    Just whoring up my caR, a "work in progress" still.

    I bought this one in January. 6 Speed, 18" Pegs, sport body kit (minus front "winglets"), and 38k miles with remainder of factory warranty. All Rs have 4 piston Brembo calipers, 4C chassis/throttle response settings, amazing leather, 300hp/295tq, and AWD stock.

    Mods:
    Phuzzy Motorsports FMIC Kit
    Phuzzy Motorsports 3" downpipe
    SVR 3" exhaust with EVOLVE tip
    EuroSport Tuning Ultra-Flo Intake
    "R" Kelly Supplemental Intake Kit (feeds air from fog light grill to intake)
    18" Ronal R41 wheels powder coated black
    IPD HD turbo control valve
    QBM lower transmission mount
    IPD upper engine mount (converted to round)
    CarbonFiber Werks front body kit "winglets"
    Prosport digital boost gauge
    Custom Euro plate
    SweetGFX.com black fender stripes
    SweetGFX.com black caliper Rs

    I am about to order my ECU tune which will provide me 30+ hp and tq. Suspension and cosmetics will come next summer most likely.

    I have a UR under drive pulley, stainless steel brake lines, and Axxis ULT ceramic pads ready to install whenever I am not feeling lazy.

    Nice R, but I think it would look better without that front lip and a different set of rims. Some BBS LM's would look delicious on a stock bodied R with a slight drop. I'm not a fan of the stickers either, but to each their own. :bigthumb:

    BBS has pretty much bailed on making 5x108 wheels that clean the Brembos. They would cost me like $1000 each and I am not willing to do that :wtf:

    The fender stripes are a hit or a miss, but I believe they tie in the black look that I am going for.

    The car looks ghetto without the front bumper "winglets". The bottom portion of the bumper is black like the other trim and it breaks the lines created by the rest of the body kit.

    is it REALLY necessary for your headlights to have windshield washers on them?

    i mean is it for water or is it meant for like truck tire water kickup because i would not see myself needing a use for them in the climate/area i live in at all.

    Honestly, I could give less of a damn about them. There aren't caps yet for the R bumpers to fill in the gaps, otherwise I would have removed them already. The wipes on them are torn to crap too :mamoru:

    Nicest seats in a sedan? They're nice, but definitely not the nicest.

    The C63 AMG and ISF are two better ones that come to mind, but of course these cars are in different price categories:

    +1 on hating the decals, but very clean and tasteful otherwise.

    we could go nuts with examining seats of ultra sport sedans, but lets not. I retract my statement about the 'nicest' seats in a sedan. But, I will replace with 'among the nicest seats' I've ever seen in a sedan. I do think that the R's seats are better than the ISF (white shown). if I could post a pic from another site, I'd back up my claim (especially in the Atacama color). google is everyone's friend.
