Just thought I'd share. Some of you guys might remember how my car used to look... if not take a look at the pics in post 2

Had all the bells and whistles. Full 05/06 conversion with JDM tails, Comptech Supercharger, EPS, Volk Time Attacks, Recaro and Red-Stitched Wheel, Boot, E-brake, etc, Brembo BBK, tons of little crap that cost way too much that non-RSX enthusiasts would never even notice...

I dumped a ton of money and time into it. It's been my DD since July 2006. This car has been through hell and back. Went all out Authentic 02/04 Type-R exterior, then retro-projector headlights, had a set of black rota torque's. It's been though an accident, impound, hydrolock, a motor swap, tons of tickets, track days, street races in my dumber younger days, and lord knows what else.

Life happens so I decided to un-mod it and take it back to "stock". It's stock to me. Here's how it sits now. No supercharger. N/A k24a2 with 5.0 FD on stock exhaust and SRI. Rear Sway bar set up, Recaros, Volks, Brembo's, etc have all been sold along with all the Comptech and interior goodies. Took the spoiler off, put some 05/06 leathers in it and 05/06 base stockies because I couldn’t locate any Type-S wheels and I hated my stockies.

You all know what a stock 03 NBP looks like, so I’ll spare everyone the “First day I got her!” pics.

After some money was put into it

Then I went with retro-fitted projector headlights and supercharged

Sick wheels man.
Thanks :thumbsup:
Incase anyone asks, they are 18 x 7.5 +48mm offset

nice...
what r ur plans?
Edited my post, upping the bewst! Finish the conversion and few other Area 51 status plans :shady:

in for pics of seats..
Posted! They are Recaro SRD's Black Avus with Red Lettering/Stitching. Kinda hard to see the stitching in the pics tho. Thus, the need for someone with skillz and a good camera to take some pics for me :D

why the spacers?
Offset was too high and they tucked badly. Even with the 15mm spacers they barely sit flush :run:

what happened to the retros? :)
Gone :(
But 05/06 headlights look pimp with retros. I'll say no more :drink:

:iamwiths: the exterior looks sexy how bout some interior shots
My camera won't let me get good pics of the interior details. Not a whole lot going on aside from the seats. Have a Skunk2 knob and JDM shiftboot. More coming soon tho... :wavey:
