    Hi everyone! First of all, let me tell you I'm addicted to this forum! I ordered a fully loaded temptation red pearl optima. However, I cannot find either a high resolution picture or videos online showing me how this color differs from a spicy red one. Is there anyone here with such a color...

    Took a while for them to be made to my specs but they are on and I couldn't be happier. Just enough concavity to hid that they are 18s. Powdercoat is great with a nice metallic finish. Forgestar F14 Gunmetal 18x9 ET 42 OEM 225/45/18 tires ARK springs DSC_1653 by homebrwd, on Flickr DSC_1652...

Nope, heard it clunk. Some gouges in the lower fascia and the lower grill got a small piece broken...
