Welcome!
Nice start minus the headlights.. Get yourself some new headlights- OEM, Ecodes, or Helix brands are all great- you'll thank yourself!

Good work being original and not getting RS's. And don't lower it. You live in Kingston, lowering it is just a bad ****in' idea.

cool, thats what i wanted to hear
900 bucks canadian (like 800ish american) shipped with the toyo proxes 4's on them and the tuner lug's, *practically* brand new so i had to buy them, seemed cheap for 18's with decent rubber.
Noone likes the headlights though..i still have the stock ones but they are very cloudy. I kinda think the picture makes those headlights look lamer than they look IRL
