lol $5000 brake set on a $2000 car...sounds like a good plan, not a waste of money at all!

I often ponder that very thought myself... Why some of us buy a $2k car, spend $20k on it to be left with a highly customised car worth an amazing $10k, while others of us save and save and just buy a $20k car to start with. All personal preference I guess...

the old wheels are genuine 17x 8.5 inch EB GT wheels. As for the price of my car, I could have got one cheaper but then i would have spent more getting all the same parts the are fitted to the car already, Plus I didnt use anyone of my money to get this car as the payout i got from my old car was enough to pay for this one. Damm I sold the wheels off it for $1700 and if anyone can buy a el futura then find and fit eb gt wheels, lower it, add venom/ gt body kit, plus do the brakes stereo and exhaust and have it all fitted and finished/ paint for less then what i have paid then i congratulate them.

I agree, keep your comments to yourself Mitch. You said you don't like it and you don't agree with his decisions once... You don't need to continue saying it over and over.

mitch. you dont like the wheels we all know that so why keep going on about it. I anit bagging out your car because it only has 16 inch wheels and looks plain. I like my car and when i think about it, the car inclueding the purchase has left me less then $500 out of pocket

Mitch it's time to move on. Enjoy your plane Jane EF and get over it, no one cares that you don't like these rims, i've got the same rims as you and guess what they came standard on my car and they are crap.
