Didn't care for the stock wheels, or the HFP 19 inch wheels, so I swapped them for a set off a Touring Hatch, with the black lug nuts too, the darker wheel looks much better. Also finally installed my red carbon mirror caps.

Carbon mirror caps look pretty nice. Still not convinced if I should get some. Do you REALLY prefer them over naked stock?

Just the thought of sanding any part of my car makes me wanna squeal. Looks good tho
I have sanded several areas on my car, including the hood. I worked in two separate body shops back in the day, so I am no stranger to sanding. I made sure to tape off the painted areas around the chrome before I started sanding. Didn't want to accidentally sand the wrong area.

Today I installed the vinyl chrome delete kit I bought from eBay. It came in a thick plastic tube so it wasn’t damaged in shipping. It was a little tricky at first but took my wife and I about an hour to install and for under $50 I highly recommend.
looks good..Do you need a heat gun with that like you do with rolls of vinyl?

Did this last week. My steering wheel is now misaligned and is turned to the left a couple inches but still feels great!
happened the same to mine when i installed the leather steering wheel. After 1 year like that, during the last service i asked the guys at dealership to check it an they simply adjusted a few mm the wheel angles by hand, no allignment machine, 5 minutes and now it is perfect.

Dumb question but how did they adjust it by hand?

Had my Greddy SP exhaust installed. Only had to wait 1 week for it to come in and I love it.

For the price its the best value, oh and it also does sound great.
