I have PG2 19s, and the shop is willing to do a trade in for my wheels. So I'm paying like $1000-1500 on top of my wheels for the PG3.

Here is the pic of the GTR Bumper



PG2 and PG3 looks very similar, PG3 got an extra lip and it looks smaller.

GTR without a doubt, u already have coils, so the coils are out. you have PG2's already, which look WAY to similar to PG3's to even come close to be worth an extra grand. And you already have nice seats. I dont htink its even that big of a decision man, most definitely GTR!

Exclamation i think you gotta go for the wheels!

that's what people will notice. unless you run into other fanatics, that actually look at interiors and trim and sh** like that, you will get more attention with the wheels. girls notice wheels, not recaros or coil-overs. and by the way, who are you kidding? you will find a way to make more upgrades, i guarantee it! good luck!

You already sold your coils right, Calvin?

So just get KW coils first IMO...
