I was at 45.5.... Now 3 tanks later. Life is still 45.5. Tank has been around 44.9. Looks hella lot better though and the 32mm spacers made a big difference!

Any pictures with different angles? I'm thinking about doing this and look for spare spats incase I mess up. What saw or blade is recommended?

Strongly disagree with that. Kinda like this if you ask me, Which, I realize, you didn't.

Regardless the insight is not a great looking car but does have its purpose IMO.

Thems be fighting words.

I think it is a fine looking car, with the design driven by the engineering done to achieve the incredible mileage it gets. It is also completely unique. I've never had a car that has received as many positive comments about it's looks as this little thing does.

IMO it just looks like a generic Jap coupe now.

Hmmm. I considered it but the red car has convinced me its compromised the car's character.

It's my car a year or so ago. It's got clear side repeaters now well turn signals on the wings, (fender)
