History
I purchased this car in 2019 to be both a daily driver and project car. After 3 years of ownership I'm still getting a thrill out of driving this car.

Modifications

Drivetrain
Automatic
Interior
Wireless Apple CarPlay / Android Auto added that integrates with the OEM headunit
Exterior
SUSPENSION
- KW Street Comfort Coil-overs
- Bushings: Replaced/upgraded

PERFORMANCE
- Dinan Stage 1 Tune (93 octane map)
- Drop-in K&N air filter

BRAKES
- Powder coated calipers (Prismatic Powders - Illusion Copper / Clear Vision)

WHEELS
- Powder coated (Prismatic Powders - Gold Leaf)

TINT
- Windows: 10% tint all around
- Side Markers/Side Turn Signals: Blacked out
- Rear Tail Lights / Brake Lights: 20% tint

PAINT
- Gold leaf paint (matched to wheels): Front grill slat and logos
- Satin Black: Front headlight surrounds, front grill surround
- Midnight Black Gloss + Clear Coat (OEM exterior color): Door handles and rear door handles
- Recommendation: I would either replace trim pieces with plastic of the color you'd like or use vinyl wrap. There is too much wear and tear to paint anything outside of the body on the front of the car.

VINYL WRAP
- Satin Black: Window Trim, Tail Light Surrounds

FUTURE PLANS: Eventuri all carbon intake, Dinan ignition coils, possibly exhaust (unsure what brand/type), limited slip diff
Audio
Stock - No plans to upgrade
Lighting
Halogen to LED conversion: Front/side/rear turn signals, reverse lights, brake lights

Headlights, driving/front fog lights, parking lights, and most interior lighting was already LED from the factory on my car.
Exhaust
Stock exhaust, but the tips have been powder coated satin black. Short-term I plan to paint the rest of the exhaust satin black w/high heat paint. Long-term I may swap out the exhaust for something else (undecided on what brand and if I'll do full cat-back).
Wheel and Tire
WHEELS
- Flow One Racing Spec - F2 (18"x8"), 45mm offset

TIRES
- Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 (225/40 R18 92Y XL BSW)
