Fast forward a couple weeks, a hundred or so dollars in stickers, lighting tint and the like and her current state...

Only "performance" mod so far is removal of the air box lid. Not sure the performance I'm getting but the sound is amazing.

My current wish list looks something like this:

FSWERKS Race Cat Back Exhaust
Steeda Intake (heat shield wielding version)
Coilovers
Steeda Rear Sway bar
Steeda Short Throw shifter
18" Wheels (still debating which)
Brembo 310mm BBK
Functional Front Splitter/Windage tray
Functional Rear diffuser.

My goal is to create and "tasteful" (at least in my mind) car able to be daily driven but still with enough teeth to hold its own during open track days or on the back roads.

I (obviously) have a thing for green and am a little fanatical about my car.

Was thinking about doing this... Really that much of a sound increase? Easy to get off?

Seriously, every time I see pictures of your focus with the stripe it looks cooler and cooler!

Let's just say I've lost 2mpg since Friday when I did this because I love the sound at full throttle. There is a sizable sound increase, may be too much for some, but I'm loving it and the GF hasn't said anything yet except for "Wow, all that from removing that plastic" and "cool!" LOL. It's only four screws.

Thanks... I love my stripes and my other craziness.

No issues with the police as of yet. My buddy who is a Detective with the Sheriff's Dept couldn't think of anything illegal about it and pointed me to the city and state statutes and ordinances, nothing outlawing it...

At night, other than looking freaking cool, there is a slight green hue to the lights, but output not effected very much.

Yeah, I just went out to the garage and removed it.... at 12:30 PM. Was reving it and pulled out of the garage and drove around the block. Holy hell it does sound better. My GF, when I let her drive, loves the sound of the engine. LOVES IT. She'll love this! And yeah, when I got into it and saw the screws I was like lol, too easy.

Also left the airbox cover drying in the sink. Figured id clean it off before putting it in my "car parts" drawer.
