seems like a good legitimate start, at least youre not looking to get lambo doors like that other guy haha. tires? not sure how the winter months are down in LA, but at the moment im running goodyear eagle f1's. other than that...i think youll have a pretty solid car after getting all those mods in

the only thing i would change are the brambo drilled/slotted rotors... there have been many discussions on how drilled rotors have more chance of cracking... so i would just get some slotted ones to be on the safe side... :rolleyes:

I personally would not get the TRD sides, I hate the groove in the middle and the front lip is so clean and smooth. Get some RMM sides IMO. Are you going to mold the kit to the car or just paint and install?

Also, I have the Brembo Drilled rotors on for a 6 months now and have had no issues but if you do get them you might want to powder coat the hubs or get rotors that already have black hubs.

I am probably just gonna paint the kit and install it for the time being.

APMonkey are your brembo's cross drilled and slotted or just drilled. I will have to look further into the brakes.

Thanks

I have the drilled only. I was looking for something with blk hubs so less rust shows and just looks better but at the time I already had the rotors and didnt want to pay for a new brake kit.

Anyway here is a OK pic from my phone, its been raining allot in Miami so you can see some rust and dirt but imagine if there was no black on the hub . . . ugly!

Gotta do a wash this weekend for sure.
