    I love those wheels. I'm leaning towards black wheels however...specifically Enkei NT03 +m

    You have what's known as PROPER fitment. Nice meaty tires. None of that stretch/poke bull****. So kudos man.

    I was on the fence about getting black wheels but my last car that I had, had black wheels and I got wheels in black for my wife's car too. So it was time for a change. My first set of aftermarket wheels were in hypersilver. So I went back to what i know. The only thing i dont like about some black wheels is that it seems the detail of the wheel gets lost. But If it wasnt for me picking hypersilver I would have wait black wheels as well. The wheels you are thinking about are a great choice!

    It was so long ago its hard for me to remember but i know the turbosmart is louder and makes noise easier than the stocker. When I first installed the cobb sf and heard that bpv noise I had no idea what the heck it was. I thought to myself "my friend is going to blow my car up" since i bought the intake from him and he failed to let me in on this little secret. It seems also the turbosmart holds boost better and the sound that omits from it from time to time is much "cooler".

    Well I wanted to complete my exhaust to a full TBE since I already had the axle back muffler delete from Nameless performance I went ahead and ordered the mid pipe that they produce. I ordered the resonated one without mufflers. Yes It does scream but I like it. This car is no longer my dd so I don't mind the extra noise. Plus it sounds amazing. The turbo scroll alone was worth it. [/URL

    hahaha that's funny because I was thinking hypersilver or a hyperblack as well. I think Hyperblack would be the ultimate, but it's one of the least produced wheel finishes out there. We'll see what happens come Spring time. I also thought about the lack of detail showing on the black wheels, especially cause I want the NT03s...they are a very detailed wheel.

    that's funny. The turbosmart was a great idea. People have been known to blow the stock bpv as low as approaching only 18psi! So if you bumped your boost up past that, it was a good idea. Seems the best recirc to go with at this point are the Turbosmart valves or Forge valves.

    This mod i was able to do with the help of my friend.

    Well I also bought his Cobb intake since he wanted the AEM intake. Another win! The Cobb heat shield added a nice touch to the engine bay.

    So is ur friend pro tuned with his catless dp?

    Hey! Just wanted to say I'm a big fan of your summer wheel/tire set up. (Yep, already planning ahead!). Noticed you had your rear fenders rolled. Any issues with the size? How are you still liking them? I'm assuming you didn't switch to winters for the rare Snowpocalypse in Florida.

    Thanks!!! I'm on eibach pro kit (.8in drop) that slight drop made me have to roll the fenders. I test fitted a close spec wheel and tire combo letting me know the fenders had to be rolled before I put my wheels and tires on. I have zero issues at all with this setup. No scraping no nothing. I went with the 9.5 wide wheel because I like the concave look the wheel has. And the 265 wide tire, I love the beefy look. I'm more than happy with my wheel and tire choice. I wouldnt change anything. The michelins are so grippy. Also the overall look of the wheel has a nice appeal to them. And for the Florida weather. I live in central Florida for it to snow here well it just doesn't. Lol. Maybe north Florida. what kinda wheels/tires have caught your eyes?oh you just reminded me I have some more goodies to add to my build..
