Mods so far:
Carbon vinyl roof
20% windows tint
Debagged/Broken K's installed

I'm not sure if I should remove the ''KOUP and T-GDI'' or keep them both.

PS: I had to resize so it fits all in one picture so sorry if the quality isn't that great....

Looks great! :)
I love the carbon fiber roof, goes very well with the other accents of the car.

Personally, i would remove the Koup and TGDI, taking off the TGDI was the first thing i did, and now i'm taking off all the badges, other than the Broken K of course

You don't get white? That's ridiculous. Yeah, black roof looks great on your car too.

I was just wondering.. Why so many people replace their stock badges?

They dont offer white in a Koup here, or Corsa Blue. Both colors I wish we had. I had to settle for Graphite Steel.

Who is going to make the exhaust for you?
I planned on getting it done in a custom shop where I live.

So far it's fairly expensive tho I called 3-4 shops and the cheapest is at 600$ just for the catback ...so i'm reconsidering. I mean if it's custom the price should be lower by a lot....no ?

Typically (from my experience) yes it should be cheaper. It depends on the shop though.
Different hourly rates, amount of mufflers/resonators, available materials like piping and clamps all play a role as well as skill of their fabricator.

If you find the right place it will be worth it. I haven't been under the car yet to assess how difficult a cat-back might be but it shouldn't be too hard for a decent shop to make a custom one.

Indeed !

Once i'm done with summer university courses around mid-june i'll just drop my car at the shop so they can do the full turboback in 3''.

Then when it comes out: Tune / FMIC / Adapter for my HKS SSQV / Intercooler Resonator Delete Pipe and it should be it ! :p

New picture with the plastic dips on mags !

Looks great. After seeing yours i was out there visualising what my black Koup would look like with black PD on the wheel but I think it'd be too much.

Looks awesome. I was debating PD on my wheels as well but I don't think it'd look quite right. Feel like my wheels would hide away under the silver if they were any darker lol

OMG I hate that the US doesn't get white for a color. It would be my first choice hands down. So jealous.
Just read this post form way back in april. I am from P.A and mine is white. Also the first one i brought into the shop straight off the truck was white.
