2015:


Completed my Custom Exhaust w/ a 16" OBX Brand Resonator....The results are it did make the exhaust sound louder at lower RPMs and a lil deeper sounding too not bad for spending a total of $320 for everything including install vs. paying $500 plus for a direct bolt-on exhaust!

http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e1...psi87otmtg.jpg

Sound Clip:



Installed & took a cruise on these new KYB Gas a Shocks.....I previously had the Excel-G's those were good but got soft and wore out within a year and a half, when I took off the Excel-G shocks the rebound was bad on them, also i was rubbing bad in the rear over almost every bump & turn..I knew something was going on..After replacing them w/ these Gas a Shocks what an incredible handing & feel difference the rubbing over bumps practically disappeared...So far really like this choice!

http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e1...pse8rz3oyp.jpg

2017:

2 New things for Penny at the start of the new year!

Replaced cheaply made hood dampeners that came with the hood kit by Sokie Tech...they gas inside of them failed so found these at Pepboys a lot stronger ones I found!

Then replaced my Phillips Brand LED DRLs due to when getting murdered by a traffic cone I hit on a rainy day...Bought a new style LED lights to fit..Made custom brackets for them.

Didn't like how "dim" the LED DRLs were so bought a different pair...Similar to the old ones not as long in length...I like them better!

Good looking car, when thinking about eyelids don't leave the rear lights out. The rear eyelids were one of my favorite addition to my '04 3. I had the front and rear lids painted on with match body color...
