Whats up CRSX, this will be my first official showoff thread to this site! Its been a long time coming, and theres still so much more work planned for my car... Ive waited for awhile now to post up a showoff thread, but I wanted my car to be at least half way decent until I did. I got my 2005 NHBP Type S, back in October of 2011. Drove 4 hours down south and picked her up from a private seller for a great price. Completely stock, 2nd owner, unmodified with the exception of fog lights and an aftermarket stereo unit. From that point on is when all the work started. I've done most everything myself or with the help of my grandpa at our shop. Only things I can think of I didnt have a hand in was the paint work, or window tint. Heres a list of the mods as of today:
New pics: 10/7/12 (Pg.2)
Newest pics up 11/8/12 (pg.3)
NEW PICS 3/2/13 w/model!!!

Then finally went on a little photo shoot with my buddy and his TSX. Tein Flex suspension, TL rims, Injen CAI, and Weapons R 4-2-1 header.
We hit I think 4 different spots, and all the photos were taken with a Cannon Rebel Ti-3 I believe. So check out the finished product so far!

Thanks! Its a love/hate relationship with the bumper though, sometimes I really like it, other times I think about going back. We'll see down road :dontknow:
