So i put on a new serpentine belt, wipers and cleaned some more. I also got some pretty basic hub caps, they dont stick out much they blend in great with the car. Im going for a very clean look, silver and black and replacing the dome lights, marker lights etc. with white or light blue led's.

I took out the grill inserts at the bottom, and am replacing the center grill peice with a black mesh one for an even simpler cleaner look, black head lights and tail light assemblies, black rear emblem to match. If seen from a distance i want it to appear stock and as you get close youll start to notice the details like the grill emblem etc.

The biggest mod of today is the exhaust. I did a resonator delete and replaced the stock muffler with a flowmaster...yes it sounds ricy as fuck but it still tickles me when i rev and accelerate hard and suprisngly has a deepish tone also put a drop in k&n. I had them put a simple 2.5" turn down pipe but cut it so you cant see it much like the original pipes keeping the stock/clean look.

Getting rid of those hubcaps when the originals come in...took off the lettering from the back and waiting for that black emblem to come in still. Cant wait to put the new lights on etc. Should look pretty clean.

If i took a video it would sound terrible. However it sounds (seriously) EXACTLY like Paul Walkers Eclipse minus the turbo whistling of course. It has has a little backingfiring noise when letting off the gas, but the tone is identical.

BRUM BRUMMMMMM

Ecstuning is a very popular website that sells aftermarket parts for German cars. They also make there own performance parts.

I bought springs and a dogbone mount from them
