Re: Evan's 2012 SWP Hatch *New Meaty Tires

Sweet ride man. I love that rear diffuser. Need to find it and buy it. Tonight. Why didn't you like the plate trim?! Was it by the same company?

Thanks man. The diffuser is from Blacktop Aero. I think they go for 400 new. Once in a while they pop up here. I might get their carbon fiber r205 diffuser also ;) the license plate trim was just a little overkill for me. It's made by Carbign Craft. Actually for sale now if you are interested.

They pop up every now and then on the for sale section but not too often. We need more diffuser options for the hatch.

I must find one. I need a front lip. Skirts. Rear diffuser. All carbon to match the interior carbon kit I ordered.

New tail overlays! I decided to do the red brake lights and added amber for the turning signals. A little different, but it is growing on me.

Re: Evan's 2012 SWP Hatch *New Tail Tints

While my winter rims and tires were on, I decided to plastidip my gr rims black. Since I don't think I'll be going skiing any time soon I put the summer setup back on. Tires are 265 Super Sports.

How does the plasti dip hold up with washing the wheels?? I like the look
Plasti dip will no doubt hold up to washing them. It's pretty rugged stuff. The better question is how will it look after washing them. Not sure if brake dust will be easy to wash off with just water.

Re: Evan's 2012 SWP Hatch *New Tail Tints

I've noticed that mudflaps are a must with these tires, especially in the rain. I don't know if it is the width or because they are sticky but I hear tons of rocks being flung into the flaps inside the fenders.

That's one reason I got mine and I like how they look as well

I think a lot of it has to do with the tire. I noticed a lot more rock noise with the OEM stockers than my winters even though they are louder.

Stage 2 Finally!

Just installed my catless Invidia DP and am using the Stage 2 ACN91 LWG OTS tune for now. I really love the difference between this and stage 1. The turbo spools so much quicker. I really didn't like with stage 1 how there was a good amount of turbo lag. I've also found that I'm getting much better mpgs with the dp. I think that the turbo is just working more efficiently. I might not be able to be catless for too long. The smell is really bothering me. I will most likely get a catted dp in a little and then get a protune. What about welding in a cat??

Here's the first turn on after the install.
