    I agree with you about the spoiler height
    It needs to be as the mkiv height, that's just a render we will see in real life how we make it, but sure it needs mkiv spoiler without any doubt

    For the round tails it's difficult to see any good after market tails that match the Oems quality
    That's why I think it would depend on the quality and how it will look in person

    Ambitiously: black TE-37
    Realistically: get a tint lol

    Tinting windows is the first thing I would do to any car. I haven’t seen the car in person yet so I don’t know if the car needs a drop. But then the dilemma is Springs or coilovers?

    Also just powder coating the wheels in black instead of going after market could save me about $2000 but the TE-37a fit this car so well

    See the things is.. if you paint in black then it would be a “waste” of money later if you really wanted to get an aftermarket set of wheels, so might as well get new wheels from the jump lol

    no question about that, it looks dumb with red mirrors

    The only thing I would do is get rid of the fake vents, at least the one in the front fenders and rear quarter panels. And I don't mean to open them up, I mean to seal them and get rid of the black fillers or at least remove them to paint them.

    Because probably it'd just be dead space behind that piece of plastic leading nowhere special. Hopefully someone decides to document where these fake vents, specially the ones in the quarter panel lead to

    Anyone know if the MKIV emblem and MKV emblem are the same size. The stock emblem is so ugly on a white car.
