Hello Gents. I've posted pics of my car in the past but since then i've done quite a bit more modding, so I thought I'd just start a build thread. The pics you'll see below are of the car and how she sits currently, and frankly I don't think I'm done. At any rate here is the list of mods I've done and pics to showcase. Obviously i'm open to hearing peoples opinions and questions so please speak freely. Enjoy!

Red powder coated calipers
HW painted rear lower valance

Blacked out trim: grill, windows, mirror scalps, side vents, door handles, and roof wrapped in gloss black vinyl

Looks great! What's your opinion of the coilovers? I've heard a little mixed emotions about them

Looks awesome, curious if the tires rub at all at that size/offset. Would even consider taking some pics for you just to get a closer look ;-)

Thanks for the compliments, everyone.

They are a good value for the dollar spent, and when dialed in to your liking exhibit good body control. They are a little rough over expansion joints, but otherwise fairly compliant over harsh roads. Still tweaking but I'll update on my final opinion.

As of right now since my BMR parts have been installed and an alignment completed I have experienced no rubbing. I've taken pictures that I can post if you need visual proof.

That is absolutely bloody perfect mate! Perfect stance, love the wheels and wheel colour, painted rear valance looks amazing. I bet it handles like a dream with all those mods.

One of the nicest VF/SS I've seen, including over here in OZ.

Great pics too! Well done.
I have to adjust the front end links a bit as the steering feel is a little looser since the install, but otherwise it handles like a totally different animal. Thanks

Is it me or is the tire/wheel setup like $6500 alone?

No need for visual proof on non rubbing, I believe you.

Give me a heads up if you plan to attend any of the local meets, would love to see it in person.

A girl never tells of her price for the cost of beauty. I'll let you know of any upcoming events.

Favorite build on here, we'll done. I need to crack my headlights open to blackout the chrome, looks really good.

I wasn't actually asking what you paid...was just thinking out loud after I looked them up, I know what the tires cost as I priced them for the new car and then someone else I know bought a set and now setting track records while I put all seasons on...

Sorry, confused your question mark for a question mark.

Also, the last time I saw you i do remember thinking that you drive like a girl ;-)
Touché. I drive like a girl and you drive a girls car ;-)

My wife wanted the MDX actually for the longest time, I drove it, told her she can have it but I won't drive it. She felt it was worth keeping her driver around...
