regarding the headlight assembly; have you seen the vip mag (style or car, i always forget which) from 2 months ago that had the ucf31 (after mc) on the cover with a sort of audi small led strip style put inside the headlight housing?? it was freakin awesome but the article said it took the guy way way to long to do it, so i was thinking that if you ever had to replace one of those led's it would be a beyatch... your shiz is lookin good though man.

The wheels are 20 x 9 (+30) front and 20 x 10 (+30) rear. I had to cut the lip of both the front and rear fenders to prevent any rubbing. The wheels are temp beater wheels until I can afford what I really want.

Anyway, here are the updated pics:



whats the name of those wheels??? damn does llook like 30series tires

A 20" wheel would be a touch nicer and they should be staggered. The car still looks amazing and functional. The drop is not insane and with the non staggered fitment tire wear will not be as much of an issue

The car looks great. The roof line on the LS is made for 7' basketball players. I ust noticed how high the roof line is on the LS430. I probably fit in the LS better than I would in my 3GS
