Mediocre canon point-shoot.
Going to photoshoot with real camera soon.

Looks good, but I think the big side skirts would work better with that lip.

Beautiful. Pretty much my dream NB. Slowly but surely I think the deal is being sealed for me painting my car white.

Also x2 on the wheels. Sizes and specs would be nice good sir.

Just get a MSM front lip and keep the side skirts that you have.

The lack of rice in this thread makes me happy.

Looks really damn good.

Is there something weird about the rim of the TRmotorsports wheel? Every picture I've seen there's about .25" of rim sticking out past the bead of the tire. Or is no one close to the limits of the rim in terms of tire width. If that's the case, why on earth is everyone buying 8 or 9 inch rims to put 205's on.

I like everything but the wheels. Yes Curly, those wheels always look weird too. The lip is nasty and I think they pointy-shape of it makes it look weird. Gorgeous car though, I almost bought a white NB with an FMII on it a while ago.

thanx again for the compliments guys.

I'm not a fan of the msm lip. At all. I love my current lip. If I find 01 sides I'll use em, but probably not and that's fine by me. Not really anything I "must" change anytime soon.

As far as rims, yes the lip sticks out a little because you'd need at least a 235 for it to "look right".

I would have gladly gotten an 8" rim if stupid ******* tirerack actually had it listed for my car at the time. They were a present from my wife, and I HAD to order them right away and get them right away. It was either this or some rotas. I chose these.

Couple days later I find out that you CAN order the 15x8's if you go in there under some BMW or something.

Stupid ******* TIRE RACK
