Good deal. Lookin good. I like the door panels. But to be honest, I don't like the Tanabe emblem. Thats just my taste. I likek cars to have a really clean look, plus that emplem has all sorts of different colors on it, it doesn't really match. I save up my stickers, liscence plate frames and have a collection in the garage. Its pretty tight.

Keep up the good work.

nice pix. i agree with the others that a clean look is nice. i personally would shave off any emblems on the body (also known as the "euro-look" where less is more as opposed to the j-spec style where more is...sometimes gawdy). "sleeper" mode is my style.

personally, in seeing the exhaust in person, i dont like it. i know it gives good gains and a nice sound, but the look of it in the back just disgusts me. one thing, i cant stand the muffler at the very end and how big it is, its like a 6 inch round exhaust. not to my liking.

yea dude its coming out nice! Good pick for the exhaust! But, the tanabe badge has to go...to me it ruins the appearance of the car, you don't need it there. The TRD looks fine though.

i love the exhaust...gives more low end power.these are the only pics i have right now...its pretty much stock though,ive intalled TRD springs, painted the rims gunmetal and painted the calipers red. im going more for performance. i feel that a car should be fast before it "looks fast". grin

I'm going to get them powder coated black... I wanted them to be black to begin with, but they don't sell black wheel paint.

Yea, I agree with JAIMEJAMES. To me IMO, stickers on a car look a little ricey. If you were to keep one, keep the TRD emblem. But lose the Tanabe and the AEM stickers. Besides that, I like your car...especially the rims thumbsup .
