Looking good as always. The lip is awesome! Going to leave it black or paint to match?

Did that dent add any horsepower? I bet it improved aerodynamics so you can fly fasterer.

I'm gonna leave it black. I like the black look better for some reason. That dent didn't add any horsepower but it is definately taking away some coolness points

Yuck. Dents and scratches - an unfortunate byproduct of "everyday life" for an everyday driver.

The lip looks great, though!

So SC u got the H&R springs on right? How do they ride/handle? How much did u pay 2 have them installed cuz KoP lists their install price 4 springs @ $425 including 4-wheel alignment. Thats double the cost of the springs. Also did u get the K&N Typhoon or u still using the Perrin? And if u went Stage 2 way long ago why didn't u update your gallery info? How bout updating your avatar 2, thats so last month. Cmon girl, get w/it.

Sorry! The springs are great. I bought them from allsprings.com cause they had them in stock. When they came in I went to Autozon, rented spring compressors and had a friend install them for free I LOVE THEM! They literally ride like stock, but obviously stiffer around the corners. I don't have the Typhoon yet, so I am still using the Perrin. I will update my gallery and avatar for you sweetie

No I got the map for my Perrin. They told me when I get the Typhoon to give them a call back for a different map.

Oh, after that write-up they posted that I sent u, I'm surprised they even sent u a map 4 that. If thats the case maybe u should just save the $200 cuz if u don't notice a difference w/the Typhoon I'm not takin responsibility 4 it.

I called them up and they told me that the Perrin isn't necessarily bad, it is just hard to tune. They have also heard of the pip collapsing when intaking air......which to me doesn't sound good, but oh well for now

I love your license plate. To get rid of the swirls, I use a Porter Cable Orbital polisher and all Meguiars products. In your case I would clay, use some M80 polish (for tougher clear coats, I would use M82) and follow through with two coats of your preferred wax ( I like their Next Gen stuff).

Here are some pics of my before and after results

Before (picture taken in full sunlight)


After (picture taken in the garage, taking it in full sunlight would be too bright) I was able to pull out the oxidation, minor scratches and stains. Unfortunately I couldn't pull out the deeper scratches.

I've gotta be honest with you. Beautiful car, but as a new LGT owner as well ('08) Tthe switch from dual exhaust to a single crooked fart can makes me cringe. I'm sorry, but that was a horrible decison.

On the other hand, totally dig the vanity plate. I'm trying to think of something unique myself. I've got time though, still have dealer plates and <500 miles.

It was not a horrible decision for me at all. It was all I could afford at the time and we proved it actually to be more efficient......not by much but it is. To each their own......until I stop buying formula and can afford an aftermarket dual I love it.

Just an opinion Not what I'd do but what works for me does not necessarily work for everyone. It should though
