    Thank you all for the comments!

    I like them, but I think I'm going to get new wheels for spring. Someone around town has the SAME wheels as me and is the same colour with white roof and white bonnet stripes! It kinda pisses me off because I was the first one with them! argh!

    i feel odd saying this, but it needs smaller wheels. Some BBs would be choice.

    wish i had a bigger pic but these are hot (although still big) :

    Nice, I really like the coopers but they are too much of a roll over risk.

    I've seen 2-3 rolled over on the autobahn.

    I am pretty sure those LMs are 18s, althought I do love them, I can't afford them. For 18s they are about 850$USD a peice!

    btw, here are 17" BBS LMs on a Cooper

    rollover? wtf? their roofs are low and the car has almost no overhangs :hsugh:

    of course an idiot driving around @ 150mph thinking theyre race drivers is a whole nother story.

    it wasnt a height issue, its just that im a size 12-13 (Depending on shoe) and the pedals are too close together. When i went to test drive it i was wearing casual dress shoes, which is what i use 5 days of the week and i had to twist my right foot in a wierd way to be able to use the gas without pressing the brake at the same time :hs:

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did you purchase it for? I'm looking to get one within the next week or so and am trying to see how good of a deal I can get. And how do you like it so far? Any problems?
