I wanted to thank this forum for giving me the DIY knowledge and ideas for several mods. I have been a "shadow" member of this forum for about a year and is certainly the best! Now that I gotten a digital camera, I can share some pictures of my ride.

Over this winter and spring, I added a rear dust deflector, Dynamat Xtreme the inter and outer door skins and rear hatch, added the 10 upgraded weather seals (these two upgrades really helps with the noise), ReNNtech dual exhaust tip (I like this better than the single oval tip), chrome door handle covers, chrome tail lift, and Carlsson fender flares (used black silicone).

If you're wondering about the rims, they are Lorinser RS-3 18x10 with Pirelli Scorpion Zero 285/55/18. Thanks!

Everything looks very nice esp. the Lorinser rims, my only suggestion is either paint or replace your bumpers then it would look "awesome".

Agree. Are those Lorinsers---look like 17s?

Thank-you dewdaltz! I was looking for factory painted black bumpers for a long time. tsanjose just sold me his after he upgrade his bumpers to the newer style. That's my next mod ...
From my experience, non-factory painted front bumper does not hold up to the rock chips. After a couple of years they need to be painted again.

I will set aside the boundless rage I feel after Ray Allen of the Seattle Supersonics scored 45 points IN MY HOUSE-ARCO arena- to beat the Sacramento Kings last night.

Welcome. This a great place.

Game 5 is at Key Arena on Tuesday.

I am not feeling good about it.



[:(]

Thanks Greg! They are the same rims as yours. They look smaller due to the larger tires 285/50 vs 285/55. BTW, after I saw tsanjose and your rims, I liked what I saw, and bought them.

Way to go, John.... The exhaust tips looks awesome and I'm wondering how much it cost ?? I checked with * earlier and they quoted me 1K for Carlsson quad pipe which I thought a bit too much and out of my budget.

It's a tailpipe with polished stainless steel tips made by RENNtech. It was part of a of a exhaust package that didn't get used. I purchased it from EBay early this year for $175. The muffler shop charged me $100 to install it. The tailpipe didn't fit right so the tips was cut off and welt on to the existing exhaust pipe. Thanks! [:D]
