Thank you, much appreciated! Window tint and more Mugen parts next
If you still haven't decided on tint, spend the money on name brand ceramic. 35% all around and 90% on my windshield rejects more Texas heat than any dyed film % I've ever been in.

Here in our province it is illegal for tint all the way around, we can only do behind the driver. As for ceramic brand, never heard of it, not sure if they offer that here or not.

It's a construction, not a brand. XPEL, Llumar, 3M etc all make a ceramic film. If you're feeling brave, you could get something like 95% on your windshield and front windows and 40% on the back doors and hatch.

Installed the exhaust last night!!! So happy with the result, it's beautiful and sounds very deep at idle. I haven't driven the car yet will hopefully take it out today and mount the gorpo to the bumper for a sound clip.

Well I had the car out for about a hour and this exhaust is just a loud as my previous one. It's unfortunate because I love the look of it. Back to square one for this girl :(

Hi Holly, yes the J’s Racing exhausts are loud from what I’ve read... but supposed to be awesome sounding and looking. Are you looking for a quieter exhaust?
