    newbie wants to say hi =)

    Hello Everyone,

    Newbie here from the bay area . Today Im a proud owner of a 02 Laguna Seca Blue ///M Coupe. Its completely stock with all option except the sunroof. I have been on search for a while now for either white or LSB with the S54 motor. I flew to Socal and drove it back to Norcal the same day and I have to say I am very satisfied with this beast. I am currently looking where I could find some front splitters similar to the ACS and a rear trunk and roof spoiler. Any advice are greatly appreciated. I promise to post pics soon after giving it a complete detail and once I install my new wheels and coilovers.

    You know you've got something when the rear fenders sticks out as much as the side mirrors

    Sweet....that's a great package...no sunroof?! You wouldn't miss it if you had one with it. Can we some pics, maybe looking down on the car and the roof line?

    Welcome to the S54 club, can't wait for the pics. What wheels and coilovers did you get for her?

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I ordered a set of 19" BBS LMRs and H&R coilovers. Today Im having the entire front and the rear spoiler repainted to get rid of all the rock chips.

    Wow LM-Rs... you are not screwing around buddy! What sizes and offsets are they? I'm especially curious about how they'll fit in the rear, since they seem to fit well on Thatcher's 2.8 coupe. I assume you meant to say you're getting the bumpers repainted, how much did that run you? My front is begging for a respray, too many trips to homecoming made by the previous owner.

    For splitters in the front go to www.Motionmotorsport.net. They are on sale till the 30th. I don't know if that makes a difference to you.

    amazing dude!!! Not much of a newbie to fine cars, must have been extremely patient and knowing what you want to find something like that!
    Already customizing it? you must be planning on driving it around more than others do...
