Hello everyone.

Rather than continue on my introduction thread, I figured I should start a proper build record.

My plans for this car are not extensive, and involve mostly handling or esthetic modifications because I think 200hp in a front wheel drive car is entirely appropriate.

The car at the moment has a bit of a rough exterior with teal accents and a non turbo bumper as it has a somewhat sorted past full of jealousy and sabotage. But I am here to at least attempt to set things right. I've sourced a new bumper and hatch and will be getting everything re-painted in the coming months. But for now, here's how it currently looks.

The wheels are prodrive gt1 18x8 with 245 40 tires on them. It's a bit larger than factory, but it takes bumps a little better with the thicker side wall and now the speedometer is actually accurate (within 1%). There's a very small amount of rubbing but only when at a very specific turning angle, then it goes away so its fine as a daily driver for now.

I'll be going for a yellow and black look with N style inspired lines painted on for a more subtle appearance. Black wheels will also be in the future but not until winter when I can take them off and send them to the shop.

This one's going to be pretty slow, but I'll hopefully not loose motivation.
