Hey, those were just a test fitting. I've decided to use spacers and wider tires with these 18x10's until I can afford wider wheels.

For what? Drag racing would be the only option because performance otherwise would be completely destroyed. Not to mention how ridiculous it would look on a low horsepower grocery getter.

Put some CSL reps on it, everyone on this forum seems to love those lol

I think you have your own vision and goals with your car and I can commend you for sticking with your vision.

"When desirable cars become available to low income youth...". I'll tell you what happens, all of a sudden some POS you look down your nose at, ass'u'ming everything about them down to their hobbys and how worthless those definitly are.

Driving around with there fancy window tint's, and there shiny tires. Disgusting. I'm disgusted.

All of a sudden they are driving a car that suggests to the untrained eye they are or could be close to your level. And because 99% of eyes are untrained, that mex rimmed Pos probably completely steals the sunshine in, well basically anywhere, except a BMW show maybe.

FWIW I think that black whiterims look is great. Not the biggest fan of the flares just because they are not smoothed into the rest of the fender. That's just me.

Maybe you'll actually add resale value, just market to all the poor inconsiderate youth out there apparently accuireing desirable vehicles. Just don't mention the hate level on 46fanatics and you'll probably be fine.

YES!

David Hugh's green E46 was soooo sweet. Those flares were perfect on his car.

I have seen pics of your car and theres plenty of potential in it. Like you said...some people dont have the vision to look ahead. Props to you for trying something new.


The mtech2 mods everyone does here can get kinda boring.
