Installed window visors. So happy I did! From Procivic. Super easy install (after an hour of being a dingbat)

Nice. Are they semi smoked or is it the sun hitting in a certain angle? Thanks

Washed the R today which gave me a moment to appreciate the new Remus exhaust I had installed last weekend. I wrestled between the carbon fiber tips and the tips that look like the stock exhaust, and I ended up going for stock-like. The wife put up less of a fuss this way with lower cost, and I like the stock look anyway. All in all, it's a fun exhaust and I am just now starting to understand how to play it. Sidenote: Getting the original exhaust out of the shop was less fun -- picture attached for posterity in my friend's SUV. You guessed correctly if you believed his back door wouldn't close, and we had to move it to over his passenger mirror. Boy is that stock exhaust long.

As for the Remus sound, I find myself rolling the windows down at all times to hear the fun noises. Today I was at a stop light with a Mustang GT beside me and a crotch rocket behind him, and we performed an exhaust symphony for a couple blocks. It was marvelous.

So my issue was with the little nuts that come with the snaps, one side is flat and the other is rounded. Long story short I was trying to make them work in the wrong position. They needed to be flipped and then the clips worked perfrctly. After I got the first I did the others in about 20min lol
Thanks for sharing, sounds reasonable. I get the in track ones without clips so this dingbat is less likely to mess up after dry fit before pulling red steps off. Dealer put OEM ones on the R as closer.

I got nano ceramic tint Pinnacle series 25 all the way around except for the front window. And for the front windshield I got Air tint series clear

I don’t know about all that but many years ago I had M&M (before 3M) Robin Williams (not Sherwin’s brother) Nanu-Nanu budget glass tint series Juan (the installers name). For the front window I got Air tint Series Transparent and I guess that through the years it changed to clear.

Still waiting on the Cam to arrive got it from Viofo directly for a good deal. I think Im going to try the top so I do not have to remove all the trim around the hatch, and if the view isnt good enough with the wing ill move it lower.
So I mounted on the low trim itself, just to the side of the wiper. No good. I've ordered an off set mount from the dashcam store. Once I get it and install it, I'll post pictures and videos of both mounts for others to reference.

I'm glad you mentioned this. My new exhaust should be arriving in a few weeks, and I'll probably tell the shop to cut the old exhaust so it fits in the Type-R trunk.

Technically this was yesterday, but I autocrossed for the first time in my life with the CTR and won the novice class! I've probably just set myself up for a very expensive hobby . . .

Congrats!
Please tell us a bit more, how or what was the competition? What did you lear/feel about handling?
Hopefully there’s more to it than you lapping a dozen Versa’s with whale tails.
