Oh man, you need to test drive to understand this.. The difference is BIG son. It feels like a much nicer, heavier, and FASTER car.. From when you turn the ignition on and hear the deep engine bay and turbo to slowing down and hearing the amazing SST transmission do it's thing, the Ralliart is a amazing. I can't wait to turn it into a monster!

Small update with exterior modifications. I went with 5% on all doors and 20% on the rear so that I can at least see thru the rear. Went past a cop and I was good. Probably bc of my moonroof being open :thumbsup:

Today, I received Laminx's tinted film for my headlights. I went on and attempted to install them. Went pretty smooth with plenty hand soap and water. I also had a friend help me which made it a lot easier. If anyone needs tips, just give me a shout!

Ed, I'll try and snap some pics with the lights on tonight. It's really no different with the "tint" color. It's a slight smoked shade.

Heifeif, it's def heaven my man. That's why I had to upgrade. Can't wait for next week.

Springs, wheels and something new go on Monday or Tuesday.. I'm mad hype.

Ed, As far the tint goes, the projectors shoot out the same clean color as stock. No purple hue. It may have been bc of your HIDs. Did you use the same shade and brand?

Thanks my man. The one that came with this thing had a wingless trunk and back up camera.. smh. I dont want a freaking back up camera. So I had the dealer swap it out with the GTS's trunk. Glad I made that decision.

Well, the GTS had Tien springs. So those will go on the RA tomorrow, since I miss the drop so much. The Varrstoens w/ Potenzas are gonna get slapped on as soon as I get the rear fenders rolled.

But tmrw, I have Ultimate Racing's performance exhaust with titanium tips coming in AND Im going to install as well. :thumbsup:

SO, just got in an awesome upgrade. Installed it as soon as I got out of work. Grabbed my ramps, a buddy, and my tools and was at it again....

I purchased Ultimate Racing's Performance exhaust WITH dual titanium tips. The quality is amazing, the wielding is great, and the sound is freaking SICK.

Stock vs. UR's Exhaust (a lot lighter than stock)

I definitely recommend this exhaust to any Ralliart owner. The sound is incredible and there is a slight increase in acceleration, the SST shifted a bit faster than usual.

Here's a quick vid, (sorry for the quality, it's from my iPhone 4S) Enjoy!

Feedback welcomed!
