Since the headlight covers and rear spoiler are just to make the car more unique, I like it all!

Can you tell us how much camber you are running front and rear plz and have you modified your fenders.

Yup, this spoiler isn't for everyone. Definitely looks different and not as bad as many spoilers out there these days. Spoiler looks really good in person.

Yeah, he wanted to go with something different so his buddy vinyl wrap his car.

thanks VMR for the opportunity !! the trunk spoiler is just a temporary piece until i get the full trunk. New plan for the 2013 season. The car will look totally different by summer.

Ah, the 18" v701's, in gunmetal even. Those were the exact wheels I was supposed to get, one of the first people to get them actually. But after waiting almost 2 years on pre-order, and only getting 2 of the 4, I gave up and moved to 19's in matte black. An unnecessary hassle, but I think I made out better.

That car does look good though. I like the photography.

I agree. Gray on Gray would look washed out imo.
