Yeah, the bottle caps are awesome. I would be running those for my street wheels if I hadn't gotten a good deal on 95m 15" BBS.

It was snug. But it cleared just fine. Plus it looks phenomenal. Like Shane Diesel if you're into that.

Well plans may be changing. My wife put the door into our gate today. If I go through the trouble sourcing a new door and painting the car it will look pretty nice. I might as well get some baller *** 6UL if I am going to pay up for a shiny paint job.

The map. You are all over it.

Sell wife.
Buy wheels.
Prison for a few years.
??????
Profit!!!

There's not much reason to go with a sleeper look on a Miata. Most 'Merican car owners expect it to be slow even if it has aftermarket wheels and a modified exhaust system. 4.6 Mustangs are easy to troll. Mine has peeling clearcoat and a mismatched hardtop on purpose. Nobody expects it to be strong. At the track the P-cars and vettes with polished paint aren't posting videos of ugly Miatas passing them. Maybe one day I will paint it, but that's money spent that won't make it faster.

Yeah I am a little wishy washy on what I want to do on the outside. It had the perfect amount of scratches and daily driver look for what I had planned until this door mishap. I am not selling the wife. She is hot and this point I am pot committed. I wouldn't get enough money out of selling her to make it worth it. I am trying to spend all my money on things that make it go fast.

A woman that tolerates deployments is a keeper. I still have mine! I'll bet she feels terrible about your door (don't worry about it, it will be a cheap fix in the end).

E30 community hates bottle caps. I gave away two sets when I had my two e30's. Honda kids and miatas love them for some reason. Just fish around the E30 forums for a free set

I guess I'm too late to suggest spinwerks painted flat black. I lost count of how many times people asked me if my 15x10s were steelies. No ******, they're 13 pound custom aluminum wheels that cost like a grand.

I think you get asked that because they're butt ugly. Just my .02

Painted black they would indeed look like trailer wheels.

Agreed, though they did look way better than my magnesium center keizers before those became permanently 2 piece wheels. And I think they still look better than the aluminum center keizers.
