Is there any part/mod on your car you had to do a few times, or installed and then removed?
This is my second headlight setup, I had the halo rings but felt it was time to give them back to BMW. I wanted something from Honda/Acura which would keep my clean oem look to this build.
I had the full aspec kit for about four years I removed it because I’ve always preferred the euro r front and mugen rear.

What’s the best memory you had in your car?
The best memory I had was my earlier days when I used to surprise euro r cars by leaving them behind with my initial torque and then high speed cornering since my 4wd gave me advantages in both areas.
