Black Centres or Ally ??

Iv'e been toying with the idea of colouring the wheel centres and putting some dark tint on the windows, maybe dumping it a few more inches, what is the general feeling from the membership ?

    1 vote for making the change as long as you can still drive it and get it over speed humps.

    Looks good.

    I like it.. But do yourself a favour and don't tint it to the point of getting fined every time you drive it lol.

    i was tossing with the idea for ages, got quite a few photoshoped images aswell. to pull it off you would have to lower that 1-2 inches you said...... but as i was a p plater i didn't wanna atract any more attention than that big red P already does :(

    My vote goes to lowered, with everything else as it is (not a fan of window tint). Saw this car for the first time at the eastlink cruise, looks great, didn't even realise Rhys sold it?!

    I think the tinting shouldn't be so dark. Definitely a lighter tint. The wheels look good dark though but I don't think it needs to be lowered any further.

    I would go the tint on the windows but not that black. White cars look great with tinted windows.

    If it was me I would keep the wheels ally. Personally not a fan of black wheels.

    Car still looks great through.

    Cheers

    Get the darkest legal tint you can have. I have that and its not bad, quite dark but not black.

    Do the wheels now, they set the car off. Seriously. Do it. Now

    Lowering I'm 50/50 on.. If its still above legal and nothing scrubs then sure why not.. Mine is bang on legal height and I can't wait to fit some taller springs. I'm geting fed up with scraping everytime a leaf blows under the car. Plus my XE front lip got ripped off because the front was so low.

    Cheers

    yes to the black wheels.

    yes to a slight lowering.

    no to the tinting.
    not a huge fan of tinting on classic cars.

    go a charcoal on the wheels, not full black.

    dump it and just take care when parking

    get some nice and dark (and legal if possible) keeps it cooler in summer plus a little more security.
