    Looks like a nice example there, not a fan of the wheels though,

    Exhaust looks like a feels or fujitsubo rmo1a. Coilovers look good too

    I am not certain which way I am going to go with this car. I do like the idea of keeping all of the fun bits that came with the car, but some I don't like. And if I start going back to stock on some aspects of the car, do I go back to stock on everything?

    However, before all of that, I need to get used to driving on the right hand side of the car.

    I would ditch that front bumper asap for a stock one. Race base had steel wheels so maybe some normal EK9 ones? Race base is kind of a funny one as the interior is meant to be ripped out because race car. But then if you do that is it any different to a normal EK9? Or do you leave it in and fall off the seats in corners?

    Which bits don't you like?
    If it were my car (I wish ;))I would probably put a stock bumper on and some nice wheels, put in one fixed back seat and a nice steering wheel, that would be my idea of perfect.

    Most importantly though, get some corrosion protection on the underbody
