Not talking about the S! I'm talking about Sebring, it's a boring colour.

Thanks man! Your Integra on HT was what made me go with RPF1's in the first place, haha.

Too keep this thread somewhat relevant and motoring along, I recently bought a set of Skunk2 lug nuts in black to replace my blue Rays ones. Small and rather pointless update, I know, but the two tone blue going on with the rims and the lug nuts was driving me nuts. No pun intended.

Sadly, my wheels have now faded to a mag purple due to the heat from the brakes. I think I'm going to have to talk to the powder guy and see what he can do, as the colour is now nothing close to what it was originally.

I actually prefer the faded "purple" instead of the blue. The blue was a bit to bright IMO and the purple looks more subtle.

Thanks guys.

Figured I'd do a really small update now that I have the car parked for the winter.

I really want to have my wheel re-powdercoated since I can't stand the purple and disassemble my suspension and press in new bearing + extended studs at work, so I can run a 5mm spacer in the front and a 15mm spacer in the rear. Option two is sell these current wheels and try to find some white Regamasters in NSX specs. I also have a set of 225/45/17 Z2's coming in soon to replace my worn down Z1's that I still have on the front.

In the mean time I bought a Berk HFC from a member on here since the china test pipe I had was absolute garbage and leaked. Even though it's used, it's still a nice quality piece! I gave it a few revs while it was on the jackstands and it already sounds heaps better, the loud factor is almost the same of the test pipe but now there's no smell (obviously) and no leaks.






And some shots before I put it away with a proper camera.

HKS dual buddies

I'm actually having fitment issues with mine - the driver's side exit is closer to the rear bumper than my passenger side by a few millimeters and it's bugging me. Guess I'll have to prop her up someday and do some hangar adjusting

Same issue with me! Mine is actually rubbing/melting the bumper on the drivers side, but on the passenger side the tip is centered in the cutout. However I had the same issue when I still had the stock exhaust on pre-2012, I always noticed how the exhausted seemed like it was shifted over to the drivers side.
