    It’s black heavy duty stainless steel mesh which AV8R sourced from a local security screen door manufacturer. Original thread with pics, templates and instructions here Brake Vent Fix

    How do those attach to the EOM paddles? Please give us a review once you've been using them for a while, please!

    They lose effectiveness past the cutouts (the + & - symbols) because there isn't enough rigidity due to how loose the OEM paddles are. I'm going to dissemble the whole thing and see what I can do.

    I bought a set and will report back.

    Those are just a Tuxmat clone it would seem. I love my Tuxmats. I'd be a bit skeptical of the quality for that price on Wish (I'm not going to sign up to be able to see all the options). But plenty of companies have undercut original designs on the cheap before and it's worked out fine.

    Recent updates:
    1. Went back to stock exhaust (from RES titanium EVC catback)
    The exhaust had no drone at all and the "loudness" was fine for me when opened, but I wasn't satisfied with the sound when it was closed so I decided to go back to stock.
    2. Replaced the lap3 uncle chip by a jb4
    I may have lost a few ponies, but I like the more predictable boost and the ability to change maps whenever I need. I only got the fuel wires for now, but I am not sure if I will add the WMI kit.
    3. New rear spoiler (Spreek type 2)
    I wasn't sure about the purchase but I like it much more than I expected. :)

    What was it that you didn't like about the exhaust when closed?

    It made a sort of humming sound on acceleration.

    I am sure everyone by now probably know or hear about the new stupid California exhaust law. $1000 fine each time it is pull over by the police and not able to be correctable, so people who are into building car are hurting from your regular Joe to auto racing store. I was planning on getting a Borla exhaust, but now its a no go since I do not want to face with the fine and deal with the issue. :mad: Where is Paul Walker when you need him MOST.:cry:

    Well, that could kill the performance car industry in California, wonder how many will move states or register thier cars out of state, would that dodge the fine?
