    Just to be nosey, how much does one of these set you back in Kentucky? They go between 10-12 for a good condition one here!

    Looking great so far though
    Around the same price i paid 13 for mine and it came with a 2 year re-certified warranty on top of the remaining year of factory warranty and i got new tires and rims in that price too

    Also bought it with 30k on the clock

      I'd buy one from you guys if that were the case, seeing as the ones here have 50/60k and rust on the undercarriage (thanks canada) lol

      I know you've mentioned it but I hope that you will still paint the side moldings, eye brows, front lip and rear bumper because it would make it proper maaad!

        You guys go by KM though right? so 50/60k is similar to mine i have almost 40k miles on mine now

        The door rubs, and the rubs on the front bumper will be painted for sure. I've been looking around and color matching everything looks a bit off to me. I'm thinking of leaving the front lip, the sideskirts (when i get them), and the rear bumper black just for some contrast.

        Made some quick chops to get the general idea:
        Badgeless unpainted grille:


        Badgeless color matched:


        I'm kinda liking the Black grille better but its close

          Personally i preferred it with the badge... Now it looks empty.

          But still good!

            When I said 50/60k I meant it in reference to imperial units (miles) where the k stood for a thousand!

            I like fully paint matched rabbits because nobody has them. Think of the R32, and note that everything is the same color, no moldings or mis-matched bumpers! But because it is not an R32, it looks unique and just as good!

            In regards to your grill, I think the black is maaad! However, I would do one think differently.

            Notice where the air vents end on each side of the grill? Well I'd leave the space to the right/left of the holes red. That way the blaaaaaaaack corresponds to a properly shaped black grill! If you don't get what I mean, I can chop it for you!

              Made a couple more chops here:





              i like number one but number 2 is a bit more realistic to what can be done

                  More parts! R32 reps with 8000k hids made by DEPO.



                  Looks like the bunny is gettin a facelift this weekend. Headlights and fogs are going in I'll make sure to take lots of pics. also got a good price locked in at a local euro tuner shop getting a chip tune and coilovers installed as soon as the tax refund rolls in. Full time student tax reimbursement FTW!

                    OK this was a big weekend got my new headlights and foglights installed. The most difficult part of the install was wiring the new foglights but thats not saying much 5 wires to hook up the rest just plugged in as it was an OEM setup.

                    Started by removing the bumper and all the old components:





                    In went the new lights and fogs:







                    Everything put back together:









                    Got them somewhat aligned once it turned dark (will align properly later). For reps the beam pattern is pretty good.

                        Thanks mate!

                        Did some more work this weekend, I got my badgeless grille painted and installed. I'm rather impressed at how it came out considering my lack of skill at painting. Don't rag on the guys that use rattles cans when done properly it looks almost the same as a spray gun. My only gripe is the filler pieces that came with the kit weren't well thought out I'll be fixing that sometime.

                            Yea i dunno i might just leave it. it will cost way more than im willing to pay to get it done professionally.
