1st MOD: WeatherTech Floor mats (just the fronts)

Minor, but very important here in Canadian weather. LOL

Here was a quick photoshop I did with an idea I've had... still toying with it - not sure if I'll go through with it or not, but I like the look!

Nice addition. The floor mats are a must. I really like the WeatherTech products. Had them in my last ride. Putting them on my wish list for the Elantra!

New Mod:

18" MSR Style 044 Rims w/ Nitto NeoGen 225/40 18 Rubber - the rims are beat to crap, but the price was right, and I'll Plasti-Dip them gloss black one of these days (Have the kit, just haven't had the time).

Really nice fitment.

After tinkering with the idea of gutting the intake assembly, I managed to rig myself up a SRI. I liked the sound, and could tell there was a little more response in the throttle, but the idea of it sucking HOT AIR into the engine really bothered me... so I did some CAI research.

I ended up going with:

AEM Cold Air Intake for 2011-2013 1.8L Elantra (yes, it fits the 2.0L)

Next up - I swapped out the interior and trunk bulbs with LED's, and had the remaining front windows (except for the windshield) tinted (20%):

Thanks! I only picked up a set of mats for the front 2 seats, but totally worth it. I love taking them out and cleaning them, and seeing that the carpet is completely untouched.
