Yea, no question, Magnaflow was the direction I was heading until Borla grabbed my attention. My brother has magnaflow, so I've heard that one in person and I like it. But again, Borla is intriguing.

I purchased my Koni coilovers from WRD, and got them installed at Pacific German in Lake Forest, CA. I worked with Shawn the owner and it was super easy to talk to. I recommend them! Here are some before and after shots.

I originally got it as part of a group buy...it was through BKS. Everything came with the lights, so it was plug and play. Yes I did have to do some code work in order to get rid of an error.

do you even know what google is?

you said you don't know 4 times.. maybe some research would help you understand things, instead of asking everything to your feet.

and no; there aren't any led tail lights that doesn't require coding. you are changing the voltage rates. So, of course the car will throw a code no matter what you get. you code it to tell the ecu it has new tail lights..

tiggy the third, welcome.

It's been awhile since I posted, however nothing major has been done to the car, because I'm still saving to get some wheels. Did a quick photo shoot while I was driving, please excuse its dirtiness
