Cops didn't like the tilted wing and lifted hood so I put the wing for sale and drove around with the stock wing and carbon fibre hood for a while.

Finally someone wanted to trade the wing for a used genuine Spoon duckbill in bad condition. So I sanded down the Spoon wing and took it to the paint shop for a new layer of clear coat together with my EK9 rear lip which needed new paint.

Too bad they messed up and also painted the carbon wing...

Sold the wing and the carbon hood a few months ago. I have a carbon Type-R wing now but I'm not really convinced on how it looks on my car. Still have a OEM EK9 upper wing so I'll probably get it painted and put it on the carbon base plate soon.

Also sold the Sprint Hart CP's, they were 15" and I couldn't get in and out the garage without scraping. I'm driving around on my winter wheels now, spec98 reps.

DC2 Recaro's are sold to, been replaced by these:

Still a lot to come and a lot laying around here (new valve cover, ordered new front strut bar and cooling plate and sold the PW:JDM stuff, new mirrors, EK9 head lights etc, maybe some EK9 window visors soon...). For now, I'm happy with the power the stock B16A2 brings. Maybe next year some stage1 cams...

Update: Sold brown EK4, bought yellow DC2.

I live in Belgium. Problem is that a lot of parts have to come with a certificate that says they are approved by tüv/goca. So JDM/USDM exhausts, seats, seat belts and suspension aren't allowed here. Carbon is forbidden by law, so are after market tie bars, lca's, sway bars, front tow hooks, diffusers, tilted wings, lifted hoods, sports mirrors (except M3 style ****), rollcages (rollbar is allowed), engine swaps, turbo on a non-turbo car, etc etc...

It's a real pain in the ass to get my car through the annual inspection. I also have to lift it sky high because we need to have 11,5 cm under clearance.

I think my car breaks 20+ laws as it sits now.

If they were 16" I would've never sold them. Time for a change, I'll probably buy some nice wheels again next year. Used to have Rega's to before I bought the Sprint Harts.

Thanks! Color is hate it or love it I guess, not everyone likes it but most people tell me it's nice. And it never looks dirty since it's already a dirt like color :))

I stayed in Belgium for a while, all be it when I was about 4 years old and only for like 4-5 months haha

Laws seem a bit harsh :-(

Thanks for all the kind words.
Here's another shot of how the engine bay was:

When I have some time, I'll polish the header again because now it just looks filthy.
