I like those taillights; they look even better though on 6's

Dare I say I feel like it needs some tinting to them though? Not a whole love, and I seriously dislike darkened taillights, but... the chrome in them is so much!

UPDATE

Removed the pinstripes and finally tinted the lights all the way around! Door molding coming off later this week. The rubber e400 disc is perfect for removing any glue residue for future reference. Now i need to lower her and throw some nice rims!

If I were you, I would lower the car before changing wheels unless you're going with some OEM wheels (mz3, rx8 or similar)... aftermarket wheels look weird with the car at stock height. Car is looking very nice and clean so far though, keep up the good work! Should look even better with the door mouldings off

-edit-
I hope that post was worth it, I just burnt my dinner -_- lol

i was going to order some quick struts with the springs already lowered with the Aftermarket wheels. Would that workout to my advantage? or should i buy the rx8 wheels and get them powdercoated gloss black?

UPDATE again..

Got these new Side marker LEDSs with white Rings on the parking lights, they also have 8 amber LEDs for the turn signals. I also replaced my reflectors with LEDS as well for parking lights. I really love the mod it makes the car stand out a bit more. It looks much better without the gold pinstripe on the car. It was killing the black on chrome look.

UPDATE

So today i got the bumper to sit flush with both fenders! I used some rapid repair to make new bumper tabs. Did some drilling and i was done. It makes me happy to not have to knee the damn bumper when i walk past it.
