Wow nice... looks extremely clean.. nice bling bling rims! haha
Cool way of starting out putting mods on the car .. I want to do the same, but nothing extreme. I haven't decided what I plan to do in the future but for now, I want to have a nice daily driver. I say Go with struts/sways and later into struts/springs ;]

Love the black rims and headlights. I really want to get the headlights like that too.

Thanks bro I appreciate the feedback. I did like the HL's at first but now meh I'd rather have the chrome housing painted black. They are bright though contrary to what some people might say.

where are you from when you mention 'burgh... Newburgh, NY?
Duquesne, it's about 10-15mins outside downtown Pittsburgh. It is right by kennywood park if you have ever been there?. I'll be in NY this weekend but unfortunately I won't have the scoob. Binghamton if I spelled that correctly

Haha yeah it is a Bernese! She's awesome. The painting was relatively easy to do. It turned out real nice too. If you look in the photo before I put the clear coat on you can see how much more shine it had to it but the clear coat defly helped and made it look more professional if that counts?

Well I have a little update. Last night I put smoke film over my corner lights. I also baked my stock HL's and now I can finally get the angel eyes off. I also ordered the V5/6 STI Mesh Grill Foglight Covers
from Bakemono yesterday, should be in soon. here's some pics. I f*cked up my one HL a little bit but did not ruin it thank god. You can see it in the one pic. But here are some new pics.




What do you guys think of the new HL setup?
