Your car is awesome! I love the drop and the splash guards. I vote grey. My 07 ser spec v was grey with factory gunmetal wheels and I loved that combo.

I'm meeting up with Rocker today to go over some vinyl ideas...

Here's a pic of the car after some low and after de-modding the wheels. I put 200 lbs in the trunk and let it sit overnight to help settle the springs a little because the car looked like it was trying to endo...I like rake, but there is a limit.


The black wheels looked better without spacers. The OEM look would require spacers, imho.

I have this kit on order for my wheels. Black base with a silver metalizer gloss over coat. Turns out. Nice glossy metallic gunmetal.

If you go back first page he talks about them.

They aren't covers, he used Plasti-Dip.

Gunmetal all the dude!!

Ok, I just got the dyno graphs in my email. Interestingly, my email can be confused with dyno85, but mainly on a day that I request emailed copies of a dyno chart... Give me half an hour to draw some squiggly lines to support my claims and get them posted.
