Oh my god this is what I dream of doing to my car. Still pretty happy with it right now, but your one is truly an inspiration.

It's impressive how you smash this car with parts soon to be costing half of the car.

Thumbs up.

ace, you said in the op that you put short shit kit as one of your first mods. Mind sharing what kit you purchased and some feedback? I recently drove my buddy's 135 with short shift kit... quite a big difference, i'm not sure if I'm liking the shorter throw or not. gears also require a bit more force to put into place.

ive got the performance short shift kit and yes it requires a bit more force to change gears - but i like that i orefer having a ridgid setup compared to something washy...the throws are very short - again very much to my liking.. all in all im very happy with it and wouldnt have it any other way

Amazing car. I just fitted stoptechs and they are amazing on the track. You will be very happy with them.

What harness bar is that?

After looking at these photos long time just to find anything missing or feeling wrong...I failed! Well, maybe putting some nice pedals inside, why not green stitched custom mats as well or little silver turn indicator bulbs in the headlight cluster? You got the point man, I am jealous, wanna make it even more perfect than it already is, congratulations, it is a gem of a 1M.

thanks a lot guys for all those amazing comments...

i really enjoyed this mod and love the result. obviously we all mod our cars to make it fit out personal taste - but whenever someone else praises my car it just makes me so much more happy
good looking cars just put a smile on many peoples faces
