Honestly, Im torn on it. I loved the vinyl and think the car looks naked without it. Now the car just blends in with the crowd. Which is a bad thing and a good thing in one. But the car looks infinitely cleaner. Now I need to figure out what color to paint my pink wheels to get them ready for winter usage. Probably just Silver.

Haha looks like a completely different car.
I'm not a huge fan of vinyls and wraps but I have to agree with RLB, it does look a little weird now.
Still great. Needs a JDM grilllll.

The wheels are special edition Rota SVNR's 18x10 +30

I'm liking it without the vinyl setup, I wish you would've pulled the stickers under the V.D. stickers on the rear windows as well. I just don't think they flow to well, maybe pull the rears and only reapply your V.D. stickers.

looks nice and clean, but without the vinyl, to complete the clean look it needs those sides painted and a prodrive front IMO
