Good evening to you all.

My name is Adam and im in socal. Picked up this 2012 SE yesterday (barely owned it 24 hours and already went to town @ FSWERKS today. (lucky for me their shop is about 10 minutes from my place.

Took a few shots with my T2i last night before the sun went down. Shot with a Canon 50mm 1.4 Lens

next on the list is suspension / wheels. Still not sure if im going coilovers or springs. Not planning on racing an automatic so Not sure if i want to spend $1k+ on coilovers. As for wheels I am going to stick with 18's. Undecided on manufacturer at this time.

Cheers,
Adam

thats awesome that you already went to town modding! welcome to the site, hope you keep us updated!

i've also spent the last 45 minutes trying to debadge the car. Had to buy some goo gone to get the remaining 25% of the glue still etched on there but as you can see in the pic below there's still some feint outlining. Going to take my porter cable or makita buffer to it tomorrow and see if that'll do the final trick.

Thanks Bergner! I've had this username on multiple car forums for going on 11 years now. Glad I was able to get it on this one. (This makes my 16th car at 27 years of age) :) So I've had my share of car forums
