thank you! i tried to get it where the centers of the fenders were each at about 24". i'm gonna have to get it again though. after i got done i realized that i hadn't checked the pressure in my tires... and 2 were at like 27psi.

and i hope my paint is ok now! it's already cracked a little back there but it's not noticeable.

i'm worried about the height just a little bit. there are 2 big speed bumps out at the dorms and i have yet to see if i can get over them. i THINK i'll be ok... but we'll see lol.

i think the drop came out nice too! especially since i've NEVER touched my coilovers before. i had a shop install them. ended up being really easy

as far as rims go... i've been very up and down. i had my mind made up, then i found another set. then i had my mind made up again, and saw something else. it just keeps going like that. BUT i think i've finally narrowed it down to 2 different sets. both sets are rare (to the IS crowd that is) if you search my posts you can see what one is but i'm trying to keep in a secret. i'm either getting 1 set in 18x8 +37 18x9 +37 or i'm gettin set 2 which is 18x8 +37 18x9 +35.

Thanks, I want to sell 2 of the wheelsand tires so I can get wider rears. They make a 19x9.5 et40 I want so if I could find someone who wants the same wheels I could sell them 2 for their car and they could buy 2 more af the same size to match or get the wider ones like I want too.

lol i was gonna do the same thing with my XD9's. but then i decided it was probably gonna be tough to find someone that wanted 2 of them, AND the bronze was getting boring to me. so i decided i'm going to just change thing ups completely

i think these would look nice...you have blue lugs right? i think these might look clean with your blue lugs... "WEDS SA-90"



i have always like white on white...when done tastefully at least...

idk...what do you think ?

just thought I'd throw these in, dont know if you have already ooked at these. anyway, your car is nice man, ou have good taste, so i'm sure whatever you go with will look clean.

good luck.

thanks for the suggestion! however i'm not a fan of those rims... they remind of my friends rims on his civic.

but i thought about doing white on white. my plan to begin with was sell my xd9's and get another set staggered in white. but i've changed my mind. and the two sets i'm deciding between are hard to find so i'm going to have to buy them new. and they are too expensive for me to powder coat them right after i get them. so i've got to stick with the colors they offer.
