Decided to order a few things while the vehicle is on the shop. HKS HI-power Spec-L Burnt Tips catback. and AVID1 AV20 17x8 +35mm wheels. Will post pictures when both are installed. Will be selling my NVIDIA Q300 Catback once the new catback is in.

Wheels are in! Avid1 AV20s 17s. The spacers might be a little too wide now but I’m digging the new look.

I go back and forth on the louvers with both the FRS and the 86. I even have gone as far as have them in an online shopping cart but have never quite been able to give that last click.
So so on the fence but those look good I may at least put some in the cart again.

Thanks! Those were actually very cheap from amazon. Aishun Dtouch Racing Side window louvers. I must note that I lightly sanded and painted them prior to installation.

HKS Hi Power Spec -L is in!! Came in way before ETA. I’ll upload a cold start and warm sound. So far it sounds amazing. Pairs excellent with the double resonated FP.

What is the purpose of the gold post extending down from the body?

Edit: I'm guessing it's the rear bash bar mentioned in your original post. Are those things supposed to be effective? If so, against what?

It is a bash bar indeed. With a jacking point for easier tire replacement when I bring it to the track.
