    Long time away but finally coming back to the forums

    What's up all? Been away for a long time and have been mostly on facebook groups and been neglecting to post here. I have been on this site since I bought my 15 F5 new. I am a moderator here and have also had a lot going on with me personally in the past few years and now I am trying to make a comeback to the forums. For those that don't know my car it's pretty crazy and is now a show car only. The car has gone through so many changes through the years and now its about to change again! I am apart of Team Hybrid and I do a lot of shows so that has taken a lot of time from posting etc to.

    Welcome back!

    I had been wondering where you had gone. There aren't a lot of people left who post on here regularly anymore. Seems you pop up in most of the older posts I read through.

    I'm digging the bronze wheels! I've got 2 sets of bronze wheels in shopping carts at the moment. 1 set of 18x8s that I would run the tires I have on my stock rims on. And one set of 16x7s that I would run summer tires on. I haven't made up my mind on what I want to do yet but bronze is for sure the direction I am leaning.

    How long have you had a port and polished head? That is the first 1.6t that I have heard of that has had one. Notice much of a difference with it?
