Finally got springs and got rid of 296's

Originally planned on getting 20's but couldn't pass up a good deal on the 326's without RFT. Debadged and blacked out center caps and roundrels. Waiting on painted reflectors and planning on getting a 3D front lip for non M bumper. Also got the side skirts from R1Andy(they look great by the way) ready to install but going to put it on at the same time when I get the front. Here are a few shitty iphone pictures.

These wheels are one of the best looking stock wheels IMHO.

Yes 225/255

I hope they are real. I tried finding replicas but the only ones I found are the 313's.

It was a toss up between these and the 313's for me in regards to stock wheels.

Its a little bouncy but not too bad. Handling is a lot better and feels nice around corners, body roll reduced. I would say the ride is smoother than stock springs with RFT.

Looks great. You stated you got a good deal on the 326's? Where did you get them and how much?
Love the drop. I need to drop mine. The gap is just too large with stock springs?

Do it man. Looks so much better!! The handling and reduced body roll is also a huge plus.
