You have a red car and put yellow calipers? NOOOO!!! I thought that decision would've been easy.

alrightttttt....painted the chrome strips and they came out great but i masked off some of the strip with tape so i gotta touch it up a bit before i post pics. crabs should be here early next week and installed hopefully 30 minutes after they arrive!! i got the itch! just priced out some tinting places...best i've found is $180+tax and it includes a lifetime warranty. anyone whos tinted, is that a fair price? with that, should have tint done within a couple weeks. now that summers here, the mods are just getting done themselves!

That sounds like a fair price to me... When I worked with my cousin he charged 200 for a 4 door with the eyebrow.

Also depends on what tint I think. He used Johnson and it always looked good... IMO.

I'll be sure to get some snaps of the blacked out chrome trim on the doors and upper grilles. the grilles turned out real nice

heard good things about Brakemotive around here and else where as well...anyone else have any input? also, i have a 2006 base v6 sedan. at the top it says coupe/vert only but farther down it says all 06 v6 models- can anyone confirm these will 100% fit, the only other complete set of rotors and pads say it will only fit the 2.4l.

If I had it all over to do again I wouldnt get the drilled or dimpled...just the slotted.
first off...whats the difference between drilled and dimpled? easier for heat to dissipate with drilled? and why wouldn't you go with either now? i'm ready for this brake overhaul but just wanna make sure i get whats best and hear others' reviews
