Winter is starting to roll in here so probably not too many upgrades over winter but the Five AD S7 wheels are already picked out with tires and just waiting for me to say yes.

The Evasive Downforce front and sides will be soon to follow. CANT WAIT!

I think it's the sunlight that's putting the excess contrasting light on the exhaust from a waist high perspective. I think it looks good from underneath the car.

What ATL_BRZ said. Please don't quote a post and keep all the pics in it. That's really annoying to have to scroll through them all twice, especially on a netbook with a small screen (like mine).

Thanks and yeah I'll post the picture I used. The pipe can be seen when standing behind the car but with the car being lowered and the pipe there with the massive tips I've gotten a lot of compliments in person on it and the sound gets just as many compliments.
