It seems these days black has been the choice for most when it comes to wheels and
most other items when accesorizing or modding one's ride.

After seeing the recent Underground builds that folks have opted for the black finish
I contacted Kevin and he and crew really helped in making the transition from polished to black.


Thanks Much Kevin , KC and Crew !

It looks better cause it looks like it is supposed to be there. Looks OEM. Not Honda JDM

love the black bro but I also love the polished look too!

I think polished looks badass because when you show off the TT kit they see all the polished and know its not stock whereas they see all black and people that dont know wassup might just think its stock, know what i mean? I think im going polished as I take the car to shows. stands out more i think.

Black still looks badass!

Very nice. I like both looks for different reasons. Either way looks killer.

I was partial with this as well. I loved the look of the polished parts
as once the bonnet is up it's all smiles and amazement from onlookers.
Once UR started coating parts in black I knew I had to change the
system as it is such a cleaner look. I will at some point soon change
the red and blue fittings to the black one's for an even cleaner look.

I do like the black, specially because it brings attention to some components that would often be overlooked like the throttle bodies, blow-offs and braided lines for example. Altogether, I think it's perfect how it is, even without the black fittings. Either way, very impressive car, nice choice.
