Delta's 2018 Still Night A-Spec TLX build

Hey guys. I posted in wheels and suspension as I am currently in the process of. My coilovers will be here tomorrow and hopefully in the next week or two I'll get my wheels. So I'll post pics of the progress here. I also did my system install this weekend and posted pics there. Here is the car just after the dealership programmed my remote start keys and did a "Spartan shield coating"

Mods, I suppose the other threads I posted could be closed and this one will be the progress thread for all? Sorry for the multiple threads. Been a while.

They are Stance wheels. I like a lot of Vossen wheels, but they are way too saturated on the market and I wanted to go with something different. I was bouncing back and fourth between Vossen and VIP Modular, but then I saw these and really liked them, so I decided to go for it.

Must be InCurve or one of those others...he chased me down in the black TL to use it for a photoshoot but it never happened...this was back when they were starting up.
I was like, shit...I should have taken him up on it!

What car were you in before the TLX again? I'm assuming you had taken an Acura break for a bit?

check out my Sig in my first post for some of my past cars. I believe this is my 14th car if i recall correctly. I didn't mod my 2012 TL or my TLX before this.

LOL...
wild is right...
your avatar never changing helped.

I ended up selling it to another forum buddy when I upgraded to the D7000.
in hindsight...that 30D with the nifty fifty was more than enough for the bs car photos I love taking.

Yeah it's a good camera. I would love a mark iv or v or whatever is out these days. I don't even look any more cause it's depressing.

I'll tell you what's depressing...
that I've gotten lazy and started using my phone instead.
And it's not because I can't tell the difference, it's because I used to upload to flickr ONLY with DSLR and now because photobucket is a whorebag, I upload from my phone to flickr and it's made me realize the quality is not terrible without being super compressed.

Thanks guys! Talked to the wheel company today. They said my wheels should be finished by Friday and they will have them mounted and balanced and shipped by early next week! Once I get the new wheels I'll get the ride height dialed in. then, onto my next mod I have in the works, but don't wanna speak too soon!

Can't wait to see the rims!

You check out the S-Factor diffuser kit? Looks pretty clean.

you're welcome, Here's the prices they emailed me:

" $200 front splitter
$150 sides splitters
$100 rear splitters
$45 shipping

If you take everything above I can do 425 shipped. They will come already prepainted in gloss black paint.

The rear middle diffuser is sold separately at 295 shipped.
Carbon fiber wrap is optional. "

thanks again! I actually already emailed them for pricing lol. you were much quicker to the punch. I might seriously get this kit, but I need to see the sides and rear first.
