You're gonna regret that very soon if you daily drive the car...You should black house those headlights

03-16-2010, 06:24 PM
you think so??
hmmm i do daily drive it... for now since money is a factor the Seats will go on first

blacked out housings?.. i was thinking CTR headlights.. i know they look different as the CTR headlights are still black chrome...

I had my EM1 dumped low like that last year, ride was too harsh....went back up to where i can get my fingers between the tire and wheel well. It rides so much better now :)

Car looks good low, but we don't have roads like California, especially seeing you live in Edmonton :D

roads should no longer be an excuse for people. Everyone says there roads are shitty:dunno:

nice lookin car, IMO the back needs to come down a bit more and it would be better.

clean car!

JDM recaro's are kinda played out now with EM1's
i like the USDM ITR's since i can get them once my buddy picks up his ITR seen alot of cali cars and also van and alberta cars with JDM recaro's or CTR Recaro's i want something different not many ppl have USDM ITR seats in their car. Plus my whole interior is getting worked on by me and my dad.. getting rear seats to match the ITR's and black interior instead of the shitty grey

btw you already have your summers on?

sadisticmrtwo
03-16-2010, 07:26 PM
yes the summers are on :( but i havent any issues with them.. i drive to school and home.. no pushing the car at all anyways..

its not bad here actually..

03-16-2010, 07:27 PM
what kind of springs/coils are you riding on?

my car is that low too. driving on roads isn't so bad, but speedbumps and steep driveways are a nightmare (especially the market mall underground speedbumps!! :guns: )
it's not so bad for me because i'm riding without the front lip on right now.. but your lip will hit everything i imagine with that stance.

only time i hit anything with that lip is if i come head on up my drive way (which i never do ever its a habit) or stupid ruts.. but havent had any issues

I wish your front lip good luck. Mine is cracked a bit near the middle of the lip. I had mine lower than it already is but had to raise it a tad bit because stuff was breaking too often and I didn't like that :thumbsdow

love the look. the pictures most likely do not do justice.:thumbsup:

sadisticmrtwo
03-23-2010, 05:20 PM
oh it adds kick to the car haha

when we were doing the shoot we went to few different spots from 1230-430 and it still wasnt enough for them

they wanted to go on more but due to the lack of time and plans i had we cut it short

just standing there watching the guys play around with the car was awesome! and i've never actually stood back and admired how the car looked till then.. so ya pictures do not justify the cleanlyness of the car

thanks!
hopefully like i said i'll be down in calgary sometime this summer for sure the weekend of june 1st to 5th i have a wedding to go to for my cousin so the SiR will be shiney and ready for some meets

Get some spacers !!!
make it flush !

04-03-2010, 12:41 AM
Is it just me or does the trunk not sit properly on the right side (if looking at the license plate)? Other than that I like that car, I don't even like that red but that car makes it look good.

sadisticmrtwo
04-03-2010, 10:42 AM
spacers will be ordered.. as soon as i have time.. fenders will be rolled..

yes the trunk doesnt line up properly due to the trunk latch.. i gotta fix that.. .just need to readjust the latch

Makes me wish I still had my ek coupe.

Should add a rear lip to complete the exterior of the vehicle.

04-03-2010, 11:54 AM
i was thinking of the rear lip.. but.. i dunno.. seen some with and seen some without.. both are clean.. might stick with no lip first.. till maybe i can find an authentic OEM Lip

all you need to roll your fenders is a heat gun or torch and a hammer :thumbsup:

ok i've decided

i have a set of Buddy Club P1 SF in Gunmetal
17x7 4x100 i believe factory offset +45.

2 of the rims have been repaired and are fresh. one of the un repaired rims has a small lip dent. hardly noticable.

$900 firm with Azenis RT-615.. 2/4 have camber wear and about 1/2 season left.. :(

still good and no leaks

also willing to trade plus cash on your end for 15/16inch rims.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y267/ae86boi/SiR%20Sept26/DSC_0088.jpg

no rush to sell.. pm me wat you got..

will do a straight across if you have AP1 s2k Steering wheel and (1 of these 2) XXR510 wheels or Axis OG's wheels
