Everyone has different taste and goals but I like that your doing something different to stand out..****s low as hell but with the right wheels and setup your heading right down th VIP lane..Good luck cant wait to see this when finished.

I think your getting alot of negative comments because you jumped the gun and posted pics way too early. If you want it to sit super low, and still be very driveable, go with 21's. 20's are going to look small regardless, and with 22's, even at my current hieght, I am already rubbing when entering driveways.

thats too low on stock wheels, i wouldnt lower it that much while on stocks. I woulnt trust any custom made springs either, just makes it seem like some off brand part which i would not trust.

Those asanti 120s are some of my favorite wheels for the 7 but I'm just not loving the tucked look of the rear wheel.

I know this is an old thread, but does anyone know if the OP ever actually completed the mods that he planned to get done?

And someone answer Quarter's question

I'm not a fan of those Angel Eyes. A lot of these guys from threads dug up from just under a year ago or so don't post anymore. Whats up with that?

Good question man! It's not cool of them to just bounce when we're waiting on some updates

+1 on disliking the angel eyes

They are bright but they're too blue, it takes away from the classiness of the car in my opinion
