Forgot to mention, too - the car is an entirely different animal with these on. Sharp turn-in, sportier ride, and although I can't make any comments about the grip levels yet, I anticipate an incredible difference in the amount of grip. All these things are pretty self-evident, but I don't think I've ever had a set of wheels and tires make such a difference.

The stock 215/55R16s are just floppy in comparison.

Thanks for the compliments, guys.

Would have preferred a black wheel myself, but those are not bad at all. Why did you need to send back the Titanium headlights? Now you should smoke the rear turn signal and backup light. Leave the brakelights as is.

The headlights had condensation marks and junk in the lenses that I was unable to remove; they were defects from the factory offered on the cheap. So, I sent them back, and got a full refund that I subsequently spent on suspension instead. Much better investment, I think.

Everyone has their own tastes, and aside from black not being offered as a finish option, I'm not a huge fan of black wheels. Also, I'm aiming to distance myself from the tuner look. I don't want or need the unwanted attention from cops.

I'll try and get myself another set of Ti lights at some point, but I'm not going to pay retail. I'd rather get an exhaust than drop 500+ on headlights.
