I have both planned before FF13 plus a "slight" paint modification to tie it all together. I am going for a complete black and silver theme. You can't tell from the pics but I have black Autobot overlays for the Ford emblems too. I haven't decided what to do about the calipers yet, I am considering powdercoated silver, black, or if I feel really motivated I will polish them with the dremel and clearcoat them. I am leaning more towards the last option.

I wasn't sure about 18s either because so many people have complained about them on their ZX3s (in fact the first owner of these sold them for that exact reason) but the ZX4 seems so much bigger and the SAP spoiler helps add to the "height" of the car making the 18s seem more proportional. To be honest I think this exact wheel in a 19 would achieve perfection from a proportion perspective.
