Like the color, but please show more of the car! We can't even tell it's a wagon!

I am not a big fan of Sport Editions since the last set I had ended up with three of them bent within a short time, probably due to bad driving by a family member, so not a great memory moment for me. I'd say those look fairly nice and better than Contours.

I wanted to show off the rims mostly The car is a steel-blue and I love it to bits. I've never named a car before, but I did this one: Sabine. Good German girl. haha

It's pretty much mint too even though it's got nearly 150k miles on it. Runs like a top. Can't wait for my 500 mile break-in on the S-Drives to be done. My commute to work is a lot more fun these days due to excellent backroads.

Im glad i found this thread! Now I can see what the different mods and wheel combos look like on my 00 touring. The only question is which ones to choose!

Went from 17" M-Contour repls (Blizzaks on them) to 18" Sport Edition SE-14s with Yokohama S-Drives. I know I could have gone 19", but I'll be slamming it and didn't want to break the bank just on wheels and rubber. These rims may end up as my winter rims next season, who knows...
is it the camera angle, but is that a lot of positive camber in the rear?

Ha wow! I just went out in the driveway just to make sure the camber looks right and yes, whew, it's just the camera angle.

Scared the bajeezus out of me!

^ does the removal of the rails leave the bolts like the sedan/coupe? Meaning could you remove the rails yet install an OEM roof rack by chance?

Tire size and suspension specs needed!

Hopefully I'll get a drop and wheels soon.

I don't think it looks too small. Drop the front a bit, add a spacer in the back and it will look pretty good.
