Introduction/em2 progress

New to the forum here so I figured I'd show off my ride a bit. It's an 03 ex, 5spd with 108k. Stock motor wise, sitting on skunk2 lowering springs, 15" rota jspl rims (gunmetal with chrome lip).
Also has the full oem aero lip kit (due to it being my daily driver...and hitting a raccoon recently... The front lip, and ac condenser is a litte, broke. ) but, it'll be fixed soon

Future plans for the car include a full exhaust, header, and intake. And probably building the motor up a bit and running lower psi boost (around 6?) later on when it's paid off/I can get another car so I can store this.

When I first got it, it had the full lip kit on and si rims.

I wanted to get the jdm grill, but the only other em2 in my area that is decently fixed up has it. I tried to do something a bit different so I painted the stock grill flat black.

Damage from the racoon (it also pushed the ac condenser and radiator in a bit)

Re: Introduction/em2 progress

looks good man. that lip has always looked weird to me. even if its oem.

i like the other oem lip better. or even a mugen or a type R will look good on you.

Thanks
I agree, the front aero lip does look a little weird. I do like the rear and skirts though. I'm pretty sure once I get the bumper, condenser and radiator fixed I will probably just throw a type r lip on it.

Re: Introduction/em2 progress

Welcome to the site

That's not an aero front lip, that's the hfp lip, which I actually like a lot. If you decide to go with a type-r lip pm me and maybe we can work something out.
