the very very first thing you should do is... get those spacers and lower the car

I would debadge the rear and leave the "L"... your car is black so the holes left from the emblems won't show as much.

You should also consider a used GFX body kit that is already painted black (cheap and easy).

And I wouldn't go red on the calipers... that's a bit played out... black with white decals looks much classier

Everything looks real nice. Skip the springs and go straight for coilovers! I agree with not painting the caliPers red and painting them black instead. It will look a lot cleaner and not as contrived.
Good luck, keep it clean!

sounds good. looks like i will be getting spacers this week along with an estimate for springs/coilovers. What kind do you recommend? And yes now that i think of it the calipers do seem a little bit much. Keep it nice and clean

gfx kit and BC racing or megan LP coilovers will close the gap from tires to fenders with no problems. instead of spacers would you consider new rims with more aggresive spec so you dont need spacers? Jdm visors are also nice. i mostly see wald spoiler with other lip kits like vertex, wald, or ings. not sure if it would be too big for just a GFX. 2011/12 head lights is also a plus.
