Nice car... the rims look great on it and the interior lighting looks good! You should get some projector headlights and the eyelids for them, that would be an awesome touch for the exterior

Yeah I think I probably will. I should maybe put a "next up" list, cause there are easily 6 things I want to do before winter. Once winter comes i'll do engine stuff.

Rims are listed in my sig and in the first post, dz.

On the 23/27 I have it at, it's much stiffer than stock, but I think it's perfect. It's a good street setting. The only bumps where you are like "OH SHIT" are the ones that would easily fuck up anyones 22" with rubberband tires.

So far i've never bottomed out, and I park in a parking ramp at work, and have a decently steep driveway.

As far as it being stiff though, thats how a car should be, and I think it's perfect.

@ Hac, thanks, and also, do you like the Injen Exhaust? It seems like the only people that naysay on it are the ones who don't have it, and I kind of want to go with Injen for my CAI and Exhaust. If a nice turbo kit comes out in the future, I would probably jump on it, so there would be a minimal amount of justification for the 3", but whats your personal opinion on it?

Ok, i'm looking for some opinions.

How do you think these would look on my car? I would probably do the Projector Style eye lid with the headlights.

My car kind of has the black/blue thing going, so i'm not sure if this would compliment that or is it might be too much.

If ANYONE has these on their car please post some pics. I have seen them on some cars but I want like nice close-up pics if possible or some pics at least focused on the lights.

ALSO, I asked in another thread but nobody has answered me yet, is doing an HID kit with these harder than doing it with stock?

If I do the black color scheme though I wouldn't really want to just do headlights and not the tails, that would look off. I am worried about the pseudo spoiler looking funny though. Thats about the only hesitation I have.

I would definately do the headlights if I were you, theyd look real nice. As far as the taillights go, maybe if you got them tinted? Or if you just kept the ones you have and tinted those. Either way, I would tint my tail lights. If you get eyelids, you wont really have to do anything to the headlights, it would still look good. As far as the spoiler goes, Idk what one youre talking about to comment on that​

The stock spoiler is chromed out. I'm just thinking the black out tail lights right next to the chromed spoiler might look off.

Hmmm, you have a point there with the chrome stock "spoiler" thing, and your car has the black/blue theme? Whats the main color- black?? What kind of wheels do you have? And what color is your gascap?? I know, its like 21 questions... What if you could tint the spoiler thing?? That would be HOTT. Do you have any pics posted on here of your car? Seeing it would be a much better visual, for others to give you an opinion​

EDIT: Im an asshole-- I didnt scroll up and see the pics of your ride lmfao. Heres my opinion, search "rear tail light painting" theres a thread by BartMan, and he explains how to paint the tail lights with VHT NightShades and he also paints the rear chrome thing (and explains how to do that as well)-- if you paint the chrome peice black, tint the stock tail lights, or those new ones, then your problem would be solved, and the rear of your car will be just as hott as the rest of it! The VHT NightShades is a SPRAY ON TINT!!

I love the projectors, the taillights, not so much, but they match. You could always get the black projectors and try to crack your taillights and paint them. Or just tint them like jb4g did. As for the spoiler, there are 2 options: tint it like the taillights, or get a spoiler delete cover.

By the way, your first picture on this thread, those wheels look sick on your ride. :twothumb:

Thanks man. I'm glad people seem to like the rims. I am very satisfied with them, and I got a ridiculously good deal on them, so thats even better.

Skittle your advice is awesome. I actually talked to the guys at ACI that sell the projectors and tail lights and he recommended exactly what you said also.

So i'm thinking what i'm going to do is get the spoiler blacked out and black out my stock tail lights, and then buy the black projectors and blue eyelid. I might also get my gas cap done up black also, i'll have to do some research.

I guess I didn't pay much attention to the tail lights but gawd that one bulb is fugly.

Yup - jb4g has tinted/blacked out taillights and spoiler. Like I said, the other option is a spoiler cover in UV blue. There are pictures of them around somewhere. They look great too, much better than the chrome.
