Default The long road and many changes to my Bugeye.

Here is my car's story:

My original plan was to get a Aspen STi. I found a bugeye for cheap and decided i can used the extra money for modifications.

So i bought the car July of 07. It was in a front end collision. Sold for cheap. Around 9k i spend almost an extra 2k fixing it.

Now with over 13-14k invested in less than a year a hit a point where i am actually happy with the look and performance, minus the suspension which i am still trying to figure out what to get.

It by no means is a beauty or show queen but not to bad now. I know about the hood not closing the FMIC pipe is holding it up and i need to fix it.

Let me know what you think.



Okay.......this hood......... was the previous owners doing. I searched for a stock hood for over 1 month with no avail. So that is the reason otherwise i would of never. Car is basically STG2 and at this time using a AP.

July 07
Monster Ported TD04




Had a VF39 Roadtuned maybe a month before these pics were taken.
These pictures it had a VF34 Protuned, Header, Inlet etc.

Looks a lot better nowadays except I still think the painted headlights don't look great anymore. It's almost jdm/edm or bust for them.

Yea but 1300 to do EDM headlights correctly. (litewerks)

That could go towards a Green or Dom 3.0r.
