"Gonna have nice 5 spoke 17inch rims as well"

no offence but i reckon that 17's on a kitted BA are gonna look too small :)

just my opinion though!

Agreed.
BA's make rims look small.
18's at least, and preferably 19's are the go.
Other then that. I f**k love that lip spoiler, and the rest of the kit looks horn as well.
You'll need some go fast gear if you wanna smack an E-Series at the FM Drag day but!!! ;)

ok... will make them 18's... the wheels I want don't come in 19's so we'll leave it at that.


I'm glad you guys love it.

oh and Dave.. from one Dave to another I'll take your 5L V8 and raise you a... *sigh* go fast gear takes a close 5th after the body kit.

Stereo, Wheels, Exhaust, Bodykit and Go fast gear. The I6 has enough power to take that VR C*** who always tries to race me EVERY morning... it's got enough punch for the moment.
