    The gold rims are so 80s. Maybe it's just me but exterior wise everything looks worse. Plus what's up with using Evannex center console when you can get OEM center console? I mean aside from the $700 or so price difference. The lighted T is nice since it retains the OEM look except when you want it on.

    The gold rims and some of the other stuff he had done are a bit tacky. But the lighted T? Pure class:)

    Methinks there's a bit of bias there though.

    That is an old show. "Counting Cars" episode but I think it's over a year ago so things like center console were not available yet. Re-fresh was not out yet etc..........

    I think center console was still available but the older style. I remember certain trims weren't available for months though.

    Wow, that looks like what we used to want to do with salvage title Civics and Integras when I was in high school and first learning to drive... But way worse. Even then we knew better than to put gold rims on anything except a Blue WRX

    Other than the red "T", that is the most revoltingly ugly vehicle I have seen in a long time!! Such appalling taste!

    Other than add t sportline stuff ,a lighted T and some hideous rims all they did was give it a painfull paint job. Almost no interior mods except a bolt in evanax console. I think their crew was completely flummoxed as to what to do. It also goes to show if you are starting with something designed and done right it's tough to improve upon. I wonder how much they charged poor Dee for butchering his Tesla (and I usually like counting cars!)
