UPDATE
Tint wrap finally arrive this week and has been installed.
Love the effect, not ridiculously dark but still is a nice personal touch that makes the car look more aggressive!

Image

Also purchased a genuine STI front lip from the forums (thanks jay.ritchie!)
Installed with some extra tech screws and it's a great fit - really sets off the front of the car!

UPDATE

Some goodies have finally arrived! :D

Image

Got the email notification from Import Monster that my STI pink springs had arrived the same day I picked up some spring compressors! Very excited to get these installed into the car over the weekend (hopefully)!
Update/impressions(everyone already knows about these obviously!)/pics once they are installed in the car.

I also received some club liberty stickers, so if you see me around Melbourne now, give me a shout!
Any ideas on where to put the sticker will be appreciated! (I was thinking bottom of the back window)

Lastly plans for the near future are 35% Charcoal tint all round (have this booked in with Rob over in Ringwood next Friday), fixing up or removing the tail light tint that has started to bubble, and hopefully some new rims in the summer!

Springs are in!

After a day of swearing with a few issues during install, I finally got my sti pinks in!
Really love how the car sits now, the 18s now fill the wheel arches nicely and the front lip clears my steep driveway entry by a couple of millimetres.
Got a wheel alignment afterwards and the ride on the way home felt much firmer and nicer.
Here's how the car sits now:

Image

Unfortunately I have not been able to drive the car at all since the install and alignment due to a bad fall on bike that has required realignment surgery on a broken elbow.
Because of my current predicament I had to cancel my tinting with Rob tomorrow but will be rebooking with him once I'm healed.
Apart from that still browsing for some new 18s in Matte Black most likely, suggestions welcome!

First post updated with better pictures

So while I've been stuck inside on copious amounts of antibiotics waiting for surgery I've been looking at new rims.
Looking for something that'll give the car a nice aggressive look with the incoming dark tint and front lip.
Here's what I've come up - feedback encouraged!

1. Advan RS II 18x8 +48 $2400
Image

2. Enkei RS05RR 18x8.5 +42 $2000
Image

3. Work Emotion XT7 18x8.5 +46 $1500
Image

4. Volk G25 18x8 +45 $2700m (Probably out of the price range)
Image

Other rim (similar designs preferably) suggestions are welcome.

Yeah I noticed that too! Deeper concave is only on crazy aggressive sizes.
Not even sure 8x8.5 +42 would fit without guard rolling.

I have ADVAN RS. Mad looking rim and you get concave even in the lower widths/offsets. They look better with centre caps also.

Is that the 18s in matte black you're talking about?
Not too sure about the colour and I can get RSIIs for not much more but I'm definitely considering it.
Do you think their price is negotiable?

cruisn wrote:I have ADVAN RS. Mad looking rim and you get concave even in the lower widths/offsets. They look better with centre caps also.


Got any pictures Mark?
Definitely will be getting centre caps, the RSIIs definitely look like the front runners.

Input from anyone on the following would also helpful:

8 vs 8.5? (I have fresh 215s...)

Hyper black vs Semi gloss black? (Learning towards hyper because I think SG is too dark and detail is lost)

I actually just picked up a set of Advan RS's 18x8 +45

Same colour as the ones listed above + with centre caps. Sitting in my lounge room at the moment, just waiting on lug nuts before chucking them on. If you want some pics or anything let me know :)
