Borla exhaust is on, picked up a few other odds and ends.

Got some mint Srt pedal covers since a couple of the knobs were worn off on my swap car, little things like that bother me.

Originally planned on NIB rota slips royal gun metallic planted on 205/50/15 kumho ectsa's which I can grab for $59 each.

I really need to see them on a car/neon to know if I like them.
