Yep, I did it. The guy did a really good job. It was about $350. Yeah, I'm sure you could shop around and get a better price. It's still better than buying the Type-S ones for over $400.

Oh, by the way, I got it done about 5 months ago and it still looks perfect. The guy who did it gave me touch-up paint just incase. Believe me, it makes the car look much better.

Yeah, if he can find some used ones. New ones from the dealer come in at around $420. So, I saved $70 by just painting mine.

who said you have to race?

you can get a nice kit and exhaust and no one will know whether you have a type s or base if they don't look at your front brake disc...

besides it's for a cleaner look not a type s wannabe
