Quick composited photo I took showing off the new interior enhancements from Sweidit (https://www.facebook.com/SWEIDIT) They'll let you customize the pieces to your hearts content for mostly the same price unless you do some crazy rare material shit haha. I went with the V2 steering wheel in all black with a red leather center marker. The V2 is thicker compared to the oem and honestly feels perfect now as I always felt the stock wheel was slightly narrow in feel.

Also swapped out the gauge hood, shift boot and center console wing thingies/rails. Everything matches oem in fit and finish and I'd bet a big mac that most non ctr owners wouldn't even know it's aftermarket. Happy 2020! I'll be focusing on the motor and interior more this year to get the rest of the car matching up with the exterior. ;)

Varis cf hood is on! Got it painted through DTM Autobody in El Monte, CA. Next up might be to respray the front bumper as I got a bunch of rock chips from all the track days I've done. Then I'll get ppf installed on the whole front end. But as of now I'm cool with it looking beat up on close inspection since I drive this thing daily. Exterior is pretty much complete at this point. Onto more engine mods!

Looks fantastic nojeebs, really enjoying the build. Do you recommend DTM Autobody? Were they able to get the paint match perfect? It certainly appears so in the photos.

Thanks man! Yeah I would recommend them. They've worked on my Abarth as well as do the full paint and bodywork on my e46 m3 that I still own. The paint match is spot on but what's funny is that now it shows how my front bumper paint is slightly cooler in tone from the factory. Plan is to get the front resprayed anyhow since it's pretty peppered from tracking it. DTM isn't perfect but they're always willing to make it right until you're happy and that's why I keep going back to them.

Did some light painting in a parking structure last night. Took some creative liberties with the colors. I know I'm biased when I say this but shit the ctr looks amazing when it sits low for the streets. I'm almost at the point where this car is my favorite over the e46. @[email protected]

Took more photos of the ctr and the Sweidit interior pieces I got a few months back. I would highly recommend if you're interested in some oem+ or custom interior upgrades to hit them up as both Jin and his wife have honed their craft to give their customers the best experience.

Thanks! Sony A7II with the Zeiss 55mm & Sony G Master 90mm. Last couple of shots I posted are long exposure/light painted composites.

Sprint Filter intake system installed! This thing is on another level in comparison to other intakes just from the quality in build alone. I did some product photography for them to let them use as I believe they deserve more exposure on their kit for the FK8.

If anyone is interested in purchasing one just contact them directly as they ship worldwide. Retail is around $1850 shipped + import tax to the US depending on current exchange rate.
