Love the pictures of you driving the back roads! I think this car is awesome. I so would love to have a Type-S clone.

I really love how the OEM Premium ones contour to the shape of the floor when going over the humps.

I'm looking forward to more pictures of your car.
For the driver side, it sits in nicely and quite honestly doesn't move much since it has the two plugs to help hold it in place. On the passenger side, it moves a bit but I blame it on my most frequent passenger (I've never mentioned this one to my fiance since I've already "reminded" her on multiple occasions to not slam the door and trunk...among other "rules" I have for the car. Trying to not annoy the crap out of her). I do have bride rails and I think they also help keeping the mats down. If you're more OCD than I...then yeah, it's going to bother you that they don't contour completely with the hump.

If I take more pictures, it'll be with my awesome iPhone. I was fortunate enough that forum members actually wanted to take pictures with their cameras when they saw my car at the dragon event.

Is that a J's hood?
Thanks. It's the AUTHENTIC Seibon J's Type-S hood.
I'm willing to spend the money for quality parts but when it comes to CF/FRP body panel parts, I'm very gun shy. I also wasn't sure how it would look since this was not my first choice of hood in terms of look. I wanted the ASM hood with the little hump but I'm not baller enough to buy it.

Thanks Pete! You know this car would not look this way without you and your car A.D.D. nature.
But I'm glad you're the way you are because I wouldn't have driven 16hrs to meet you.

I went a little overboard and bought four professional photos from two different vendors. I spent a whole week deciding which ones to buy. Maybe it'll look different next April when I attend the event again.

So with the soft top...I'm on the fence selling it and buying the CR tonneau. I really like the look of the CR tonneau and want to complete the CR look but I also like the ease of going topless. Hell, my fiance already asked me how we will go topless next spring/summer if I sell it. I told her, we will need to buy a family convertible that has enough space for a baby-seat. She actually said, okay, let's do that. There's no such thing right?

I'd keep the soft top. There is nothing like the ease of going topless.

Keep the softop. When the top is off I agree the CR tonneau looks amazing, but no soft top is a hassle and def prevents me from enjoying the CR anytime. I have to be more calculated and I have to plan my drives now if I want to take the hard top off. No more drop top anytime

What I do with my down time at work is not good. Bought a few things and these are the first to arrive. Damn gotuning for stocking everything ASM.

Thank you. The nice photo's are from other people with capable cameras and photography skills that I do not have. I'm just glad I have them for my own keepsake. I love the CR aero, definitely makes the car more aggressive looking. Very much like a toy car though. Every now and then when I sit at a light, I get a 5-8 year old kid (boys and girls) pointing to my car and telling their mom/dad, "I want that car. Buy me one."

Yes, they are very durable. The patch on the driver side right by the pedals is a must. That's something that the OEM floor mat missed dearly.
