Boring Minnesota Saturday/Snapped some shots to kill the time...

I have a very basic Polaroid 5 megapixel camera so please bear with the quality! I gave her a nice bath early this morning and decided to take some photos and post them.

The car is in winter mode now with the 16 inch ASA wheels and Bridgestone BLIZZAK tires. There is nothing else too fancy besides the common LED tails, clears all around and a modest 30% tint. I have an AA exhaust installed but it is a bit crooked. Looks like she'll need some tweaking when spring hits.

Black grills and a 1 or 2 inch drop are in the works for this summer along with the possibility of some colored calipers and new rotors. New headlight covers are also on the bill. These are the first photos I have ever posted so I hope you enjoy them.

Nice I'm glad other people are starting to get their cars cleaned up and ready for summer.

I purchased the rims and tires from tirerack. After specifying my car, they offered wheels from 16 - 19 inches. Since they were for winter only I just grabbed the cheapest, decent looking 16's I could find assuming they would fit.

They do fit but there isn't much room between the rim and caliper! You'd be lucky if you could squeeze a finger between the two.

Some 16s can fit a 330 (non oem) , and even some 17s can clear M3s.
