History
I drove the EX, after driving it for a year I was getting a serious itch to start upgrading the performance, and I knew that the 2.4 wasn't the platform to start with. So I upgraded to the SX and changed the color from titanium to black, and now metallic blue. I feel sorry for the 2.4 peeps, they are missing out, the SX is big boy pants.

Sound. All mods to date have been under the hood or cosmetic, haven't started on the inside yet and probably won't for a while. My ole lady's gettin aggro over the $8k i have spent to date.
Wheel and Tire
Falken RT-6 Wheels 20x8.5 (matte black wraped)

Future upgrades: KSport Big Brake and Caliper Kit. I wouldn't mind if Brembo decided to develop theirs, Geneis gets them but we don't. I have the cheap Brembo covers and the MGP covers. I took them off after a week because they looked to fake. I'll just have to settle for caliper paint for now.
