    Looks nice. And I like the headlights. Retrofit HID's are my next car project.

    My question is: Why do you have monitors facing out the back windshield?

    When they "grade" you do they actually give you points for screens not facing the cabin? That's crazy! In that case make all your windows that cool electrolytic stuff that big city department stores have and turn your windows into colour screens too!

    That would be pretty cool!

    It's a little riced out for my tastes... but I mean, if that's your jive... go for it.

    Outside of the white interior, I dig the screen install, and always nice to see another 7th genner doin their thing.

    Too riced out for me too. I think that a cleaner install and screens that server their purpose would have been better.

    I agree it is riced out, but why is that always a bad thing? I actually like the clean look of the dash, but I think it would look better once painted with OEM texture or something. I hope this is in the dash's future.

    I personally think that the neon is a bit over the top as well as the monitors facing the wrong way of the cabin, but all in all it looks nice. And judging by the crowd by his car in one of his photos, people in his area/niche must like it.
