    in this boat, but I had a limited and wanted the plainest looking sleeper out there.

    welcome :wavey:
  6. I like that approach! Honest and opinionated at the same time... let me ask you a question... Have you ever met an uncool Matt in your life? The reason i ask is because I have yet to find a guy named Matt that wasnt cool, and this was brought to my attention by a co-worked named Matt about 3 years ago, and I have been asking that question to every Matt ive ever met and none of them recall an uncool guy named Matt...

    nicad Yes I am a troll

    my ex-stepfather was an abusive asshole. his name was matt.

    I say ex, because karma caught up to him and he got squished being a shithead on his motorcycle.

    Fail on the body kit, but kudos to you if you like it!
  20. LOL You guys think I came on here to gain your approval or some shit... Fail on your comment! As stated before, its my car, and my style, now I just wanna delete the post and move back to the forums I feel at home on, rather than get my style bashed, without any constructive critiscism... Thought this was a forum for enthusiasts, not dickheads!

    Good constructive criticism. I agree.

    Personally i rate the body kit 3/10, the hood 3.5/10, the wheels 2/10, ride height 1/10.

    My constructive critiscism to fix these items would be along the same lines as B reel, paint the hood body color, paint the grills black, lower the car more and get an aggressive offset wheel that accents the exterior mods you have chosen.

    Right now your car has a mix matched look, aggressive/gaudy body kit that completely stands out against the rest of the car, made slightly better by choice in complementing hood and wing. But you dont finish the combination and made very poor wheel selection and carrying a ride height that is to high to really pull it all together in one package.

    That is about as constructive as criticism gets around. If you are sissy thin skinned nanny and cant take alittle heat, you wouldnt do well as a community member here anyways.

    Anyways, the secret to making any car look start at 2 very basic items. 1)appropriate ride height and 2)appropriate wheel and tire selection. Work on those and you will be moving up the latter quickly.

    Looks familiar.....

  24. OK so seeing as how I had the car lowered last week, it appears that I am off to a good start to acheaving your approval... :bowdown::rofl:

  25. Same body kit for sure!! I love it! And have always loved the aspen!

    don't worry about the troll...he's gone.

    It's YOUR opinion that matters to you. If the majority of people don't like the mods you've done to get your car to how you want it/like it, that's on them. I wouldn't get so defensive.

    Just keep this philosophy in mind:

  27. Haters gonna hate! You know you are doing something right if you have haters... Heres another pic of the side profile of the car for the enthusiasts:
  28. I still wanna space the wheels a bit and get some of the rear wheel flares, and hopefully that will cover up the gap over where the rear bumper meets the quarter panel.

    Gonna get the windows tinted soon too, any suggestions?

    Super clean.
    Did you make those headlights as well?
  30. If I were to be negative about any part of the body kit I would say that the side skirts are a bit too aggressive for my liking, but they look way better than stock when paired with the front and rear bumper.
  31. All exterior mods are manufactured at the eBay parts plant:rofl:

    yeah its all ebay specials... I cheaped out on most the exterior, but spent top dollar under the hood, and chose the right mechanic... KILLSHOT!!

    I would look at an aggressive wheel package with that aggressive of a body kit. Ditch those wheels.

    Not a fan of body kits but nice ride. Personally, since you got an inverted scoop, i would ditch the wing for a cleaner, sleeker look. I think the sti wing only looks good with the regular hood scoop.
