Bought brand new in early 2010. Power package, sun and sound package, 5 speed tranny, fog lights. Working slowly on upgrades. Love my car ;)

Mods include so far: 18" msr rims with 225/40r18 rubber, 6000k HID kit, Sylvania Silverstar Ultra ZXE fog lights, bit more bass in the trunk, Eibach Sportlines with KYB shocks and struts and a couple visual changes including window tint with sun strip, tinted taillights, third brake light, reverse lights and markers, vinyl arrow head overlays on front and back and on steering wheel, G5CLUB.net decals in quarter windows, vinyl door sills, de-badged and de-moulded. Trying to keep the car clean and sleek looking!

I have now installed hid fog lights, weathertech floor liners, 10 farad capacitor, cobalt ss high rise carbon fiber spoiler, streettune shorty antenna, led under dash lighting, led under front bumper lighting, and a chive sticker in the back window. KCCO!

Comments: NIGHTMARE. Started by heating them up and pulling back. Tried the fishing line but it kept breaking and just cut through the middle of the two sided foam tape. BEST RESULT used was heating them up and using a plastic putty knife and pushed it between the body and mold. Removed 95% of the tape and was a thousand times quicker. Clean up of residue still took a long time with goo gone to ensure 1000% removal.
