    -1 on headlights
    +0 for the LED tails, better than incandescent
    +1 on aero suspension
    bespoke 5 spoke mag wheels? Looks like 225w rears, right?

    4 poo-chute exhaust? Must be an AA 3.375 unelss the Brits don't get the 2.4l.
    Looks like the old Racetech steering wheel. Racetech's bankrupt, innit?

    Still some standardisation between the UK and TMI factories it seems. Overall still looks like an Atom!

    +1 for the cluster and surround
    -1 all the lights
    +0 for the frame stiffness being like 2 extra bars... can see the one by engine.. and then another up front.

    the engine is k20z4, they all are abroad... we have k24 because of creativity to get more power since k20z3 kinda sucks.

    thats an old steering wheel, the new one is sick. i have it.. and the shift knob chang'ing around.. is not neccesary...stock knob is fine.


    TMI has a contract to build a standardized product, they really cant stray much... which is why they are getting the updates/etc.. i talked about some changes on the AA3.. and they could sell it for addition after, but vehicle had to be delivered to UK standards.. (no auto off turn signals, no this, no that..)

    some differences i spot between this uk car and my us car:

    -bottom right of rear, i have additional bolt. i assume tow spot?
    -no extinguisher brackets in center on top of console on uk
    -i much prefer my non overprices aero susp arms.. US ones are much bulkier as well.
    -diff exhaust muffler, dont like their rivets.. and larger can



    dont understand change in steering?

    I suspect the steering's just a different ratio rack. The original Brammo racks came in Standard and Race options. IIRC the UK get one choice and it's the equivalent of the US 'Race' option.
