I'm glad you got the balls big enough to do something unique and then stand behind it.

It ain't for me (and neither are the Seahawks or current Tennessee Titan jerseys), but if you like it, go for it.

I saw the car in person as well. If someone told me they had an AW M3 with hyper-green painted wheels... I may cringe. But after standing 10 ft. away from the car. It was drool worthy. Not my cup of tea, but the car is done right.

Don't listen to the nay-sayers. You like your car, that's all that matters.

Its all good guys, everyone has their own taste and this is what I like. yah I dunno what is going on with the hawks jerseys either. Not really a big fan either. I actually drove downtown seattle during pregame yesterday and it was quiet funny to see all the people point and look at the seahawk colored green wheels lol


I wanted to do something outta the norm and I believe I achieved it. I don't expect everyone to like or hell anyone to like it hahah but its one of those thing that is a love it or hate it deal if you like cool thats awesome, if people don't like cool no big deal it doesn't bother me one bit.


Thanks everyone else for the positive words, their are a few small stickers coming that I am having made that will help tie in the color scheme more crazyness to come this winter haha

I agree

makes me think adding colormatched stickers will take away from the car

I would remove all forms of chrome on the car. You may need to do some color coordinated green splashes in the engine bay and on the interior for tie-ins. Negative on the stickers. We hate rice.

Although I mentioned in an earlier post I didn't care for the wheel color, you do have a nice setup. What suspension you running and are you having rubbing issues. You're pretty low.
