The Vogue wheels look good. Much better than OEM.

Nice job. I like it...very, very clean look with the debadge and tint; makes me miss my blk/blk '11 ES. Just curious, why didn't you buy the Lexus 18" chrome rims? My dealership had a couple of '13 ES on display with the Lexus chrome rims; they're also nice rims.

BTW, let me know how well the Escort Passport Max performs. I've had a V1 for a while now and have yet to find anything better. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. Definitely appreciated.

I actually picked up the 18" upgraded OEM wheels with my negotiated price, but not in chrome. I think they called it hyper silver. I have to sell them now. I did consider having them chromed/PVD as I do like the look, but I chose to customize my car a bit to differentiate it from the others.

Regarding the Passport Max... Expensive, long wait for delivery, hard wire install, mounted top right high next to rear view mirror, and... SO WORTH IT ALL! So very few false alerts. Auto-stores fixed false locations after passing it 4 or so times. Picked up a trooper two (Florida) hills away over a mile out today. I even said it out loud this past weekend... "This is the best detector ever made." My advice, clinch down as you pay the money, but that is the only painful part to owning the Max.

Just saw these on this facebook group.
Album is here.
Not mine, and I don't think I would go for this style, but I thought it belonged in this thread. Interesting to see what people are doing this car.

Thanks for posting those. Pretty cool ride. I wish the mystery of where/how to get the parts to drop the car would be resolved. I see folks doing them and citing certain performance shops, but the performance shops state they are not making them yet. So I'm not sure. Maybe they are assisting this folks with special prototypes, which I guess is how the process starts. Or maybe there's some generic way to do it.

Edit: Looks like the ride above is on air suspension. That seems cool, but I don't want to give up my trunk space :P There's an ES here in Houston with air suspension. It looks great, but I don't know enough about it yet.

Those wheels remind me of gold grills for their teeth... don't know why. Not a bad thing, just not my thing.

That's a sharp looking setup. I never considered 22s before, but they look like a great and natural fit.

wow 07 camry stuff fits? Fantastic!! Thanks for the info on that. I was wondering how that Avalon was dropped. That's the black one right? So can you share some more info on your awesome setup?

1. What size are the tires?
2. What is the offset on the rims?
3. No fender rolling needed?
4. TPMS and other stuff still works? Everything still works as normal?

I love the look of your car man. Sick.
