Dude those wheels are awesome. Excellent choice.

They really tie the car together. When you go rollin' with the hypercars you'll fit right in IMO

Sex on wheels. Love the new rims, they really suit your car well. Post us a clip of your Comptech sometimes... I love the face-lifted headlights

very nice, i prefer a little lighter wheels but overall the car is HOT!

the front needs to be a bit lower i think though.....more of a rake.

I was originally going to go with a silver polish, but the color just totally clashed with the spolier, lip, diffuser. I wanted someting dark, but not too dark.

^ Not really.... probably going to keep it somewhat stock. Next on the list is exhaust, NSX-R Chassis/Sway Bars, and then do the JDM navi pod.

fucking SICK synth. Man you are all class when it comes to modding cars. Your 350z and now this little beauty. Nothing is overdone or understated, and all using HIGH quality parts. I wish more people would follow your lead. "Sometimes less is more". Have you though about removing the Acura A from the rear? For my taste I think it would look better without it. Gives the tails one long continuous look. That's just my

^ Came with a 50% tint (weaksuace), so I'm not sure about having someone tear it off and re-doing it. Most likely I'll just keep it as is.

^ Thanks dude, I thought about powdercoating both emblems a gunmetal or black color... but may be kinda ricey... and not worth all the work.

^^ Well I have had 35% taken off and 20% done a couple of years ago, came out great. The tint shop would just charge you a bit more for doing the extra labor. I think if anything you should go with 35%.

synth, I will be in contact with you in a matter of days. I am in contact with a guy who is selling his 2004 NSX with some body damage.

I like what I see with yours and will be following NEAR your footsteps as I like the drop and am going after the same if I get it along with the lip and the diffuser.

Was wondering if you have anyting against me asking you questions about the places you ordered them from, prices and so on.

Let me know

Thanks

Art

artbran you have access to too many cars already, but hell...an NSX wouldn't hurt lol!

synth19 looks perfect. exterior styling needs nothing else IMO. if you ever drive near the northeast suburbs of cook county at all, ill be on the lookout.

again really beautiful, lovin the orange too

i actually think the 50 % looks perfect. just light enough that you could make out the orange leather interior. LEAVE IT

50% is absolutely terrible! With a light interior (like orange) it looks like it's not even there. With a light interior 20% is the absolute lightest someone should go.

^ I agree. 50% is the worst possible decision when it comest to tinting. Funny, I didn't even realize it was tinted for a week (that's how light it is in person).

I think 50% is pretty good to be honest.

Only reason is that i would like to take the engine cover off and be able to see the engine from the outside. Like how Chucks was at the meet.
