Yes they are sitting in the garage. I bought nspec's old lip kit. The front and rear was damaged and molded incorrectly. I decided I only want to put the front bumper on for now because I'm not slammed and on aggressive wheels yet so I don't think it will look right until then.

I might the rear bumper still has to be repaired and the side skirts only have to be scuffed then they are ready for paint.

Well I just left the body shop a little over a hour ago we finished everything it looks great! The parts are staying in the booth over night to cure. I'm going to wake up early and put everything on then I will have my car ready for the springfest car show tomorrow.

They're will be a few good photographers there tomorrow so I will have plenty of high quality pictures soon.

That trunk lip you have on your car, is that the M5 styled one? And if so, where did you get it? Those cheap ebay stores or an actual oem one?

The guy I bought it from on here said it's a bmw M5 spoiler. He did the bodywork himself also. I only had it resprayed to color match my car and fix a small scratch on it from shipping. I'm not 100% sure I'm only going by what he said.

I rolled my rear fenders and trimmed the bumper tabs last week for more tire clearance since they rubbed a little with the new tires.



When I was in NY this past weekend for a family event. I had the car hand washed at a local place on SI since it was filthy from the car ride up there. I figured I snap a quick picture since I was bored waiting lol.

I dig the trunk lip .
I would debate a tint on the clear part of tail but maybe not since the rims are chrome. But very clean .

Thank you! Yeah I was thinking about blacking out the trim around the windows and lightly smoking the clear part of the tail lights but never did it. I think it all matches with the chrome in the headlights, wheels and the exhaust.

My thoughts exactly . If you went with black rims than yeah I'd say do it. But for now its perfect.

Agree 100% I still like the blacked out look also. My bro is going that route with his 02 cl-p. Which is my old car before I bought this one.

Here's a quick two pictures of his car after doing the matte black vinyl wrap on the window trim. They did the door handles also. They also wrapped the woodgrain trim in the interior with a brushed stainless vinyl and it turned out great!

lol, it looks like those flat center armrests are showing their age on both cars. The DIY link below shows how to refurbish them cheap.

/forums/third-generation-tl-2004-2008-93/re-cushioning-flaccid-armrest-639974/

Or, they can be had online for $157.76 each.

Yeah they both are old and flat lol! I haven't really told anyone yet but I plan on getting all the seats, front center console lid, steering wheel, door panels, and rear interior quarter panels re upholstered.

I want to do red leather with black stitching on the seats and console. The steering wheel and shift boot will be new black leather with red stitching. The door panels and rear quarter panels will remain pretty much like oem except for the center parts where the leather is perforated will be red. It will look very similar to how the bmw's are with the red leather option. I love the way it looks!

Very similar to this photoshop just so you have a idea.
