Not A fan of those Racing Dynamics wheels, but the Milli Miglia's don't look bad. K1's look at least as good while being much lighter.

Ambers > clears. If you swap please do the corners and sides, nothing worse than mix matched lights.

Not a fan of clear corners and sides they look ugly imo.

Back lights look way better in clear then amber.

Disagree about Ambers > clears... I LOVE CLEARS. But I 100% agree that if you do one set you MUST do all!!! Miss-matched just looks stupid (or you ran out of money)

Wrong armrest for your car. Original is nappa leather, that is not.

I know,

Planing on changing shift booth and handbrake booth with alcantara ones from rally road will also change the arm rest cover for alcantara one to match the mtech 2 steering wheel.





I absolutely want to keep all oem parts.

For the clear lights, it's a question of taste. I hate the 3 colour combo on the tail lights. But love the amber in front.





I actually find that clear corner lights look cheap.

Small order from ecs :

Mishimoto 66F thermostat.



Ecs water pump pulley :



Also picked up a cheap M tech II steering that needs to be recovered.

Looking for a place to get it recovered in alcantara and make it a bit thicker if possible.

^ That taillight looks cheap as hell because it is. Chinese led taillights look hideous on these cars.
