HJLee's build thread. Lots pics
First pic at home right after I got home
Pics in the morning before heading over to meet with a friend to take pics.
Photoshoot with a friends G35 that following day
After I finished the break-in period.
First curb rash..Had to avoid an idiot that swung out too wide when he turned.
First mod: DDM HID kit 5000K (which failed 2 weeks later)
Second mod: K&N Intake
Heat shield took me the longest to install. Everything else was easy.
3rd Mod: CS LED Kit
Bird poop paint job -50-hp
OEM Cargo Tray (Highly Recommend one if you use the hatch a lot)
5 Months later, my car has been driven 8000 Miles
7 Months of driving = 9999 Miles-10000 Miles
Got rid of the crappy DDM kit and order TRS Morimoto HID Kit
Winter wheels painted graphite metallic.
Last one to leave work.
The loaner they gave me at Mazda haha

Debadged the 2.5 and Plasti-dipped the rest....and cracked the screen of my Galaxy Nexus in the process..
Cost of mod: $6.00 for Plasti-dip + $4.00 for Painters Blue Tape + $165.00 for Galaxy Nexus screen replacement = $175.00
surprisingly, the outer screen isnt cracked or damaged..the LCD underneath is though.. guessing it's either built strong or the invisible shield I had on it helped haha
Oh yea forgot about this haha thanks Casey for reminding me!
JDM Air Freshners! it's live having turbo....for the air in your car haha
Finally installed HID Fogs to match my Lows.

Very nice!!!!! congrats........ nice choice for intake,i wish K&N made one for the speed,like the air filter housing,keeps eng. heat away,the bird poop that is good luck baptize, for the wheel get a round file and work it slowly to shape;get touch up paint at your local auto parts,i had same issue with mine
Wow I need to drive more haha. I've had my car for almost 7 months and I'm only at around 4600 miles. Also... ewww... a Prius!
I'm always one of the last ones to leave work too haha. I'm also always one of the last ones to get to work haha. I love being able to come in when I want haha.

Way problems did you have with the DDM lot? Did you get the optional wiring harness?
I've had DDM HID's on multiple cars and they've all worked flawlessly.
Ride looks good btw! Lot of miles in a short time! I'm just as guilty haha.
