Looking good. Did you actually reverse mount them with the low 30's/high 20's offsets? They don't seem to be at this offsets.

I don't think I've ever seen a color combination like this. Can't believe how well they go together.

Very, VERY well done sir.

I wasn't sure either, but I had a few pictures to go by. Surprisingly it's been done before. There's a gray VW GTI floatin around with BBS RS in cream. I think it is a very European look.

Yes, it's been a long, hard road. I definitely learned some lessons along the way and the outcome is amazing. I fell back in love with the car all over again.

Agreed! The wrap was nice for about 6-months, but I would not recommend wrapping a daily driver. Too soft and not as durable as paint. I didn't realize how much I loved the SGM until I took the blue off.

Thanks! I did not reverse mount them. When I did the test fit with them reverse mounted I found that under full compression the way the suspension moves caused the lip of the wheel to head directly for the lip of the fender. I did not want the two of them meeting ever, so I decided not to take the risk. With stiffer springs it probably would be okay, but I don't feel like dumping more money into the suspension and doing more PITA work. I'm really happy with how it looks and I can drive the car as hard as I want and not have to work about it.

Thanks!! It's pretty rare. Most people go straight to white, but I wanted something a little classier and more subtle.

Thanks!! Yes, the whole goal was to go back to the basics. The way the car sits now is pretty much how it will be for a long time. I might get an alignment soon to go back to stock settings (dial back some of the negative camber to extend tire life and look a little more flush/poke), but that's it.

There's beauty in simplicity... not to mention lips break too easily (had 3 on this car lol) Just wanted an all around beautiful, quick car that's easy to take care of and you don't have to worry about anything other than parallel parking.

Pretty much just a full bolt-on car now, no CAI, no tune, with suspension and wheels... and some minor cosmetics. Tint, interior wrapped 3M dinoc carbon fiber, carbon fiber diffuser, front kidneys, and mirror caps, tinted front turn signals, smoked side blinkers, white LED angel eyes and front turn signals, removed the slat on the front brake ducts, LED reverse lights.
