Raj Im a little too flashy to go with black. But this decision has thrown me for a tailspin. I cant put my finger on what combo will be the look Im going for.

Red, yellow or M blue. The red could be cool if you match the shade of red to your taillights. You going to tint those?

I think I'm leaning towards a yellow or gold. For some reason it just keeps standing out in my mind. It will match my gold chains and Versace sweatsuit.

Slammed, looks sick. Why black reflectors and not white?

We wrapped 1 in white and the color was soooo far off. I may paint them at another time.

i have an '11 Li xdrive and i'm about to slap the 22s on, but i'm also wondering how lowering with the 22s would affect the awd. i know i'm good with the rims, but the rims AND lowering combo might affect the awd so i'll most likely stay away from the lowering. i still wanna have as plush a ride as possible rather that performance bc i'll only be using mine to cruise around on the weekends.

You might want to stay with the stock wheels if you do not want to lower. 22's with low profile tires on a non lowered car looks pretty goofy. Look at my album pictures, I have before and after pics with the 22's on. Maybe you are ok with it, I wouldn't be.

Stupid question,... how do you keep your calipers cleaned one you paint them? Take rimms off every time?

The spokes are wide enough to reach through and clean by hand.

i actually don't mind the little bit of clearance as it is what i'm used to and i have never been into the whole slamming thing, but for those who are accustomed, such as yourself, i can see why u think it looks s"silly."

where is the best place to find a nice front lip spoiler and rear diffuser? also the roof spoiler on the back? and i'd assume u'd recommend the hr sport springs?

The H&R sport springs are great.

For the front lip spoiler read through here. The place I ordered from is gone.
