I'm not a fan at all, the car looks like it needs to be towed away.

On second thought it looks like your rims are to small which makes the car look off.

You need some 22's on there bro. It would look much better, or at least some 128's.

You definitely need some wheels. I wanna see a shot with some 22 or 128's. Also, you might wanna be careful of hitting a dip to fast... Might bust your tranny...

That's very low. I guess this is a large two seater now! Can't imagine rear seat passengers.

When he means custom - he probably meant he cut original springs. I dont think anybody ever dropped the '7' this low. WOOOWW. Way too much.

Ehhh not really feeling this look. The rear looks lower than the front which I dont like. Maybe its the angles your parked to make the car sit even lower. Your taillight tint or painted taillight looks dull. No rims and no tints on your car makes it look really incomplete. Elaborate more on what they did to the BG springs that made them custom or lower than they come?? Vip makes wheels with deep dish and huge lip and they wont look right on our big body 7s. Y not 22s?? Post some pics of the rims?
