I just wanted the best, so I bought the rays lugs. If I had to do it again, I probably wouldn't buy these. They're pretty much just regular chrome lugs that say Rays and cost $100 :(

When I do my roof I'm going to have it painted. I did vinyl on my last car and didn't like all the swirls I couldn't buff.
I'm either going to do a drop or exhaust for my next mod.

I would be much further along, but I've had 2 Nissan's the last two years that I spent the farm on. First one flooded in a storm and it just won Nissan Of The Month on Nissanclub. The second one I had to trade for this Focus due to gas mileage.

Drums before:


Drums after painting with G2:



I probably had enough paint to do the front calipers as well, so anyone else with drums could probably just buy one kit. I'm doing a different color on the front calipers. I wanted the drums to disappear. I did think maybe silver, but not with the black wheels.

$100 for lugs?!

Could have bought two sets of any other forged tuner lugs.

Mine were more

I don't see that price as being really outrageous.

I've already had 2 sets of any other lug. I wanted the best this time. I don't see anything wrong with that.

Also the glare isn't any worse on my car than say the new Escalade's new lights. It's not that bad really. I've never gotten flashed. Go take a picture on a iPhone of your halogens of the same angle and it'll produce the same glare in the picture.

You are defending HID's in stock reflectors by saying "it's no worse than any others."

Well then...

Oh ok since you guys told me to get projectors, I will. Get out of my thread if your going to tell me about hid's in non-hid housing. I've been on forums for years now and I've heard it all. You guys don't live anywhere near me so you don't have to worry.
