My first photoshoot (56k beware)

This is the first photoshoot ive done with any of my cars. The area the pictures were taken was the best I could find but I think it did well. I know she needs to be dropped. Ive already got most of the components I need to do it, just waiting on money for new bushings and looking for some decently priced 1.5" springs.

Also the pinstriping is removed from the front right fender cause it was missing sections of it when I bought the car and looked horrible so i removed it until i can get it redone. Last thing, sorry for being a picture whore lol..



Feel free to comment and make suggestions!
Thanx for looking and enjoy!

And for an added bonus! Video clips of my exhaust! Its a Tsudo 2.25" Catback. The canister has a 4" tip.


Exterior Clip

Interior Clip With Windows Up

Ha wow that looks pretty good dropped lol.. thanx for doin that

Ive thought of removing the pinstripes but I think it gives the car a little flavor. I didnt have pinstripes on my old AV6 that looks almost just like my car now, and I like em.. If I get a two tone paint job I will probably get rid of them.

Chrome around the windows.. Thats factory trim on the 5th gens-

Im still trying to find a solution for the tail lights.. might just put clear altezza's in instead lol...

Haha yes I need my suspension done ASAP.. Like I said I got everything I need really except new polly bushings.. Ive got new KYB GR-2 Struts, Dropzone 2.25" lowering springs, Front camber kit, longer rear strut bolts. Im thinking of selling my 2.25" springs to go with some 1.75"/1.5" instead cause this car is my daily driver and I dont feel like scraping crap all the time.. everytime I look at the chop of my car dropped and look back at what it really is... lets just say im not happy with my car anymore lol..

CLean car, although I dont like the tail lights, and im not really feeling the rims, it doesnt flow well with the 5th gen body for some reason. Keep up the work though

I dont think im gonna get a lip kit with it lowered.. I already ran over a part of a tree branch and smashed in my header pipes.. I would have ripped a lip kit right off the car.. as for the chrome around the tail lights.. its starting to chip off so maybe in another year they will be all black lol
