Default Tama05's Build

My name is Austin and I have had my S for just over a year. I purchased the car from Country Motors, SC last year on April 24th. When I picked the car up it was in great condition, had just under 29,000 miles and was not wrecked, plus was bone stock. The car was slowly modded at first nothing too crazy. I purchased all new tires about a month after buying it, Bridgeston Potenza RE760 and RE960, stock sizes. About a month after that I bought a K & N FIPK for myself as a birthday present. It got some tint and windshield tape removed, after that I enjoyed the car for the summer and in September was deployed to Kuwait for 7 months.

Updates: Returned home April 28th and got to FL May 2.

When I was gone I ordered quite a few parts for the S and was that much more excited about finally being back. All the things that were at my house when I got home, ready to be thrown on.

Parts



Tein Hood Dampers + New Battery



Buddy Club N+ Coilovers




My Dog checking out the new stance


That was May 3rd's day of work, had to leave early. Yesterday I got up and was ready to go again, unfortunately the day before I was only able to get one exhaust hangar and still needed to return my old battery so I went into town to another store and they had to order me the part for that afternoon's pick up. Went back to the house and proceeded.

OEM AP2 Front Lip + New Grille


OEM Rear Spoiler



Went through and replaced motor,tranny, and diff oils. Picked up my other exhaust hangar and threw on the new system.

Greddy Spectrum Elite


As the car sits now


Also have some Blue Samco hoses and new thermostat to put in


Tomorrow I will most likely detailing the car, more updates soon.
