Injen Exhaust update: Picked up my car today.
New ETA for an installed exhaust system is 3-4 weeks!

I was happy to find that they were testing fitting other parts on my car. Exciting stuff coming.

And there was a surprise they left under my hood.... New Polished Cold Air Intake!
Now you can sell me the black one!

Well if I did.... it wouldn't sound like the finished product.
They tack weld everything in place and make sure to check clearances and such.
Then the real product is mandrel bent pipe with full beads of weld.

ARK has some nice exhaust. But their market caters to the KDM guys.

Saw your car today around 5pm on the freeway I believe on highway 22. Looks good. I remember doing a double take bc I had not seen a hatch in the wrap color and had to think for a second where I recall seeing the car.

I don't think it was me. I hadn't left work yet at that time.

An impostor perhaps??

The problem with black is the body lines are hidden. White less so.

Gray/silver is the best for body lines. I don't mind blue either!
