Default CR-Z build. Slowly but surely. Couple mods.

I've had my CR-Z for 6 months now. I've done a little bit to it. I'll just show the pictures of the transformation so far. More to come.....

Day I brought it home:



First two mods. Head light and Tail light tint plus JDP CF grill cover:



Next mod was the Black Label Fabrication short ram intake powder coated black:


Then the Mugen CF shift **** with black stripe:


And last but not least, new shoes. 18x8 +35 F and 18x9 +40 R:



My next plans are to finish out the JDP CF set with the rear spoiler, rear diffuser and front lip. Then coil overs at soon as possible. I really think these cars look better with a set of wheels and some JDP or C West parts. I love mine!

Thanks. I appreciate it. I will have some coils real soon. Just waiting to hear back from the company that they are ready. I added the JDP Engineering carbon fiber rear spoiler last week. Sorry for the horrible garage picture. I don't have a good full length photo yet.

make sure to have the carbon fiber parts clear coated, the coating most carbon parts come with dont hold up for very long, they start to fade and yellow

So I've removed the rear spoiler and painted the faces RED. I've already traded my 18's for 17's and have a new set of 17's coming soon. Here are a couple pictures of the past months.

I liked the white faces more to be honest.

Looks good though.

Nice shift ****. I think the wheels would've looked better if it was a darker shade of red.

I finally got me a set of REAL wheels. Better pictures will be up soon. I need to get these lips refinished and polished out. They're pretty scuffed up and dull!

17x9 +38

Traded in my CRZ for an SI. I kept my Blitz so the CRZ got the stock SI wheels. Goodbye photo for everyone.
