Thanks! Looking at some coilovers now. As for calipers, not gonna do anything to them till a year later where I'll fit the Brembo caliper+rotor kits on.

How did you get those 3 gauges in the middle?

There's a replacement center cover for the 3 (taiwanese make) sold over here. It's actually for a single-DIN head unit but comes with an acrylic plate with 3x52mm holes cut out.

East as in Asia, not Japan :) Our local version's dubbed the SP model for the 07.

Wow, those are great pics of a sweet car! I love the interior treatment; everything is very consistent and the blue accent lighting contrasts well with the overall red. The red cigarette lighter is a nice detail! The pedals are awesome too! And do the LED turn signal mirrors come standard?

What country are you located at? I'm guessing either HK or Singapore, b/c of the right hand drive?

Thanks! The red cigarette lighter's actually an air ioniser, so it's actually functional as well. The signal mirror covers are not standard, they're add-ons. Over here in Singapore, we've got lots of accessories for this car, so dressing it up isn't much of a problem. Car decoration has pretty much become a culture :lol:

How are they on aftermarket performance parts? I know a lot of Asian countries are not so much fans of performance mods..... hence the huge accessory aftermarket. Looks amazing in any event.

Performance parts account for a fair bit as well. Stuff like SC or TC kits are less common as the government here has a whole string of regulations regarding car mods. A lot of enginebay, exterior appearance and undercarriage stuff are regulated, yes :)

I got those locally from a shop. We have lots of accessory stockists over here who carry such items. I got it smoked by pasting a layer of film over the indicator cover. They're taiwan made, if I'm not wrong.
