Looks awesome. Love everything you've done to your car since I have very similar plans for mine.

Any rubbing with the spacers and the BC coilovers? I have 25mm spacers on stock suspension and my rear tires rub on hard bumps.

I didn't rub at all with the spacers on stock suspension. Had to roll the rears to fit with the drop.

Sure hacked a lot out of the bumper. The middle drop brace is gone now I see. How flimsy is the lower lip now that the support was removed.

Sure, sell the TMIC when I am looking to buy but waiting for $, lol.

Looks really good Ben. Seemingly the "most modded" 2011 Hatch on here?!?!?!

Love the FMIC setup. These hot days and traffic have me considering going FMIC for my VF setup. How much have you noticed the heat soak being improved on warmer days?

That brace really doesn't do anything, IMO. There are two brackets on the bottom in the middle of the bumper that holds it up. I actually don't even have those braces and the bottom of the bumper is still rock solid. I am positive there are more modded '11's out there

Yeah, when it was 100F this week my TMIC was physically burning hot. I couldn't even touch it. FMIC stays at a reasonable temp. Sure seems like it's doing a better job.

Scoop-less widebody FTW! Now throw some 17x9 wheels on there with some aggressive-tread 255s and you're done

Your car with a FMIC and scoopless hood could be a real sleeper due to the lack of the widebody fenders. Then the only issue would be the bright yellow wheels and badges, haha.

Yeah I wouldn't do it. I like my rice and my hood scoop too much!

I really think the wide body makes it work... i know it isn't a sleeper, but it looks mean. Hey I waxed the car last night, if it doesn't rain we should do that photo shoot tonight. If it does rain I am pulling my bumper tonight and repainting it.
