Why are so many people giving silly code names to their cars?

Also its not a polar bear, its a panda bear! I see black around in places.
Paint the kidneys and throw on some whitewall tires...then well talk about polarbears

Why would you change the wheels? Truly don't get people that change the great performing and looking wheels!

To each their own and perhaps a nice touch to make the car unique to you

Yes and do people understand how good and expensive the stock wheels are? To me its very stupid to change those any not worth the money. Sure for pure track use a square setup just for that purpose might make sense. Other than that? Nope truly don't understand it. Seen ugly BBS and other stuff on this forum. But hey thats me...

As I am already running black wheels on my OPC, the 1M will be sorted with hyper black in the new year.....

To each their own. I changed to my OZs for 3 main reasons.

1) 17" tires are 15-20% than the same tire in an 18"

2) I can run a square setup now

3) My wheels just look tits, whats wrong with that?


Not saying that those reasons are interchangeable for 1M guys, but they make sense to me.






Also, Aussie, please dont get CSL wheels. That goes for everyone. Way overdone and youre car came with CSL wheels? So why spend that cash on such a small difference in aesthetics?

Don't worry, not changing wheels just the tone, hyper black as per the above to give them that defined dark shadowed affect rather than going black........
