Those wheels plus M badge. No one will be able to tell the difference.






PS. Since these wheels are POS replicas I hope you are happy paying money to make your car slower, less fuel efficient and handle worse now. I reakon you just added at least 0.5 secs to your 0-100 times with those wheels. And the sad thing is you didn't sacrifice performance for looks coz it looks fkn h0m0
not sure if srs

not sure if you're also srs. You and Rossim3 need to look at the chromies and realise I havent actually decreased or increased performance... well beside apparently curing my broken powersteering problem... (bad bad bad chromies <3)

Next thing id do is get that front bar fixed
I dont mean to sound stupid but, whats wrong with my front bar? Also thanks, the wheels cured my powersteering problems so I'm pretty damned pleased, and dont mind them, even if they arent oems (I was looking into getting m6 wheels buuut didnt think that would go down any better with you guys or my wallet )

There's a large gap between your headlights and front bar.

you mean the black line? If thats what you guys mean then yes, That is going to be fixed soon, after I figure out how to make the brake ducts work since they're apparently stock non-m bumper ones I think I can take it to a panel repair place and they can squish it back into place. sigh I was thinking this was a real M packaged beast but I think its just been overhauled by a holden fan :\

young

Edit:

Actually they just called me a troll and assumed I was a cop cause I didnt like their cars and I owned a little piece of euro. I dont want to dig my self a grave today but I know I somehow have and with the caffine running out in my blood stream my sense of humour is also running very very very thin
