drops improve the car 100%...then wheels...then a lip...IMO you dont even need other skirts/rears, but then again im into more of the raked look.

Red/clear tails, exhaust is not a must yet, either clear or blackhouse your headlamps, get a v6p decal(s), drop it with a shock+spring combo or springs only if you can live with bounciness, intake, some nice wheels either black w. lip, or polished silver/ reg. silver, ehh that about covers it.

As for the lip kit, Xenon is pretty nice, or mix and match.. it seems every sedan owner has WW to me.. js don't do it where it looks whack and off place.

Its not too difficult. You just have to be carefull.

Definitely drop it! It seriously makes a huge difference, even if you keep the stock wheels, it looks so much better dropped. If you can afford wheels with the drop, then get the new wheels too.

Get some oem wheels(the new rsx wheels or such) they work the best I had so much trouble with aftermarket wheels, they bend so easily and hard to clean.. Drop your car first.. no doubt about that...

yea i am for sure doing the drop first...jsut deciding on wat drop im pretty sure i want coilovers so i can lower and raise and such........

i was thinking tein basics....but someone on here is selling ground control coilovers in the forsale sections...anyone ever heard of them and if theyre quality or not...

they are half the price on the teins...cuz i know you get what you pay for but if someone has them or knows anything about them they might be worth it still??...well thanks for the replies

IMO just get the tein basics. the ground control good & reputable co. they used an eibach springs but you have to match it with tokico shocks which you will spend close to the basics. im satisfied w/ my basics not to soft not to stiff. goodluck!

Old thread from a good guy.

http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...ing+headlights


Remember, people say to take caution when opening up the headlights with a heatgun. I've heard the oven works around 325 degrees but this takes more caution/risk.

Also, when taping up corners to paint to your likings ie) corner signals, amber, all around black, etc. Careful not to rub off the chrome around the housings!

And to seal it all up, silicone sealer.. use caution and patience as well! G'luck buddy
