I agree- that's one "complete" looking red NA. Ever consider a front spoiler? Like the OE R lip? The wheels are perfect- 15"?

Yea, I wouldn't consider it "complete", but I am proud of it. I would like to get an OEM front lip and get the car painted, it needs it bad. The wheels are 16", and the turbo is a Turbonetics T3/T04E 50 Trim. Probably making around 250whp or so at around 10-12psi. Thanks for all the compliments. It means alot coming from this group.

I think they are Rota Grids, which are a copy of a Volk wheel. Or they are a volk wheel

If they are the originals, those are volk TE 37 Cups I believe.... Gunmetal with silver polished lip. I know a few cars running with them around here. Also they are probably 17's....

Didn't know Rota made a knock-offs....

Dave,

They are Rota Grids in Royal Bronze, and in that picture I am running 205/45/16's. I am getting some 225/45/16's for the back here in a few days.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the compliments. It is the reason I have no funds anymore.
Are those 16" or 17". I never had seen anyone with my wheels before. Your come awfully close! Very nice picture. Makes me want an OEM lip and to get the car repainted. Looks good.

16's with 205/40 Azenis. You should definitely get the R package lip.

Im gonna order one of those and a rear lip. Those wheels look perfect on your car though, they look just like a TE-37 until you see the rota name on them

I've actually thought about gettin volk center caps as they are fairly cheap on ebay, but that would sort of be ricey..I'd love a front lip, I just never can muster up $150 for something cosmetic. Damn college is eating my money.

So, I'm thinking of trying to get some coverage in SCC, what do you guys think? Is it up to snuff? I just called Edward Loh and he is supposed to get back to me (crosses fingers).
