Cant go wrong with a set of 18's mate, just make sure you get half decent tyres, I got Kumho Ku 19's on mine which have been great, they're around $200 each I think but worth it.
Car looks nice mate good luck with it.

Just checked em now, Still looking good although there would only be about 15,000k's on em, originaly they were fitted with Dunlop sport max or something but I had them changed before the Dunlops even wore out as in the wet all it wanted to do was go sideways, not really what I wanted for a car mostly driven by my gf. The Dunlops were also roughly $300 each so the Kumho's were well worth it.
