History
I've had a soft spot for the G8 since I first saw them rolling on the road in '08. Fast forward to '12, I was daily driving a '00 Honda S2000 and getting very tired of the lack of grunt, overall size, and lack of utility. I made up my mind and finally choose the car I loved for a long time, the G8. I lucked out and found my White Hot low mileage one owner at a used car lot of an Acura dealer back home in northern VA. Being stationed at Ft. Campbell KY. I had my Pops check it out for me. After he talked the dealer down and gave the thumbs up I gave him the go ahead to lock it down and have our bank do up my loan. Drove her stock for about a month and a half till I deployed where I proceeded to research and purchase all my mods. I got home on leave Aug. - Sept. '12 and spend about a week of hard wrenching with help of my Pops, brother, and several friends got everything installed and towed up to the amazing guys at RPM in DE to get her tuned. THAT IS ALL.

Where did you get the front splitter from? I have looked online for one and never seem to come up with one.
