Gotta give props for that post. It's actually readable, well written and presents the info in a clear, concise manner.



So, who actually wrote it?

One thing that is kinda cool that Lenny pointed out:



Not only do the factory wheels look great, but they even have a tiny bit of stretch to them! Yes there's some wheel gap up front but the car already rides pretty low. OEM styling seems to lag about five years behind the aftermarket trends, and Lexus got it right with this model, this year. I really think that whomever was the lead designer for this car really loves cars and is a driver's driver.

Nice work, Fae. I like the color combination (that was my second choice for my 3-series over the white/red) and think it should suit what you need and want very well.

I guess you're not going to have to drill through the wheel wells on this one eh?

His name is Yukihiko Yaguchi. I believe he originally worked on part of the design of several generations of the Toyota Supra.

I'd hit it.

BTW, I would like to point out that this thread has more views than the cat / kitten thread!


Faefae makes the best threads
