not going to tint them but getting them professionally retrofitted. front is gonna have uhp rings and hid bixenon projectors 6000k and for the tails im gonna replace bulbs with LED panels. both headlights are going to have dark housing but NO TINTING.

also going to go a few shades darker for the window tints and going to do something about the chrome lining on the side and rear bumper mouldings

shadowlining the chrome window trim is going to be a b*tch though.

forgot to say that most everything is gloss black...grill, shadowline trim, rims, window pillars....many people tell me to do matte black but that is why i didnt go that way because so many people go the matte route...i dont see much gloss black anymore(not sure if its just me who sees this) so come this spring its gonna be a lot of shiny darkness lol

that was the first mod i planned to do but the end of my driveway is pretty steep and as it is right now i have to drive very very slowly to get up onto it so a drop would make my life very difficult....i need to move i want to drop this car so badly

I also have a buddy who cant lower his Rsx because he has a weird 'dip' on his drive way ... He scrapes his lip all the time even though it's basically a 4x4 ..

You should re-do ur drive way so you can lower your car lol jkjk

funny thing is that it was worse before and then it was "fixed" to barely get a stock height car up haha


also the rims went to powdercoating last weekend so too late... some people love chrome, some love gun metal, some love pink..to each is own

I like the way the rims are now. Don't powdercoat em. Do it after u black it out and then drop it. If you still think u need to powdercoat them after u lower it then do it.

I'd like those rims on my e36

Gun metal color on the rims with a blacked out car would look wicked
