I'll pre-emptive strike on reading that sticky.....lower the car first and then look for wheels.

i'll look into lowering it first and fixing the airbox setup, ive seen a few green ones, that one i guess is a lambo green but in the thread the pics of it in the paint booth look really really similar.

I'd do air box, then lower. But, I prefer a healthy engine

At the end of the day if you decide you don't like the colour you can just invest another $200 and change it you work in a body shop. I like it it's unique

Not bad, even with the stock body it can look pretty good.

Put some Black 18" on it with a polished rim

And paint the rearview mirror caps green.

Put on the OEM splashguards & the S II small "Lip" Spoiler (Color matched ofcourse)

I think it would look pretty sweet

I painted the mirror caps green, for the spoiler for now i'm not sure if i'm going to do it green or black, i did the lower splash guards black for a lil bit of contrast.
