The car feels more glued to the road and the ride more comfortable. I do have more rubber on the road and the weighted alingment can't hurt.

The tint is 25% I think. It looks darker than normal due to the light and some photoshop enhancing of the natural lights.

Mo, your turn now.

I really need to take that frog plate off.
What fog tint?

What you need are LED Tails...I kept putting it off, and one day I finally ordered them...And they are amazing...

Your car looks amazing with those ZHP wheels..Are those 17's or 18's...

Those are Umnitza's Orion V2 LED's, so they are pretty bright.


Here are a few more I took yesterday but did not have a chance to upload.

Your car has a very different look to it and it's unique.
I'd get tint on it and clear corners all around and it would look saaaaaweeeet.
Or smoked out front turn signals tails and side markers

Thanks. I just purchased the 18" OZs. And was looking at clear/smoked lens. I need to learn how to take and post better photos.

Use photobucket.com to upload/post pics.
I think the smoked backs, sides and fronts would look good on that car for sure.

definetly DON'T use photobucket if you want better pictures. Photobucket compresses the crap out of your files and makes them all grainy.

Use Flikr
