    Haha "Be nice". If you enjoy driving your car that's all that matters. Since you asked what we think, I'll say that IMO I don't really care for most of the exterior mods, and the chrome gas cap on those cars kills me every time I see one. At least you have pretty well balanced mods.

    Like others have stated, I don't generally like much of the exterior stuff, but it's all tastefully done and goes together well, and I commend that. Take care of it, as mitsu's days are numbered and soon we're both going to have a hard time finding parts ('93 VR-4 here).

    Looks clean. I think those wheels done in gunmetal would look nicer that the wheels you PS'd on it.

    Does Rippmods make a supercharger for that? If so, I vote you look to to that.

    It does look good for a g3, I agree.

    But whenever I see a g4, I want to hurl. I hate that styling.

    The pins were already on when I bought the hood, cant do anything about it now.

    agreed

    Yes they do, but I cant afford it now. ANd if I were to go FI I would go turbo. The 4 cyl. reacts better with the turbo for some reason.

    agreed.

    What?
    de-riced the hood & pins. it gives people the illusion that the car have serious horsepower.

    Nix the grill, and throw some nice 17s in brushed aluminum. DSM sex it would be.

    I like it with the new rims. Definately keep them on the ride - very clean. Does the car have a short shifter in it?

    I think the hoodpins are ok, JohnnyZ28 is right, they are meant for fast cars. since he has a carbon fiber hood he would actually need them, well that is if he races. Also rims are always good. A supercharger would be awesome, but they are kinda costly. Have you ever thought of getting any type of bodykit?
