Good bye SSM > My new paint job

So I got sick of silver, figured Pearl white is a good choice so I did it
Ill let you guys decide for yourselves but I think it came out well...

Credit for the paint job goes to: Nicely Done Auto Body 416 690 1711

Link to photo album

while your on the album note the RSX seats w/ aftermarket arm rest, plug and play HID kit, rims, and matching side panels

I also got XM radio and it kicks ***, that little shark fin is what brings the great satellite content into my car

Id also like to mention that I put up my car against a Tafetta white vic and the new EL's (the white color not sure on name) and mine definatly looked whiter and brighter.

The white looks really good. I like it. The reason why the new EL's don't look as white is b/c it's just Aspen White w/o the Pearl...

What do you guys think of the Shark Fin XM Antenna?

It was a toss up between the Shark Fin style antenna or the gps style cubes.

unfortunatly once you go XM you'll never go back. It was either a shark fin or a GPS style cube. Looks better then a GPS cube / puck on the roof. Im going to get a better picture of the fin, because you can only see the top part from the front shot and the back shot looks kind of weird.

I took a look at a few escalades and it could be just sour grapes but they still dont seem as white as mine :P However theres a good chance they werent as clean as could be.

did I mention XM kicks ***? I dont think ill ever need a cd in my car again

oh the HID's were about $400 cdn in change. Cheaper for you yanks, border loves to rip us cdn's off. Especially with UPS.


any comments on the rims?

nope nore would i Want them to. I hear the hi/lo kits the servo breaks easier.

truhtfully I Dont see when you would need a high beam. You still cant blink em and thats about the only thing I would use high beams for, warning others about speed traps.

when its inspection time just throw in some regular H4's. Beauty of plug and play

Your car looks so clean. I love it. I hate white cars though. I love silver but i just hate white because they get dirty so fast. The interior is amazing. Great job man.

your right about it getting dirty quickly. Im out every 2-3 days cleaning my rims so now the car wash is just part of the routine :P

another reason I chose white was that, I live in Toronto, and 5 months of the year our roads are COVERED in salt. I figured salt wouldnt show as much on the white.
