BigLare (Larry) has an Orange one with HREs. He's usually at every Cars and Muffins on Girard Street in La Jolla. I think it starts at 7 AM every Saturday morning. He knows the HRE guys too. You should stop by and talk to him. I'll probably be there too. You can show your car also!

Of course, I am asumming you are in San Diego...right?

I know Lare, seen his car looks really really nice. Trying to do something a bit different I guess but may just have to go with the 43s

Just don't go black and you will be fine. Black looks good in some cars but EVERYONE is doing black...do something a little different and it should look good. Will you be keeping your stock wheels? If you decide to sell them let me know. I'm interested in something for autcrossing.

Thanks

Gloss black looks cool and if it is your choice go for it dont worry about what everyone else thinks it is your car after all. For my 2 cents white alloys would look cool too, check out the link for white advans http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...ighlight=advan

Looking great, Aleks! BTW, what is the offset on these? Love the look on the last pic of the rears, they sit so flush relative to the fender wall! Is the rear lowered (seems that way though front looks stockish)?

Those are ET 22 all the way around ... it's a bit aggressive for 1m but ET28 or ET20 should be just fine ... the other option is to get ET22 but with 285s ... 295 that we had we a bit rubbing on the stock suspension ...

If you decide to order HRE's or any other wheels don't hasitate to send me e-mail or PM and I'll be glad to help you with the size/offset so you don't have to got through the troubles with fitment

P40 in charcoal satin would be my first choice - if i could buy them for the US price that is...

black or bronze should also look great

I'm in San Diego this week and was wondering where on Girard street people meet up. My 1M won't be arriving until mid-November, and I would love to see one in the flesh (although maybe it will make waiting even tougher).
