>iM Feature: Steve Chan’s Acura RSX

>The key idea we live by here at illmotion is “Made You Look”. It’s that “turning heads” mentality that can make certain cars here in Calgary just stand out from the rest. Regardless of what the owner decides to put on his/her car, if it’s grabbed your attention, then that signature illmotion “Made You Look” swag has been achieved. Steve Chan’s RSX is a true testament to our slogan.

With a complete Mugen-style kit, an aggressive stance and a stunning set of Magnesium Blue Volk TE-37s, ignoring this whip is simply impossible. The attention to detail in the interior (JDM ITR Door Sills) and engine bay will also have you looking twice.

Aside from snapping necks when cruising the city streets, Steve’s RSX can be found in it’s true form when he’s tearing it up at the track. With an awesome suspension/wheel set up and a roaring Buddy Club Spec 2 exhaust there’s no denying this car’s capabilities on the road course.

With Steve executing our “Made You Look” lifestyle to the fullest and always keeping his car refreshed every season, there’s no doubt in my mind that you’ll see more of this car in the future.

  4. >http://www.kingmotorsports.com/s-805-exterior.aspxWhy should he spend as much money as the car is worth on authentic exterior parts?Front bumpers can get fucked up on cars that low anyways, so why blow 1500 on it?

  6. >If the car had authentic parts such as a bumper or wing or anything aesthetic for that matter you think it it would be faster? Hahahah. I love posts from anonymous. You are soooo dumb.

  7. >we was just saying should have made it faster instead of knock off mugen kit

  8. >Then it's likely people would hate on it for it's looks. Its one or the other, not many people can pull off the looks and the speed overnight.One thing you have to realize with a lot of the cars we feature or you find anywhere are that they are always works in progress. If you look back at some of our older features and compare them to what the car is today there is some major differences.
