Invidia Q300 exhaust today, great tone, not annoying at all. Also 27Won motor mount, the softer of the two. And a set of locks on my Whiteline Sway bar.. still fighting a nasty clunk and EVERYTHING is torqued to spec.

Im looking into that exhaust. Have to convince the wife that its a must get. How does it sound compared to stock? Im looking for a deeper tone but not that coffee can crap from the 90/2000s

Finally deleted the chrome. Still a few tiny spots of chrome peeking through where I cut off too much wrap, but not bad for my first try. Used one of those 3M wrap kits off amazon. Then replaced the center dash speaker with one I found on Crutchfield. Even this cheap, $30 speaker was an improvement over the dinky OEM speaker.

Deeper tone, not droney or raspy. Even with a hard rev, not too loud. You won't sound like a 16-year-old with a fart can.

That being said, it is noticeable in the cabin. So like I've heard people say the Type-R exhaust is barely perceptible... this one is there for sure, just not irritating. I'll take a video.

After the chrome delete and speaker install I posted earlier, I then proceeded to scratch the shit out of my wheel. The irony is I park close to curbs to keep my car from getting scratched lmao. Might pick up a replacement wheel off ebay I guess. Dunno if I can live with the mistake.

I found a good mount from Scosche to mount the Ktuner. I had it in a vent clip but it kept becoming loose. This mount is for iPads and it is very strong. Also, I got my phearable 1.5 tune. Haven’t loaded it yet. That will done on the weekend.

Been there, done that, but with black wheels. I now have the scuffer as my spare tire (black sharpie hides it pretty well). People seem to say the exposed aluminum can be buffed back to smooth. Haven't seen pics of any of those success stories. Maybe someone will share.

Also, you may want to ask the community if anyone is willing to part with one for a decent price.

OEM wheels are never cheap, but if you go that route, look on hondapartsconnection.com or one of the other internet parts shops. Usually about 1/2 -2/3 of the local dealer price.

Ok ill look into that. I def need a spare tire anyway, so that's not a bad idea.

I feel your pain. I'm in the same boat. At home and at work, I park on parking lots and ALWAYS park in an end space (as close as I can to the curb) to stay away from other cars. Unfortunately I've had my fair share of scrapes on the lower front bumper trying to get too close.
