I think the exterior would look way better with 22's, an ACS kit, and a black front grill.

Interior looks great! The exterior paint scheme and wheels I'm not feeling too much. Makes the mods look outdated. Thanks for sharing though

You should also either painted The whole car white or ONLY painted the roof black and the rest of the car white. That would look much better, the current two tone does look like it belongs on a Chevy impala. Besides that everything else is amazing

Alpina old and new come with 21's.

In my opinion, 21's are the smallest aftermarket anyone should go. Anything smaller, your better off leaving it on stock wheels.

I thought you were getting air ride?

The dash trim looks good. Its a bit reminiscent of the Individual interior.

+1 on the interior. Its your car, you did it how you like it. Let me also remind people who don't like the "extreem" mods on these cars that these are customized hobbie/show cars. SEMA anyone????


A few things I don't, like:
1) The wheels. I think the centers woulda looked better painted all black and the rear shoulda been staggered. I'd also rather see 22's but hey, why not be different.
2) The black paint on the trunk looks like you got a trunk off another car and stuck it on there without painting it. IF it were me doing a two tone paint job I woulda tapered the black in a V shape from the rear window to the license plate indentation. Or better yet I woulda had the colors meet a little lower along the lines of the car.

But its your car, not bad.

The OE just gives you an idea of a good starting point. If done right, there is always room for improvement.

never had 22's and like i said to me they are more for looks/shows...with 20's i still got comfortable ride since rubber is 35 rear and 40 front...but wouldn't mind having 22's just not sure about ride quality and tire wear
how often you have to buy rubber on yours??

found these chip foose 22's here locally but not sure if they would fit my 7 especially after installing b&g springs couple days ago
