to hate having to mold and tweak those metal Z3 fenders around the new headlights.

I think the headlights would be a nice addition. Are you planning on any serious engine mods? Maybe turbo or swap would be what you need to really set your car apart since it already looks good.

thats cool but i really really think that for the style your going for, you got a nice *** look, if anything id change to some crazy offset *** rims, a crazy *** paint job and like someone posted earlier a crazy system and interior work. but do what u want. i just think ur car is clean right now basically

put m3 front end clip on it, why u putting a 20k front end on a 15k car? put a 30-40k front end on a 15k car, cuz u can just go upgrade to an rsx for the amount its gonna cost to get converted.

IMO looks ugly... Why spend all the money for a conversion and use those rsx headlights?

everyone sees an rsx on the road... why not try and get something rare?

If you wanna stand out, do engine work. Swap in an engine that is rarely seen.
