Direction of my car, good or ricey?

So, as an aspiring member of SonicsMK3 crew your opinions matter to me, the direction I am taking with my car currently is a rally look. Now I feel I have achieved that minus the rims (working on getting sparco's.) I'd love your guys' take on my car, too many stickers? Not enough? Im open to suggestions, im getting a lunchbox delete soon and Sportlines later this spring, early summer!

Current exterrior mods are as follow:
Whisker delete
Tint 5%back 30% front two windows
DMB oval overlays
Plasti-Dipped GS stripes (put on last night)
Yellow fog light tint
Nokya yellow bulbs
RokBlokz mud flaps
Plasti-Dipped rear reflectors
Black painted lugs and center caps
Sticker assortment







Performance:
K&N intake with outerwears w/out lid
Snorkel delete w/ bent flaps
Steeda rear sway bar




Interior:
Plasti-dipped silver interior pieces

Name on your car is a bit much but I can't get enough of that color with the black accents.

Lose the stickers, lose the stripes, and everything else is ok in my book.

It's kind of hard to go incognito if you've elected the rally look with large bright red mudflaps. If you had gone with the black ones they would stand out slightly less. The rally style name tag sure would draw the wrong sort of attention from people and law enforcement.

Especially if they have the slightest clue what it meant. It looked like a street racer rather than someone who is following the rules. It doesn't matter if no laws were broken, but if you make one misstep while they were watching (in their eyes at least) then it may come back to bite you.

Personally I'm not fond of the black pack spoiler and mirror caps on cars that aren't black, but to each his or her own and if you like it then more power to you. I can confess to liking a color that most people think is for old people, so it all comes down to preference.

Definitely not rice.

The big red flaps just don't do it for me, and as you have seen, might tend to be less stealthy to the popo.

All in all, not too shabby
