me likes the rim job

I never realized how much those new Lancers look like a mini Acura TL.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

i am really in the minority here when i say the original rims look better IMHO... on some cars the black rims look good but on others it just looks like you had the hubcaps stolen.

either way you dress up the wheels that is a nice ride... congrats

Congrats on the car... not feeling the all black wheels tho. They look pretty good if they have a polished lip or rivets or something. The stock silver wheels with the silver paint job of the car looked pretty good.

Looks like the front could use a slight suspension drop now... (I'm good at spending other people's money)

Those new Lancer's are probably one of the best looking small cars out there.

I as well do not like the black wheels. Black wheels belong on dark colored cars. I wish I could afford a new Evo, the new body style is very nice.

I'm not a fan of the black wheels either. They look good on some cars, but I don't think they do well with the silver.

That being said, I like the Lancer. The front end looks like a shark. Nice ride.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Tee hee....


mebe.........


Thanks for the responses guys! I Really do appreciate it.

So far my thoughts on the car is this thing is Phenomenal! I no doubt best the car for the money, <+10K more no question. I went out driving WRXs, nissans, etc. etc. and with the options I wanted put the price way over the value of the other cars.

The options it has and the quality of it.

I wasn't digging the black rims before, but the blacked out front accents sort of brings the wheels together. Lookin' pretty good

Definitely needs tints though.

Muskrat your not the only one. I cant stand the gun metal black rims

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
