    getting

    brake pads/slotted rotors
    kyb agx shocks/struts

    forsure now that leaves me about 1k...


    1 of my wheels is unbalancable ,and 1 of the other ones has some minor curb rash (bad pothole :mad: :rant: )

    so i either need to get 1- 18*9 y2k cobra R and HID conversion... and just do whatever with the other like 300 bucks. (open to ideas)


    oor do i do no HID conversion, and get a completely diffrent set of wheels

    in 18x9 and 18x10 instead of all 18x9


    if so what other wheels? was thinking maybe fr500s but idk(want to keep them under the 1k shipped mark, must be 18s (already have rubber)



    now the reason i'm considering switching is.. 1.. rear width diffrence.. 2.. the silver of the wheels dosnt quite match the top of the car, so its something that kinda bugs me.. still looks fine but idk just think if it was black (like the tint) it would "match" better.. i really dont know..

    18 inch FR500s are like 600--650 shipped from americanmuscle.com, maybe if you are lucky like me and get them for $506.32 :p


    and your car is really unique...never seen anything close to a color scheme like that, but its hard to match up wheels to it...i woudl go for hypercoated or chrome. :dunno:

    thats the problem i'm having now.. anthricite (sp) color wheels dont match the grey, i'm not a big fan of chrome.. and i had polished wheels before and i will never do that again (pita lol) so now i'm like ehh what to do loll


    and unique was what i was going for.. i dont want to see another car close to mine... if i had a stock car its no biggy, but if i'm spending this kinda money, i want it to be unique :pimp:

    get chrome if anything, neither black or anthricite would really match your top half

    1 new wheel/HID

    I guess it depends on how your night time driving currently is. If its bad than get the hids and 1 wheel. If its good/okay than get the 4 rims.

    Wheels, definately!


    I"m also thinking chrome would look good with your paint, but either way, wheels would be a big improvement.

    That is a good idea. If you got new wheels, black or chrome would look the best.

    get 10" Y2Ks and have all 4(der) painted to match the top grey color, and maybe painted mirrors to match the grey also? HIDs would be sweet also.
