I thought so. The Rotas really create the illusion of a low offset, it's nice.

Looks great! I really like the look of the trunk with no 3rd brake light. Is that a TDR splitter on the front? I've been considering getting one for my car, but didn't know how it would look, but I like it!

looks great!

one comment though, and others might eventually chime in, that grill looks a little restrictive, at speed they apparently tend to create a wall of air and block a fair amount of air. do a couple searches, read what you can, and make your own decision though.

hiya,

won't know the output until i get my emanage sorted. have some wiring issues with the US spec Boomslang harness I bought. it's running a decat twin exit 2.5 stainless system, RX7 AFM, walbro fuel pump, 320cc injectors, and dual feed rail. hopefully up the boost to 8-10psi should be good for 180-190 bhp. Standard BBR is 150 bhp @ 6.5 psi. Also got a Greddy Profec B spec boost controller but in two minds whether to fit or not....
