Your ride is one of my favorites on the site. Hate to see that you are covering that beautiful polished metal metallic paint but you may have something even better up your sleeve.

I looked for wheels for some time and jumped on a set of Volks. And I was glad I did.

I went to Evasive motorsports for Volks center caps and valve stem caps.

Had the wheels mounted at Rim and Tire center in Garden Grove, CA. Great group of people there. Didn't scratch a rim.

Specs:
18x8.5 +30
18x9.5 +40

Cool stuff. I'll be following your progress for sure. Thanks for the spacer help btw. Should be arriving Monday. Injection intake is next on my list (or at the top at least) but I'm mainly looking for a deeper sound when accelerating from a stop. Let me know what you think about yours in the sound department.

If you don't mind me asking where did you find the recaros? I've been looking for the blue dc5 recaros and ebay seems like the only place I can find them and I'm worried about dropping that much change and getting fakes

A wrap?! A wrap?! I'm intrigued. I see your car everywhere it feels like. And I love it.

Look up used.racingparts on instagram. He has legit parts from Japan and ships them over from East Asia (Thailand). He takes pictures of all the tags so that you can get everything verified before purchase. If your in CA, he has your stuff shipped to you in a couple days (including clearing customs).

Car is officially in for surgery.... Full Wrap by Elite Wraps in Arcadia,CA.
AND...... FRONT SPLITTER AND DIFFUSERS by AEROFLOW DYNAMICS

They are fully sponsoring my car to develop a front splitter, side and rear diffusers for the Hatchback!!
They approached me when I was at the shop a few weeks ago getting my roof wrapped. Should be complete by Friday.

Before shots when I dropped her off this afternoon.
