Default Specter's 2008 SWP Hatch

Hey everyone, just upgraded from an '04 civic sedan last week and boy what an upgrade! Absolutely loving my new (used) 2008 2.5i 5spd Hatchback!

Here she was as she sat on the lot before I picked her up



And at my girlfriend's next to her 2010 lancer


Hadn't even had the car for 3 days and already have my sound system in, LED plate, reverse, dome & map lights, debadged, removed the god awful flame decals and pinstripes from the sides, and disabled drls.

Dont have anything but these crappy night pics at the moment but I'll hopefully have a photoshoot with my buddy when he comes home for a couple days this week.


Alpine CDE-123 Head Unit with Bluetooth and SiriusXM adapters


Kicker CompVR subwoofers (400W RMS each) with painted grills
Kicker ZX750.1 Mono Amp (921W RMS) with painted endcaps
Kicker ZX350.4 4-Chanel Amp (424W RMS) with painted endcaps


Thats all for now, lots of plans in the works

New update, plastidiped my factory wheels for the coming winter months, and I must say, I am incredibly happy with how they turned out

Before

And After






And some better daytime shots









Holding up extremely well so far, especially considering we got some snow the day after I did them.
Also going to be doing the center caps in red once the red plasti-dip comes in

Also got my WeatherTech Window Visors in today, just gotta take the heat gun to them tomorrow to remove the decals

Lookin good so far. After the snow clears out, it would be worth your time and money to upgrade your suspension! Any plans for that in the future?

Definatly! come spring ill be getting some wheels, then should money permit id like to start with a rear sway bar, and Id love to drop an inch or two, but I prolly wont be able to afford it until the year after as I'll be going back to school in september (main reason I went with the 2.5i instead of a wrx, lower payments and all that :P)

Put my RallyArmors on Thursday before work





Roof Rack came in and I picked it up yesterday, went to put in on and realized I had the wrong foot kit, went back to the store and we looked on the site again it said it was the one i had, so we called up yakima and it turns out they had an error in their system, so now i have to wait another week for the new kit..

Got my Tapturn flasher a few days ago, really liking it so far, just waiting for my LED turn signal bulbs to come in to really get the best out of it. Also got some LED Reflectors. These light up dim with the park lights and go bright with the brake lights.



Counting down the days until the snow & salt is gone so I can put on the new wheels..
