So here we go, from the very beginning...

The day I brought her home. She's a 6MT 2011 EX with nav:

First mod was the factory XM radio but I can't really get a picture of it as it's in the dash somewhere lol.

Second was the illuminated door sills:

Tint was next because it gets really hot here in So Cal. Got it done at Tint Pros in Huntington Beach. I went with 5% Formula One Pinnacle Ceramic Tint all around. The heat rejection is great and it doesn't interfere with my Nav or TPMS:

Next I got a Basis OEM lip and iJDMTOY 6000k HID fog light kit installed on the same day:

I had the lip on for less than a month then sold it because I bought a JDP kit. I decided I didn't want the JDP kit anymore because too many people had it lol. I never even put the kit on and sold it too. First performance mod was my HKS intake. The beginning of my HKS obsession as you will see:

Next was a catback HKS exhaust, P2R Downpipe, and Denso spark plugs:

I got my car dynoed with these mods:

Mods also helped MPG go from 37 to 41.5

I saw Hoi was selling his HKS intake with the J-speed intake box from Japan that I always wanted so I sold mine and bought his. I also added a Mugen radiator cap:

Added the white interior LED lights, license plate lights, projector reverse lights, switchback turn signals, and LED Diffuser reflectors from iJDMTOY. Shout out to Thura at iJDMTOY who is always helpful and really easy to deal with.

Went to Basis and came home with a rear sway bar (Which I plan to paint red to match the rest of my accessories), red steering wheel H, Mugen key fob, PWJDM washers and battery tie down in red.

More in the next post...

I wasn't very happy with my intake box because of the quality and fitment. Tony said he could make a better one and he sure did come through. I also got red basis radiator stays:

Starting to become a real build now. Lowered her on HKS coilovers.

I recently ordered 2 volk TE37sl's in 17x9 +22 for the rear. Gonna try them on up front first before I buy the next 2. Thanks to Roddy for all the help with choosing fitments and tire sizes. His car is one of my biggest influences. Glad I've been lucky enough to see it in person. I'm hoping my car will look like this when the wheels come in:

getting the HKS spoiler?
Naw, it's not really the look I'm going for. I kinda just want to keep it simple and OEM looking. The only spoilers I like are the mulsanne and american racing ones but a new spoiler isn't a priority right now. After the wheels I wanna get a lip and probably the noblesse diffuser but that won't be for a while.

Thanks man they are 17x9 +35f 17x9 +22r. The +22 up front was too aggressive for me. even my friends 17x9+30 that i tried i wasnt too happy with. the +35 works just right.
Yeah I knew that you had the 17x9 +22 in the rear which is why I ordered that size already because I knew it looked good on your car and Roddy's BBS. The next size down in the SL's are 17x8.5 +40 which I might just settle for. My biggest problem is that TE's aren't concave at the size.

Welcome to the crowd, although you are way ahead of where I am. Car looks great! I only hope I can come close to your numbs, mpg and hp. Great job! Thanks for posting.
