That car is gonna look sooooo good once you drop it. Personally Im a fan of dropping then wheels but eitherway you get the same result in the end. What did the wheels cost?

Thumbs up

Nice one!!

What tyres did you go with and how do you find them in terms of grip improvement?

I have a set of rims on the floor of my study waiting for tyres and I am keen to hear of anyone who has bought 17's as to which tyres are worth getting.

Congratulations on your purchase!

4.0l ! :) 5 speed! :) Gas? :(
