Default Man my friends make me jealous... 56k don't bother

Ok i'll start right off and say I know you guys aren't big fans of ricers, and neither am I most times, but I think my buddy here did a pretty classy job. Sorry the pics aren't resized. Here'* the specs:

2002 Acura RSX Type *
200hp 2.0 liter Vtec engine
6-speed manual transmission

Mods are quite a few but here'* what i know:

18" Black with polished lip rims
Full acura body kit: Side skirts, front lip, rear spoiler
Tenzo R red seats
Custom black suede a-pillars
Custom black headliner
Alpine in-dash motorized DVD player
2 alpine 10" type-r subwoofers with 760w sony amplifier in custom box
Cold air intake
Blacked out head/taillights
4-point racing harnesses.
Full exhaust system with cat. delete and race header.
Mesh grille kit
Injen polished manifold cover

There'* more than that but i can't remember it all.

Here'* the pictures, I personally like it. Yes i know it'* got the fart-can on it but his is a VERY well toned, full exhaust system with a header, not just some bolt on muffler from autozone.



That'* him, smug bastard.

Couple of the sub install shots, yes the enclosure is sealed in the end.




You can see the control box for the in-dash unit in these pics.

Hate the seats. He only has the right to look smug if he paid/pays for it himself. If mom & dad pay for it then he needs to look grateful.

Yea hasn't gotten to the clearcoating yet. The only thing mom (single parent) paid for was the car itself, beisdes like 3g'* of it. Each and every mod was his deal. That indash unit was the best, all he did was trade his stock seats for it. List price of Alpine- $1400. Ebay price of seats- ~$350. What a deal.

I usually dont like rice, but the outside and inside were tone with taste, aside from the seats. Not too flashy, no neons going off like a disco party on wheels. Simple, yet effective.
