Thanks, KG! Did you buy the KYB's or did you go with another brand for your struts?Looking good man. I just realized I'm pretty sure the ones I ordered are the FE3. Those rims look great man! I can't wait to get mine swapped!

Thanks, JT! As far as some of your obversations, I personally love the new black depos. Like I said, my tastes just changed over time and I wanted a more OEM look. I still like the look of the halos, but I just wanted a "clean factory" look. Also,the window deflectors do interrupt the chrome trim, and originally I felt the same way about them you do, but I actually really like the look of how it cuts off the chrome. It just looks slick in my opinion.Looks good, as usual! Those wheels really set it off. Man, that rear end is sitting REALLY high! Geez - I wonder why it's so high? Is it normal for new struts to sit so high at first and then "settle in"? Did you install them yourself or pay someone to do it (are you positive that they are installed 100% correctly)?
A few other "observations" and/or suggestions (please take this as constructive criticism!):
- I do miss the look of the halos - don't particularly like the orange reflector with a red car either.
- You might want to look into those little "non-foglight bumper, foglight-hole covers" - I think that they would make the bumper look a lot better. I just think the "holes" in the bumper make it look "un-finished".
- Since you have the "stick on" type of window visors, they really interfere with the chrome trim around the windows (it drives my OCD crazy!). I would either black out the chrome trim or replace the visors with the "in channel" type. However, with the WeatherTech "in-channel" visors, they don't make them for the rear windows on these cars. Personally, I actually like the look with only the front visors, but if you must have the rear visors as well, you can't use WeatherTech. Lund does make an in-channel set for front and rear - but I've tried them and they are nowhere near as nice as the WeatherTechs. The Lund design is a little different and still has to use tape to assist with holding them in place. The WeatherTechs don't use any tape at all. They way they are designed, they stay put without the use of tape and could never "fall out". I've also heard of issues with the rear window Lunds "falling out", even with the tape (which is probably why WeatherTech doesn't make them - the rear window design is just not good for in-channel window visors).
Anyway, so glad to see the car with the nice wheels installed - makes a huge difference in the overall look of the car!

And finally, about the front bumper, well, I've got some big plans in the works... k3:
Thanks, Jeff! I'm proud to say the 16s are now GONE FOR GOOD, the SS wheels are permanent this time!Lookin good Bud, muuuch better than the 16s!
Rear is definitely up there, but they should settle a bit over time. That's how the rear of my car sat after I lowered it down from the lift, but they settled pretty quickly because they weren't new. Definitely interested to see how they settle in over time.
