I got a quote from one of the Linea Corse Vender and I was quoted for a new set of front two rims would be about $600.-650.

i dont want cops comming by when there is smoke pouring out of the slightly open windows.

i like the idea of it but.. not functional for my lifelstyle.
If you have your parking brake on and your lights turned off when you start the car, the DRLs will not turn on.

Nice! Glad to find someone who appreciates MT these days.

I regret buying 6500k instead of 4300K or 5000K. I wanna look stock.

I regret not taking my time when buying, I could have got a car that was in much better shape. Things you dont really notice when buying a used car such as paint chips and curb rash really start to bother you later on.

I also regret buying used. Because of my high interest rate on my used car loan I could have got a new IS250 for not much more.

Live and learn

I didn't know that. Is it just for one start/stop cycle?

yes, he is the LC vendor....

well if you got them used, you cant really blame the vendor as who knows what the previous owner had done to the rims.....

talk to Zoeb and see if he can get you a deal....good luck!
