BIXENON stickers in chrome letters. I did the retro fit kit and they came with it. I figured i payed the money might as well use them to show off that they are not regular plug and play hids.

Plus its something different. Everyone blacks out their headlight so the chrome letters make it that much different.

A 1" drop wont be too bad. What are you going for...flush? My drop is only about 1.5". These will look good i think with only 1 inch...no spacers needed.

Hey just wondering, you still on the lowering springs?

I have H&R springs but I'm hesitating on installing them because I'm worried about grinding the wheels/tires on the inside of the wheel well as well as hitting bumps and stuff like that.

My car looks like how yours does with the Rotas, mine are 18"x8" 235-40-18

How was the ride and hitting stuff while driving?

I also heard you have to get camber kits or toe arms or lower control arms or something when you lower it? What did you do?

You should not have a problem hitting anything. I did not get camber bolts or anything. Just get an alignment and you should be good to go.

The tail lights were done by a body shop. They mixed candy black paint into clear coat and then sprayed coats until my desired darkness was met. Not a hard process and most body shops know how to do it. I have seen body shops charge anywhere from 150-250 dollars for this process. Its not exactly easy with our tail lights though since we have LEDs. Any type of foggyness can be seen when the brakes are pressed. If you get it done ensure they know what they are doing and that when you press on the brakes the lights dont glare off the back and create a foggy look to them.

I actually just sold the 19s mainly because the wheels I wanted finally became available. My car was mainly for show so the 19s filled in the wheel well nice but yes these were heavy so performance was lost. These 19s in particular got a lot of attention because of the wheel design mainly.

The car is in lingo right now and mainly stock. Future upgrades will include new wheels, suspension, and tail lights.

Picked up the car from the auto body yesterday. They had a compressor blow so not everything got finished. I will have to take it back again next week to finish up.

But they did manage to finish my tail lights. Absolutely amazing!!! Crystal clear too.

My wheels are sitting in my apartment until the rest of my suspension comes in. Got my coilovers yesterday and the LCA's should ship out next week they said. Then all that will be left is getting tires for the wheels. Which is no problem.

I would say expect a full update in about 2 weeks or so that will include pictures
