Black Armada

Hi,
I have finally installed all those mods I had lying around in my guest room and have the pictures to back them up. I decided long back that I would be doing my mods in phases and as such, this will be phase I:
PHASE I:

1) VOLANT CAI - quiet drive and drone at 1500 rpm, but screams its head off at WOT! Love it!!
2) Upper and lower grille combo -
3) Interior LED package - from amazon; bright as hell, pics dont do justice.
4) 8000k HID for lows - one has already burnt out need to replace that.
5) 890 LED bulbs for the fogs from ijdmtoys- purely show and doesnt throw that much light compared to stock halogen
6) Rubber mats
7) White door handles - sanded them like there was no tomorrow.
8) Bully Dog - vroom vroom.

Pic1- Volant
Pic2- Shot of a clean engine bay, since it wont stay that way for long.
Pic3- blackArmada_DXB during the day
Pic4- Interior white LEDs, rubber mats and white door handles
Pic5- 8000k lows, 890 LED bulbs from ijdmtoy

In preparation for a long trip to Western Region (approx. 186 miles away from where I live), I took my car for a wash. I'm going to uninstall the BD and will use this trip to track my mileage to see if there has been a +ve impact with the Volant alone.

Yes, there was a +ve impact with the Volant alone. I got 15.6 mpg. Missed the BD too much so I put it back in as soon as I could and did a couple of 0-60 mph runs. Now I am deaf!!!
