That would look good. I don't think all black would look good on my white car, so I'll just leave my wheels alone.

Won a front and rear AntiRoll kit from Eibach Springs via a Facebook giveaway today! The challenge was to write about which car you thought was the best production car and why, so I wrote about the e39 M5.
