**I WANT YOU** (to give me your opinion)

Ok here is the story, my current project is a series 1 XR6 which is very very stock..

My thinking is to buy a series 3 front bar, Pursuit 250 lip, T3 skirts and T3 rear bar which will cost around $1,394.17 (without painting and fitting) And can someone give me a rough idea of painting cost ..thanks

Then I want to buy a factory 18' inch alloy ...this is the part where i need you guys..below I have two rims..the T3 Pursuit rim and the BA XR6 rim





Now the T3 is $1740 without tyres...
The BA is $1000 without tyres...

Now i know mags are a personal choice but i would like some input from you guys...I like the T3 because it is a very classy mag on green but the $700 would be well spent on the bodykit...IF money was no object I know what i would choose but we all know it is...

and is the Falken 245/40ZR18 any good???

I know i ask alot of questions but I want this car to be a perfert, classy, WITHIN BUDGET car....

Thanks in advance fellas

second picture looks better to me, the mags suit the car more. The top mags are too square for the curves of the AU.

BA rims belong on BA's, T3's all the way.

Mate, for me its not even close. The ones in the top picture are WAY better in my opinion. Get em. You know deep down they are the ones you want.

Re: **I WANT YOU** (to give me your opinion)

Rims are so hard to choose..... I really love the T3's but the $700 could buy most of the body kit!!

I have been looking at Falkeen's ute all day tryin to decide....it looks hard
but I want mine to be both hard with the XR front but still classy....

The reality of a students income will probably determine my choice..unless any of you will pay me $700 for my AU XR 16's :)
