there's not much you can do with sigs on here..... so they end up looking similar no matter what you do. I just list brand names, cause it'd go on forever if I detailed every mod lol.

I got the SD heads and fogs from a member on here... they pop up sometimes, or check Ebay. All 4 lights goes for around $600 shipped.

I've got the BC Racing BR+ coilovers with the 14/12 spring rates installed... and almost on full stiff. That combined with TunedParts rigid bars & trunk brace, and TRD yellow sway bars makes for a very stiff ride. But it is more comfortable than blow shocks for sure. I'm getting a lot of noise, I believe it's the end links, I'll know soon. And then order FIG's adjustable links.

But for now, here's a pic... I was able to lower it a little more on the coilovers.


Oh, and one more... I tried it with the original hood back on.


Lots more pics to come, when I get the time to finish them...

^looks sick man. did you figure out if it was indeed the end links making the noises?

I didn't know Tokensolutions made rigid bars, I thought it was just SRT and Tunedparts?

^^ wow, you're right... I get everything all mixed up! Fixed... yeah TUNEDPARTS rigid bars (sorry David) lol.

Honestly, I haven't been doing anything with the car the past few weeks. I haven't even finished the pics I took after the coilovers were finished. So I didn't replace the end links. I was looking at the fronts, and what I thought was the rim hitting potholes is actually the front sway bar hitting the underside of the car. So, I definitely need the adjustable end links so gain clearance for the sway bars.

But I've started biking my 30-mile commute again, so I've barely driven the car the past few weeks.

And the one day it was raining (2 days ago), I drove the car and stuck the back of it in a concrete wall, destroying the back end. Still drives 100% though.... so my apathy has increased lol. Cause now I've got to figure out what I'm gonna do next with it, now that the back is all crunched up.

I'ma get some pics tomorrow.... for now, I'll see what I can do to put it back together... it's my "drifting" scar hahaha. Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do about the inner metal under there without cutting/welding a donor part in. Oh well, it's not like I was planning to sell the car, anyways lol.

I have very mixed feelings about the Chargespeed. I've always thought that it made the back of the car look heavy. But I don't like the lip kit& stock bumper I've got now. I've also been on the fence about the stock tail lights. Thank goodness they were the dark chrome ones, or else they'd have been the first to go. My bad self wants to put on the chargespeed rear bumper and then those LED tail lights you've got.... I really LOVE that combination. In fact, I'm standing there right after I crash, looking at the damage, and thinking "time for LED tail lights and the chargespeed bumper now lol". Maybe even a CF trunk if I can't work with this one. I like the chargespeed (and similar) bumper because it's not the US extended, and it doesn't have the sidemarkers. I think I'm gonna go that route, since it's want I've always really wanted to see honestly. But before the crash, I wanted to go with a more OEM look, and less "heavy" on the lip kit, using the Seibon TA sides and rear lip, and then raising the suspension a little. Oh well, we'll see how it goes tomorrow.

^I know what you mean about being back heavy. Which is why is all depends on the side skirts. If the sides don't go low enough, it makes the rear end look funny when looking at the car from the side haha I think with the Seibon TA sides it'd look sick. Seibon rear lip would be sick also!
