Shotgun? I think I have an idea of what it could be (well, 2 ideas :p), but I won't say it :laugh:. Either way I know it will be awesome, like everything else you've done to her :grinning:

I reckon it's either a shotgun style exhaust system from someone other than Japspeed (they say if you have money, you can buy anything), or a set of bucket seats. Either would be cool (Y)

the backs set as low as it can go the front had to be raised slightly from where you had it as it was near enough on the tyres when we dropped it off the axle stands it`s now set about an inch off the tyres all round the front arches rolled themselves when going over a bumpy field at jae which was handy and the rears scrape slightly on the biggest of bumps so will be needing to roll them slightly when i get chance there are a few pics in the jae thread but i will take some more when it`s light tomorrow and post them up when i get back from work tomorrow night of how it`s sitting at the moment i may raise the back slighty so i can take people in the back until i get another car as a daily and i will prob raise it for the winter if the bad weather comes again might have to slam it on the standard alloys for a pic when i stick em on tho :)

Cheers matey the black an chrome wheels are 17x7.5 and are currently off the car for a winter refurb once there back on i will mesure what size spacers i need and get them i think 10mm should do the trick it's currently sitting on the standard alloys which are 16 x 6.5 i think not sure on ofsets

the wind deflectors were from ebay a couple of years ago took an age to get here but worth it in the end

as for the coilovers not sure why mine would be lower the fronts ain't even dropped right down would be good to get mine yours and guy's 160 together one day for a photoshoot and too compare mods and ideas !
 
what size tyres you running on the 17s and 16s?

yeah wind deflectors are in japan as most march are 5dr.

i think im going to cool down modding the k12 for a bit.. just upgrade the speakers, exhaust and then oem side skirts if i can find. all cheap-ish mods.
maybe can get pic at castle combe japfest? i'd like to see more k12 to get more ideas tho kinda happy with my result for now.

The 17's were 205/40 an the 16's are standard 185/50 the wind deflectors were from poland or somewhere like that team heko 3dr ones
it would be good to all meet up at japfest i'm planning on attending subject to time off work
an yours looks good as it is an i'm sure turns heads so i'd leave it as is for now mine will have been six years work this june so is a little more extreme

Theres 3 flat clips with a tab in the middle you need to lift up once you start it pretty much shows you what needs to be done easy once you get the hand of it but a bit tricky the first time good luck with it
