I've got someone locally selling some 16" Style 5s if you're interested. I think they're $300.

Thank you, it grew on me as well, I wanted to go dark colors but this color has a nice look to it in the sunlight, that and it was pretty easy to match the flares nd skirts even with just a rattle can..

Appreciate it guys, but I'm not ready to start buying goodies for this car yet. Gotta de-clutter the garage and get rid of a bunch of crap before I start filling it up again

Hahaha I have a turbo kit sitting at my friends place that I can put on. Just not sure if I want to turbo the M20 lol. The only way I'll turbo it is if I build the stroker. I have a full M20 2.7l sitting at my trailer and my e30 has the 2.5l in it. So I don't know , maybe.
I'm doing a huge suspension overhaul. I paid jay a visit at stance factory lol. I'm just waiting for parts to come in and I gotta buy a new set of shoes too!!! Lol that's priority for the rest of this winter. I just can't finalize on a set of rims that I want lol. Only time will tell.

I also agree with cleaning up the color scheme of you car to bring out the rims. Don't change the color of the rims. They look great IMO.

I'm sure I can find the bill for my smoked Hellas and give you the sellers contact info. They were reasonably priced and included a 6000k hid kit with them. Let me know if you are interested.

IMO smoked hella projectors, smoked signals and stock fog lights will sharpen the front up.

Good luck and keep us posted!!
