Hi Everyone,

It's been 6 months already since I got the CT. Thanks for posting and sharing feedback. I've learned a lot from your posts and i'm happy to say, I have the CT pretty much way the way I want it. Only small minor changes to come. I will share those a bit later :)

Here are the list of mods copied from my sig.

Tanabe Sustec Pro S-0C Coilovers
Work Emotion CR Ultimates 17x7 +38 (Special Order) in Matte Bronze w/ Project Kics Bullocks
TOMS Aero Kit (100% Authentic)
BeatSonic Sharkfin Antenna
Lexus F-Sport Sway Bar Kit and Shift Knob
Lexus OEM Window Visors, All Weather Floormats and Trunk Accessories lol
DDM Tuning HID Kit Headlights 4500k / Fogs 3000k

Enjoi!!





The paint color for the rear diffuser matches the grill color/stock F-sport wheel color pretty darn well.




I'll take some more pics later when there it's sunny out!

What kind of "trunk accessories"?
I picked up the all weather floor mat and the spider cargo net that sits right on top of it. It came with the cargo net envelope. I also keep a small foldable chair in the spider cargo net for on the go sitting :p

def some nice progress! Keep it up, and slam them coilovers down some more! :D
I think i'm 1.25 inches lower than stock. Stock finger gap is about 4 fingers, Index to pinky for me. Now its just about 2. I can't go lower, my office has huge speed bumps and they're quite plentiful. Plus the highway i take isn't the best for super low cars haha. As my daily, I think i'm at just the right height for style and functionality. I would like to get some spacers to push my wheels just a tiny bit out.

Well, it's been a while since i've posted on my build thread. a fair amount of things happened to my CT in regards to mods since the Hella horns were installed back in Oct 2013. Since the upgrade horns were installed, the following have been installed onto my CT:

Things waiting to be installed... TOMS Strut bar and PIAA 2500k Plastma Ion Yellow fog lights.


1 nice big surprise on order. Some color change surprise to come later.


All mods focused around maintaining max mpg and full functionality. I'm more about functional stance rather the slammed scene. Just my cup of tea. The looks of my car can be desribed as Super OEM Plus+++ lol.


Here is the information page of the tints i got - Automotive Film ... MikeZ on the CL forums also got these tints (not same %) on his Lotus Exige.


Some updated pics of my CT!


The latest and greatest TOMS goodies: (grid pic used for Instagram)



Chrome finish Injen intake, i hear a nice audible difference. i can def feel the ever so slightest pick up. MPG comparison to stock intake later to come... will need more fillups first.



Artisan Spirits Hatch Spoiler and tints! Finished in ultra white. Some pics sorta suck cuz of the lack of sun... Updated pics to come later. (Tints are here too)















Modellista Chrome Ring Foglight Garnish

Had this installed at the shop yesterday. Tried doin it ourselves first but there was so much crap in the way, didn't wanna deal with it. Even the guys at the shop said it was a bitch lol.

Here's how it looks. I ordered mine thru my contact at vividracing.com

Ok folks, sorry! i have been lazy with upkeep on my build thread... since my last update, i've only put on a few more parts. there isn't much else to get for my needs and the car itself... maybe new wheels later? :p


Here's what i've done since April:


New Custom Lic Plate!
HKS Premium Legamax Quad Tip Exhaust 5/23/2014
Work Center Caps (Low Type/Red Finish) - 4 5/23/2014
EBC USR Series Sport Slotted Rotors 7576 7/19/2014
EBC USR Series Sport Slotted Rotors 7477 7/19/2014


Here are photos!


Exhaust:


Dem tips doe









New red center caps! Rising sun, much JDM. wow.



New slotted rotors, for the front and rear. The black stuff wears off then turns silver. for EBC, the slots need to slant down in the direction of rolling. it's different from other slotted rotors.



My new plate!



Some recent photos of just the CT:
