Nice build, subbed.

Glad you went back to OEM chrome grilles, much cleaner imo. I did the same on mine and no regrets

Just watch your toes when wearing open-toed shoes while working on the M.

Car gotsome significant upgrades these past few weekends:

Finally got my Supersprint Race Exhaust from the crazy Cyber Monday sale on ECS. Best Christmas present I've received in a looooooooong time.



Here's the video of how it sounds: https://photos.app.goo.gl/HiPsagUSawRsBRbb2
Stock section 1 and 2 + SS race section 3
It does drone quite a bit, but it doesn't bother me all that much. I'll do something about it later lol. Thanks to androofoo for helping me do 70% of the install :3

Also readjusted my coil height and put in rear strut reinforcement plates before getting my new wheels on. Went to 714 Tires in OC to get them mounted and an alignment.





Some of you may have already seen in my other thread, but I had put bronze Arc8s for a 3-day temp. Looked amazing while I had it, but switched out to my hyper silver FL-5s with zero regrets. Fits perfect w/ zero rubbing. Running -2.5 camber w/ 3mm's in the front, -1.8 camber w/ 15mms in the rear.



This is how she's going to sit for a long time. I am content.

Next up is Autocross this Saturday at Auto Club Speedway. In lue of preparation, I did a quick oil change using the Schwaben Fluid Extractor and it's awesome. You can stick the tube in where the dipstick is and just pump a few times and it'll go by itself. As a girl, you can say I appreciate not having to jack up the car and pull out the drain plug haha. Although near the end, I had to get a little arm workout in because there was no more pressure.



Excited to take this thing to its first autocross! Trying to get a brake flush in too, but not sure if I'll have time.
