Amazing how people will argue until their fingers turn purple on the internet trying to convince others not to pursue their hobbies.

I think I will register on a gun forum and exclaim how recreational shooting is ghey.

^^^edit: and cars like pictured above(mainly from Japan) are waaay overly aggressive, and I think thats the point, Japan is extreme! Btw, most those car are on bags, they naturally camber when you slam them to the ground...
I like your car

Ditto. That color looks gorgeous on white, can't really tell if the centers are the same as the lip or darker.

I thought they were DPES but after researching just now, I believe they are 'Kranson Forged' Klassics, you've probably seen them on another efamous G35..

Exactly how I feel, but I'm also a conservative stance guy compared to a few on here.

Thanks! Hopefully I'll be able to track down some more pictures and information on the color.

But if it's not for the above reasons, a drop/slamming is stupid and ugly.

However, when I see stanced S2000s and M3s in particular it annoys me. S2000s are tricky to handle even with well rounded tire/ wheel setups, messing with contact patches and stretch on an S2000 is a death wish. Additionally, people who buy E46 & E36 M3s just to stance them and say "show is more important than go" should have bought a 330/325/328 etc. My .02.
I like cars that are lowered some, but with the wheels still looking proportional in the wheelwells, because after all it does improve handling on alot of cars, but slammed/stanced is a no-go imo. But thats my opinion and everyone is free to mod their car the way they like it. M3s or any high performance car shouldnt be slammed ever...and thats my opionion too
