Very nice!! you must have spacers on those wheels, and what did you use for tire size? they look wider than stock.

thank's guy's, eibach pro kit, koni ylw, 10mm spacers in rear, took out the 15mm in front, they were rubbing like crazy even with rolled fender, I think 3mm or 5mm will work but will not make much visual diffrence since I am going with 225/40/18 front 245/35/18 I did not want any rubbing whatsoever also when I had the 15mm I just did not prefer the look of them sticking out rather than tucked made the wheel look to big. I really wanted a more matte look for the wheels but last minute they could only do 80% gloss but they look okay and hold up better and when dirty they look less glossy.

Wow, so clean. Looks great man.

I may have your black twin soon. This is exactly what I had planned for my stock wheels - painted in semi gloss gunmetal grey. Similar to the finish of Ferrari 599 GTO's BBS FI wheels.

Hey buddy I love your car.

I am getting my Alpine Angel Eyes v3, but I have no idea how to install it. Do you think you'll help me do it if I pay you?

I'm really late to the party here but I wanted to add to what you said about the spacers. I up sized from 215 to 225 tyres up front and 245 to 255 rear. On stock suspension without spacers this was fine but I noticed a rubbing problem with stock suspension with spacers added shortly after.

I initially installed 12mm rear and 10mm front spacers which caused rubbing over dips (M-Sport suspension) at both ends. I looked at the rear, it was tight but I reckoned a couple losing a couple of 'mm' either side could stop that; I swapped the 10mm to the rear and problem solved . However, that left the 12mm now up front which caused a horrid squeaking noise over dips when the tyre caught the liner, worse than the 10mm. I wasn't a fan of that at all and I also wasn't as keen on the square look that both spacer sets created together so I removed the 12mm up front and installed 5mm in their place. The car definitely looks more aggressive than stock, a slightly wider front with a fat rear so this is how she'll stay. To add she is also having a new suspension kit installed this month using Eibach Pro springs; I'll be able to give a definitive answer on 'rub' then if anyone is interested; I know it's often mentioned and I'm happy to share my discoveries.
