    yeah I am pretty sure I have convinced her in to buying some HID's. Also looking at getting the red Honda badges and some matching green lug nuts to go with the hook.

    yeah everyone says not to use Ebay but as long as you are careful on what you buy it is ok. My last air intake I bought was a $300 AEM unit I bought brand new in box for $100.

    I ended up selling it when my timing belt went out and the car was sitting for a while, but I sold it used for a profit at $150, good deal on that one lol. So now I am without an intake and should be getting the car running again soon so I need to get another one, but I think I will be getting the Password JDM carbon intake this time.

    So I get a call from my mom today and she says she wants me to remove the tow hook already because she keeps running into it everytime she gets into her trunk. So I guess I will be having a green tow hook on my car next time she comes over, lol.

    That's a hell of a way to get a tow hook man. lol. A CF intake wouldn't be a bad idea, but it wouldn't match anything under my hood. Still, it IS carbon fiber...

    I've thought abnout getting a tow hook for my car, but idk. I still havent gotten the bumper put on yet, but the price is the same for the work. lol

    Yeah man i don't care what color combos I have going on carbon fiber goes with everything except black cause then it just blends in too much. The tow hook is not really a big deal and honestly I don't know if I ever would have bought one for my car but it does make the car look a little different in it's own way.

    this is true. Besides, isn't carbon fibre more resistant to heat?

    yeah just be careful on Ebay of cheap parts that claim to be real. I got my hood off Ebay and had to have them send another cause of the damage to it under the clearcoat and then when I got the second it was the same issue but not as noticeable. So Ebay is good if you can find reputable people with good parts at discount prices but be careful.
