    Repost of my posts from other forums, and the car was only spot-on clean for the first 2 (though I didn't really detail it this round). The others are with half a week of driving dirt on it, but IMO they look pretty damn nice anyway. So enjoy OT:

    <Begin>

    Tein S-Tech springs, Matrix XRS 17's, otherwise stock. Just put em on and washed her up so I figured I'd snap a couple quick pics. Proper shoot coming later.

    IMO it could use a little more sidewall, so I'll probably go to either a 225 (vs 215) or a 50 vs. 45 profile for the next set. These 215/45 proxies came with em so eh...no problem there. Sticks like glue now (but they're loud).

    ----------------------------------------

    May as well post this..this is a year and a half ago, the first week I had it.

    I chopped them in prior to buying the car (and loved the look) but it wasn't cost effective to do when I did...so I did it now, when my OE tires ran out. :)

    ----------------------------------------

    Decided to snap a few more, now with custom A95 exposure trickery! (A couple didn't turn out too well, but I like the angles of them anyway). Some choppage could fix them up but this isn't the fotoforam so who cares.

    The paint looks awfully flat... what wax are you using?

    Which is why I posted it there, and suggested letting this one die :wtc:
    But it didn't work :(

    Since it is here, look through the product list, try some stuff out and post some new pics of it freshly detailed. :)
