Looks very nice. Well done. Where did you get the rear window spoiler?



Great deal on BC coilovers. Hit me up. Whiteline dealer. Vibrant dealer.

Definitely adds a new dimension to the rear profile... not sure if I like it though... probably just me.

great find, though - and well done

I fucking LOVE those rims - they suit it really well and make a difference from crappy knock off rims.

Really don't want to throw out any criticism here, but are you saying you have 7" rims at the front and 7.5" rims at the back?

Quoting fuel:

why not?




Because of the circumference of the different size tires...

Unless you "stretched" them over the wider wheels.

why did you make the assumption it's running different sized tyres front to rear? 0.5" is not enough to make a difference, let alone warrant needing to go for a wider sized tyre that is mounted on the front.

Didn't assume anything. Just answering his question. I know I wouldn't want any extra difference in my tires when it comes to my drivetrain.

there is no difference in tyres (I hope). The difference is the rim width and perhaps offset front to rear. It may potentially affect handling (not likely) but as far as the drivetrain is concerned it will not be an issue at all.. provided the tyre sizes are the same front to rear (which we don't really have a good reason to think otherwise).

Cheeky can't you source these from HK via Japan, Singapore, or Malaysia w/ ease? Every one of these I found in Thailand was either cracked or sun damaged.
