    Swapped over to winter tires/wheels, added 12mm spacers to the front (long overdue as I've been running 15mm spacers in the rear since day one), installed Corsa Forza Performance vertical chassis braces, and applied THIS freebie decal.

    Can't really get a good feel for how the chassis braces are doing as everything is still covered in ice and I swapped to sloppy winter tires at the same time. Seems to turn in a little quicker and stay more stable over rough surfaces in corners. Could be a placebo though. =P

    Today I installed my 500madness intake. I cant seem to get it installed right though... It's together, but it doesn't look right. Also, the passengers side red pipe is rubbing the airbag sensor. (I guess that's what it is).
    It's also hitting that oil hose that goes to turbo.

    The charge pipe going into the turbo is going to rub, no matter which in take you use. You should replace the bolt that for the air bag sensor with one that has a round top. Also, you can use a little soapy water, or a little engine oil to rub in the tube going into the turbo to help with adjusting it to fit. You should do that at all the connection points and adjust every thing before you tighten everything down.

    Welcome and good wheel choice but if you see mine you'd know that is not an impartial comment.

    Got my vinyls put on.

    Turned out really nice, The vinyls look orange in the pics because of the sun and the time of day it was.
    I'll get better pics later.

    I drove 20 miles down I-85 to Pelzer, SC and Joe Bryan Payne at HP Motors helped me put on my red turbo Blanket and red silicone intake tube from 500 Madness to replace the stock one. It seems perkier and although I could only drive it spiritedly for a little while, I got a little better than 22PSI. The sound is nicer too.

    Cross-post from the 500t image thread; I did brakes (hooray slotted rotors) and I stenciled the grille (which is ridiculous but I can't help myself).

    Looks great! I wish I lived in the country so I could justify some massive rally lights like those! The grille turned out great, I've been toying around with the idea a bit but not sure how it would look on the oem grille. A little conflicted on the 500T/Abarth thing, but hey, whatever floats your rally car. =]

    Ha, those Hella 500s are amazing on backroads and most especially on the windy mountain ones. Inspires so much confidence when you can really see, lol. Yes, I really should just get an actual Abarth so I can do dumb things like grille stencils without being a poser... that said i have it almost paid, and I will likely go full-jackass with an Abarth rebadge, coilovers, and a magic tuning box to simulate the experience. As much as I want to get an actual Abarth for the looks, I don't like the moon-like turning circle, the seats, or the thickness of the steering wheel. It all looks amazing, but the comfort factor isn't there.

    I can totally understand someone being like "that's posery" though, haha.
