did somebody say red gtg?

Doin it slow and steady with small mods, it seems like your keepin it stock, but if you keep on buying small things every now and then, it adds up alot quicker thant u think, but it's fun, and people can spot your car out in a line, evern if they're all the same color. :)

Damn Gina....looking good. Where's the big scratch at on the dash? Is it something that a dashmat might cover?? That could be an option. :goodjob:
Funny story how that happened (more like stupid)...
I was vacuuming the car when i noticed just how much dust was on the dash. So I went to kinda vacuum up the dust when the top of the hose just made a *EEEEEEEEK* noise, right across the dash :( It's not very deep, and you probably wouldn't notice it unless I pointed it out. I considered a dashmat, but I just don't care for the look :eek:

Looks great Gina, go for those tails, I have them too, they aren't necessarily easy to install but well worth it! :D Red Rider got me through the install :bowdown:

A couple pics celebrating the holidays. I secured the santa hat with pins so it actually stayed on while I drove. Got lots of looks :)

I really liked your hat but I usually drive on the expressway and it would fly right off. I like your budvase. Are you a Link fan? ME TOO

I love legend of zelda games :) Link's my buddy, he dances around in the bud vase while I drive.

I drove for about 3 days with the santa hat on, even on the highways. It never even moved, I did a good job securing it. I eventually had to take it off because it rained; it got so wet it was weighing down the antenna.

Hey how did you get your spoiler to stay up when not in motion?????
There's a little button underneath the steering wheel that "deploys" the spoiler when you're not going the 90mph (or however fast you need to be going). I pushed it while the key was still in the ignition and when I turned the car off, it stayed up :)

red rider, geez I can't decide if I should buy those or the red/white OEM looking tails. I'm terrible at making decisions. Thanks for the help though, I'll def get in contact when I actually get something

the red and white tails would look good-you would not have any fitment problems. The gen 3 does give a a little contrast, but are hard to install.

If you plan to do your own install -i believe it would be best to go with red and white. The gen 3 look real good ,but again they are pita to install

You remeber what you said about our modlists mirroring each others?
Our cars are the exact opposite! I've got a 2000 Cyber Green 2.0 Auto, and you've got a Red 1.8T Manual! What a coincidence! Those red/white tails will look fantastic, even more so if you do the rear fog mod.

Well...at least they're both 2000 cars haha

Not really any "pretty" pics, but just a few things I've done recently. Just installed the Silverstar bulbs -- I love them! Something so small seems to make a big difference. Also included are my decals (with a freezing 32 degree hello! i look like wilson from home improvement hiding behind that camera), new monster mats, the peeling paint thanks to Geico, and my new toy :)
