Hey guys, thanks for checking out my FIRST EVER showoff thread. Been a member for a while now, not many posts, much lurking.
Bought the car in 2010 COMPLETELY stock @ 64k miles save for a bike rack in the back (had to cut it off) from a dealership in Sandusky, OH (about 2 hours away from me).
Fell in love with it and brough it home. I come from the VW world (MK4 specifically). Pictures are pretty random since I haven't really kept track of install or anything throughout the years.
I've tried to detail as much as possible and I'd love to answer any questions you guys have. It's not as heavily modified as some on here but it's mine and I've done it my way. And I will try to update periodically. :wavey:

Most recent pictures as it sits:

Next to my girlfriend's car (badgeless grill and 08+ headlights are en router; just dropped on racelands on stock bronze-plastidipped wheels!)

Next to girlfriend's car (work in progress, will look proper once done):

Poopy interior shot before the TSX knob, spoon mirror and EP3 button:

Current interior:

Last set of wheels:

The bronze rotas plastidipped white (took it off a couple days later, they got way too dirty)

The bronze rotas plastidipped black (came out grainy)
