im 17, tint on the front is 35% and rear is 5% umm wheels i got for a smokin deal from a friend but wheels and tires cost me about 1000...took me forever to get my car to this point have been saving up for a long time, working all summer for the last 2 summers...but it has paid off i think...btw i got my 740 about a month before i turned 16 so i guess that makes me the youngest haha

i just lowered mine on eibachs 1.3 drop all around...its not too low nor too high like it was before...or you could get H&R stage II and thats 1.9 in the front and 1.3 in the rear and youll get a somewhat slammed look
