The Story

Picked up nearly stock (just coils and wheels) from my friend, I went straight to work modifying this gorgeous Speed3. I read all the forums and watched all the videos, so I knew to do the HPFP internals and other more functional/reliability mods before going crazy with it. Will be posting more photos once the winter calms down and I get her cleaned up. Formerly had a Corksport front lip that was quickly devoured by the roads around Cleveland. Wheels are bronze Aodhan AH07s that I was running on my previous car, a 2012 Scion tC, that I sold for the money to buy this. For snows I'm currently running grey OZ Racing Omnias 17x7 with General Altimax Arctics 205/50R17 and a 1" spacer. Tuned by Justin at Freektune.
