How often do you drive it?

One side of me would want to drive around in it all day but another would want to keep it in the garage because it is so beautiful and clean and wouldn't want to risk it getting dirty or a scratch anywhere.

Looks great, but I think I prefer the last set you had.

Also, what mirrors are those?

don't worry... I still have the other set which will be my mid-summer change. The mirrors are made by Carbon 6. They are hand made carbon fiber GT-Style mirrors. I have set #2 of 13 total made. They take about 2 weeks to make a pair.

I REALLY love this setup and fitment. I think honestly the fitment is the best I've ran thus far. I'll be tracking the car in early June so gonna change up the tires/wheels to my Advan RS'. After that, may go back to the 18/19 RZDF's..... but we'll see what mood I'm in.

Few new shots from a friend, check out his flickr.. he has pretty cool automotive and club style pics.

nice Synth. Did you change the mirrors yourself? I only ask cause I have a set of Procar mirrors I am thinking about installing.

Also are you going to NSXPO?

Quick update and a few pics from the track. This was my first experience, but I learned a few things-

1. People seemed to like my car.
2. I'm a pretty shitty track driver.

I taught my friend how to use my camera and put the settings on a semi-auto mode. I did some post production/processing to get these pics to pop.

I have gone with darker wheels, but this time I think I'll try a classic silver look.
Actually those tires were falken azenis not really a crappy tire they hold up quite well, but he did have some monster sizing on them.

I posted in here at some point before, but man this NSX is just amazing. Love all the new stuff you have done to it. The car looks fantastic with any of the sets of wheels. Also mad props to you for taking it on the track. Hopefully you had a great time and really got to enjoy the car.

Wowow, I'm very impressed, I clicked on the NSX section and read this entire thread from the first post to last, I really enjoyed your pictures and your mods. Your car is incredible man, way to raise the standard and do things right. My next car will be more like yours, a solid perfect foundation to tastefully add to. Congrats and Bravo! Any updates!?
