Tein Basics or VIS Invader Hood?
I'm trying to decide which one to get next, the Tein Basics or the VIS Invader Carbon Fiber Hood... I just want to make sure the Hood will look good on red with the TRD kit. The only thing is I have silver rims, and I just want to make sure it would still match good...what are your opinions? confused

I would drop it first, but I would get a higher quality coil over, like Tanabe or Hochkis. The Basic is Tein's entry level coil over & it doesnt have adjustable dampening, so the ride's gonna be pretty stiff. If you want an entry level coil over, I would go with Tanabe's Sustec Pro SS Type II. The only difference between this coil over & the regular SS is that the Type II doesn't have a helper spring, but you still get adjustable dampening & optinal front pillow mounts.
