i wouldnt mind if u photoshopped it more, go ahead.

Also, I am lowered, in that pic I have coilovers on it. The rear sits a little higher, I didnt slam it b/c i didnt like the look it had with only 17" wheels.

that looks cool man. good choice with the wheels.

now it just needs to be raised just a hair, so the wheels and the wheel wells compliment each other. Then, add some red Porsche calipers. Finally, paint the lowers and add a rear window diffuser.

maybe i wouldnt even want to paint the lowers. Im really digging the Grey-Black look.

Do they sell the textured door handles? I guess I have never noticed them anywhere.

i dont think they do, but in stead of textured, why not just paint the door handles, rub strips, side mirrors, grille, and the badges - if you have yours- i think it would look sweetttt.. maybe yes/no?

I could paint the door handles, rub strips, and maybe the side mirrors.... black of course. Then just do a badgeless grill and leave my badges as they are... since they are already gone.

Man, Im really excited for Spring now, possibly doing some of this stuff. I just wish BBS wheels werent so damn expensive
