Stage I tune, turbo back exhaust, wheels and tires


To have some more fun with this, I'm going to add what I actually do to my R...

1. K-Source Twin Pack Spot Mirrors - $10.99
2. APR Stage I tune - $703.95
3. Tenzo-R Concept-9 (gloss black w/ machined face, 18x8) wheels, and Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires - $1888.56
