Dude, I think it would look better if your rear deck lid was black too. The wing is waaaay to big for my taste but hey, it's not my car right? To each his own. How about pics of the interior? I dig the exhaust set up, reminds me of what I have on my air cooled. The wheels would be all messed up if I was driving, sticking out like that :) You should get the S2000 antenna. Lets see, anything else I can critique :rolleyes: Nice custom color too. Sooo any changes under the hood? You should list your mods if ya got em ( yeah "if") :D

here you go LN
i was working on mods list & added a few more piks including interior.
the rear deck lid is painted black, but not completely. look at pik just above 1st interior pik. you can see how i tied the blk into the spoiler area.
thanks for all the comments.

Very nice ride, and quite an impressive mod list!!
Any particular year for the Eurospec headlights with the indicator inside? Are all euro cars sporting that, or is it limited to UK or Germany?:confused:
i actually used the "city lights" from actual euro spec light units, and wired my turnsignals to that fitting.
1998 nb stock headlights have a location for the city lights, but has to be punched out. it is pre-molded for the application though. good luck.
thanks for all the comments gang!
