Jimmy's Progress No.2

Thought id start a new thread because the other is a little out of hand and slightlyoff topic.

Ok so most you know i did a couple big purchases last month. After running around today like a psycho, everything came together in the end. Id also like to say a huge thanks to the Worx automotive to make it happen in such short time.

So most of you know my huge Fark around with my adv.1 wheels and tyrepower hawthorn. I ended up selling my old set of wheels for nothing. Some of you may not believe me, but i ordered a new set of wheels from tyrepower hawthorn simply because they gave a price cheaper then anyone else. I wanted a set of 18" wheels because i want to do more track days and they are a much cheaper tyre. What wheel you ask? i went with the te37SL black editions. i wanted a wheel that will clear big brakes. Wheel specs

18x9.5+22
18x10.5+20

So ordered my wheel and thought why wait for a BBK? i ended up buying the ones WackyD was selling for a price i couldnt refuse.

The car was dropped of to Worx tuesday and everything was put together by today, and wow. The car feels completely different. The wheels require some camber up front which makes the car steer like a racecar. Car needs a wheel alignment which is happening saturday. anyway enough talking here are some photos.

I think the normal SL is just one colour, mine being black editions the lip/edges are like a gun metal grey. It's funny the actual finish of the wheel (paint wise is like 100x better then my adv.1s. Also getting my red stickers put on next week. Trust me bud I'm broke now!!!

Ahaha thanks Declan, how things have changed. I can't wait to try out these r888s on Sunday, they felt so sticky just driving home and they weren't even warm.
