If the vents on the inside of the rotor are facing a particular direction, the rotors are supposed to be installed a certain direction.


That gold looks nice against the blue.

I saw this on Facebook and now again, and all I can say is WOW. You've pulled it off again man! I love how those wheels turned out and the BBK sets them off. How's the stopping power now?

Post up a pic of your turning signals in the vents too

+1 with the turn signals, I thought that was a cool mod.

Maybe a list of everything you added.

Looks great

Looks good man.

Can't wait to see it in motion.

Not sure how I feel about the vents though. But the turn signal is sweet.

LOSE the stickers.

I love the mods, but the color and the black wheels do nothing for the big body.

While I do love this color, on lambo's, I'm not feeling the color on the 7. Previous color was the best. Love what you did with the rear valence and exhaust. Nice work there.

I like the rims and the rear but overall I'm not a fan. I commend you for all the hard work and dedication you put into this project though. IMO the rain guards need to go......

I think it looks great! The wheels and BBK look really nice and the turn signal is original

You need to tint windows and tail lights . Your car looks different I do know if like it or not.
