Having purchased the car used with 34k miles on it, I knew I would have to do all the big maintenance that hadn't been done. Also, thanks to my little accident, upgrades were on the horizion.

I've got them on now. I'll be posting shots soon.I've thought about getting those in red. But I was afraid it'd be too much. I think my next wheels are going to be something flat black to match the stripe. Also want to add some sort of side stripe to break it up a little.
I ran into a small issue when the mechanic attempted to install the brake pads & rotors I had ordered. According to Summit, the kit I ordered was a match for my car. However, and I did not know this, there are two different sizes of front rotors for these cars. 12.6" and 13.2". When my mechanic called and said the front rotors were too small, I went back on the Summit Racing site and double checked. Sure enough, it says it's a match. So, I went to Powerstop's website. While entering my vehicle info, it asks me what size rotors I need. I chose the 13.2" since the 12.6" is obviously too small. Powerstop's page even has a link to Summit's site where I can order them. So, following that link, Summit says those bigger rotors DO NOT fit my car. After getting frustrated with this, I called Summit about it and explained the situation. They customer service guy was great and took care of me quickly. He had me on hold while he called the manufacturer to confer. It turns out that they do indeed fit and Summit would have to update their site. I was able to order the correct rotors and return the incorrect set. It was all settled in a matter of days. The best part was the bigger rotors were cheaper than the smaller ones!
