    Weird! I went threw this cars whole build last night (I'm on a senna NSX tip these days)

    That sorcery kit just rices it out, however I do like the alcentera dash. But that rear window conversion fucks it up for me again.

    Car has a nice set of velocity stack ITB's though.

    I used to prefer the widebody NSX's but it must be the old guy in me now that prefers the OEM look. I also prefer the early 90's flip up lights too.

    current desktop at work. VV

    yeah, some lines are off, like that upper part of the rear window...

    One way or another, I'd trade the s2 for this one anyday.

    Except for the weird, mulletesque rear roof/windshield bit, that's one of the sexiest nsx's I've seen!

    The interior is really nice. The body kit is a little to much for me though (maybe its the rear window diffuser, kinda weird).

    I lol'd at the GTR plate before, but forgot to mention it.
    The air ride looks like it's necessary where he parks, even though it must ride like a bag of ass.

    I read the article. The white is a temporary vinyl wrap, which is why the door jambs are red.

    He's still deciding on a colour he likes. In that case, it's ok since it isn't a more permanent screw up.

    I wouldn't choose air suspension, but with having to clear that curb every time you want to take the car for a spin, it's understandable.

    It turns out all the electronics are custom, too.
    The nav, bluetooth functionality, audio, rear facing camera are all sourced from an Acura RDX and are all OEM Acura parts including the steering wheel with factory controls, which is why he chose it.

    In his defence, it's not "air ride" suspension, per say. There is a kit for these cars that basically provides a small lift (2-3inches). They are compatible with aftermarket coilovers. Kit runs about $2K IIRC.
