The car does look really good but it being blacked out really warrants a day time shoot with a brighter background. A brighter industrial backdrop would really make the car stand out. I really like the wheels too, I have the 527's as well in silver.

Droid daytime pic.

To answer your questions.

A friend of mine did the headlights with the same conventional method...baking, opening, replaced the lens with acura lens, removed the amber reflecters and sprayed it all satin black.

The calipers are red, not black.

Just an fyi....
Changed my tires recently from the 265/35/18 hankook evo v12 to 265/35/18 kumho ku36 which are much bigger than the hankooks. Car started rubbing everywhere. It's crazy how different manufactures have completely different sizes.

It's all with the tire size and ride height. no spacers needed. With My setup I rolled the rears and pushed those 2 bolts in the front upwards. Also the rear bolt where the fender meets the bumperi trimmed it a little and bent it upwards too. With the hankooks the roll was all I needed. When I changed it for the kumhos I had to play with the bolts.

Alright cool thanks for the help. I'm lowered on eibach pro kit springs so hopefully I won't have to move the bolts. Just roll the fenders and get the right tires!
