Thanks for the update. I think I am going with the Eibachs as I have heard some better things about them as opposed to the Tanabe's

From my understanding TTE=Eibachs which makes sense since TTE is located in Germany....Eibach is German.....

Those wheels just don't do it for me. The ISF ones on the other hand, are awesome on the GS!

Now I have seen enough dark GS with the original F Sport wheels... I think the GS side window chrome trims do not flow with the F Sport wheels which is more like matte. De-chrome the whidow surrounding should make the F Sport wheels flow better with the GS.

Not a fan of the F-sport wheels at all. They look like dirty chrome and are too small. For the $$ you could have gone with anything else.

I like the whip man, the chrome trim does not take away from it all. You have the look i'm going for, stock performance. Just one more f-sport part to buy (struts) and i'm redoing the suspension, all f-sport. Struts, springs and sways.
