Is the lip anodized?
If so, has anyone had issues with fading? I've had some red anodized accessories on motorcycles in the past, and after only a few weeks, they faded to pink.

The wheels are HOT by the way.
Can't wait to see them on the car.

Nice wheels. Can't wait to see how the drop will look. Are those Tarmac 3's or 2's?

more pics, wheel gap sucks. i got the springs in the trunk and i've been on this kick where i buy like 3 things a week for the car and i get all ancy, in the last 3 weeks i mounted my tarmac's, relocated the battery to the rear, installed power locks on all 4 doors, hooked it all up to an alarm, little by little im setting up all hte features, i got manual, and the remote start is a little tricky, i installed a kenwood ddx712 from crutchfield, put a cheap subwoofer and amp till i get my hands on a kicker l7, replaced my spark plugs, installed cat-back exhaust from OBX.. my camber correctors are on the way, i bought headlights from someone here i forget who, they have the halo's already on them, i put a kenstyle grill, and i ordered the eyelids already, i also have the kit to do my calipers in red, ordered the EBC red pads, and some nifty red trimmed rotors off ebay cross drilled, so yea i been busy i do all the work myself, one day i gotta sit down and put pics on everything i did, this forum is the best ever, i couldnt have done anything without it,the wheather has been bad and i have to work outside and on the weekends, i cant start anything i cant finish during the week cuz then ill be stuck without a ride but i got a nice yard and garage to work in for now. .

in another two weeks i get my hotckis sway bars, front and back, and then the motor mounts, headers, short shifter, then i dont know, gotta take it easy... this list never ends does it? a few more pics of my undropped 3 with new shoes...

Good times. And when I found out that kid studied acting at NYU for that? Priceless.
