Hello everyone!

Just wanted to introduce myself. I signed up onto this forum a couple of weeks ago, but this is my first post. I wanted to get my "new" wheels on before I post any pictures :lol:

My wheels are hand-me-downs, they're older 17 inch ADR rims, wrapped with 205/40R's At first I thought aftermarket wheels without lowering springs would look real bad, but after I put them on, it's not as bad as I thought. Someday when I have some extra funds to spare, maybe i'll get some Tanabe's to get rid of the fender gap

Other than that, all I've done is install some non-OEM yellow fog lights, and those chrome plated turning signal bulbs so the light housing doesn't look orange anymore. I've got lots of other things in mind that I'd like to do, so I'll be around these forums a lot :smile5:

Your a brave man riding 205/40's on those crappy chicago roads. Good luck and looks nice.

heh thanks for the compliments everyone! one thing I actually want to do is with the dark grey plastic 'skirts' on the bottom. whenever i see the Pampered Princess, i get jealous :p I was thinking of using the factory color code and getting them painted, anyone have any experience with that kind of thing?

btw mogh, yeah whenever i get out of the burbs and drive into chicago streets, it's like a videogame avoiding potholes :O

i asked before if they can paint my side skirt they said they can but extra clear coat is needed and clear bra is recommended :p then he said well thats for any side skirt because it will get hit by debris more than any part of your car :p

Aww, jealous of my little baby :) She is cute ...

One thing I loved about the sport package was the different body styling with coloured matched skirts.

If you do paint yours, be sure to post up pics !!!!

localnemesis: The skirts of my car have very little chips in them from rocks/road debris. One thing I hate about my stock contis is that small stones get stuck in the tires, and when I start to drive on the highway they fly up at the car. My doors have a few dings from rocks :( Other than that, the skirts are brand new. No need for a clear bra on them.

Hey, another Chicagoland member here!

I live on the North-Shore and have a Black '09 SL Hatchback W/CVT.

I'm currently installing a Kenwood DNX 6960 Nav unit W/XM and will post pics of the sound deadening and such soon.

So far, 45% tint all around, Weathertech window visors and floor mats, and a factory fog lamp setup using a factory stalk switch and e-bay "factory" fogs using 55W bulbs.

Future plans are a drop and 17's.

Looking forward to sharing ideas and resources!
