Default Quick little update on whats going on

I get my Evo-R diffuser tomorrow and Aerojacket Type I Gt wing Wednesday and hopefully installed the same day so that's exciting!
I am really trying to sell my old subwoofer system so that I can use the cash right away for Swift Spec R's.
On a side note.. I am deciding between getting test pipes + short tails or Full Fast Intentions CBE. What would you guys suggest?

Just an opinion, but I think you should paint the front lip red.

Same lip on my car painted MB

Installed the evo-r diffuser today bought it off of a forum member and it was no pain to install. Looks good except for a mini gap in the fog light area exposing a bit of red.

Do you guys think I should go remove the plastidip from the wheels? or should I keep them black? I am also deciding on powdercoating them gloss black... I know everyone will suggest wheels but I am still in school and the budget is very limited.

Keep them black - If anything, order 1 can of "Glossifier" and take off each wheel and spray a coat or two til' they are glossy. I would assume the gloss also helps deflect dust, dirt, grime, etc..

Random materials get stuck to the normal black dip (standard plastidip black)

Heres what happens, you pay a good chunk of change to get them powdercoated. Then you accidently take a turn short and curb rash the wheel. You cant just dip over it. You will have to send it back in and have it repaired, resprayed, etc..

When I curb rash the Z (rare) but it happens, I EASILY cover up all the scrapes haha for less then $5 and 30 seconds of my time.

We are both in school - I assume both working. Save the $$ and wait for good wheels to pop up for sale in the for sale section

If your planning on leaving the front lip carbon along with the side blades(which I like carbon)
then leave the wheels black
