More usless than the NB1 cup holder, what have no back wall to it so your brinks do backflips under mild acceleration? lol

Both are useless, so I'd rather just have the extra console space.

I think the chrome/silver **** inside works perfectly, not to much but just enough to look nice. I would have chosen a different **** for the shifter, but that's just my opinion.

Cars looking good, i like that every time I come into your thread its changed ever so slightly, in a good way.

Thanks man, I've got several shift ***** that I'm trying out. That one is by far the most comfortable and it doesn't get hot. I really like the skunk shifter that came with the car but I when it's on without the extension the shift pattern at the top is sideways and that annoys me. It also gets very hot.

Got the windows tinted on Friday. I still haven't given her a bath since taking ownership and she needs it bad.

I ordered some fog light bezels like these. I think it will look good with them. I'm also thinking about painting the Gv lip and continuing the stripe on it. What say you? I might also add some front splash guards.

I love that skunk2 ****. Nice size and weight.
The extention was a bit clubroadsterish but it kept me from punching my charger in the cigarette lighter when I went into 5th gear

Nice! Now I'm changing my mind and liking those stripes on your car. Very cool!

Yeah and need side skirts.

No, just a 5% strip across the top and 20% on the doors. That with black interior makes it very dark.

how tall are you?

i would not be able to see at all with a windsheild banner. (even the sun shades get in the way.

Im a fan of the un-painted lip... it gives it a little contrast (and trust me you dont want it painted with the amount of bugs, road grime and stones that will be hitting it)
