Looks good. Except for one two things I really like it. Is this a V6 or turbo 4?

Thanks. It's a V6. I commute about 75 miles each day for work and the better gas mileage really helps.

Where'd you get that pull handle for the trunk? That's a great idea, and the net. I just put in a Husky liner and things really like to slide back there now.

The front lip really changes the look of the car. I love mine...except when I'm scraping the hell out of it.

Thanks for the comment. The trunk pull handle I ordered off of eBay. Item is found here. If that link doesn't work or is expired, here is the seller.

The net comes in handy. I went to AutoZone and got a basic cargo net like the one here. Because of the width of our trunks, I had to cut the center of the net out and reattach with black zip ties. I'm sure there are other ways to do it or find one that fits, but I've had it for a year now and it still holds up just fine.

As for the front lip, I hate it when it scrapes. I try and take most my curbs going sideways to prevent it from scraping. Thankfully it's black and matches the touch up paint I have.

Added Flowmaster American Thunder Axle-Back Exhaust. Very satisfied with the sound. Definitely a win.

Stopped by the old job and took some photos. Grateful to have worked at Laguna Seca.

Changed the side marker lights to the LED strip. Smoked them a bit to blend into the body. I can say I'm a fan.

Car is looking good! How are you liking that Flowmaster axle back? I bought mine a few months ago, and love it. Can't imagine the Borla sounding much better to be honest

I'm loving it. Makes the car sound as it should. Like you said, I doubt Borla would sound much different.

Installed HID headlights with a kit from Kensun. Went with the 55W 6000K.

Also ordered new front AND rear pads and rotors since the dealer wanted to charge me $730 just to do the front (parts $480, labor $250). Since this is my daily driver and not tracked the Power Stop Z26s' should do just fine.

Had the tires rotated last week and was told the lugs were starting to strip. Ordered some McGard's which should do the trick. Plan to swap once I change the rotors and brakes.
