I always liked that color. I don't like the wheels and I would lower it. Everyone has bad streets where they live.

Looks clean, but I agree, it would look much better if you lower it. I have H&R springs and have no issues, you just have to be careful pulling in and out of steep driveways.

F sport springs are good too.

Nice car but the wheels gotta go. I would get some stock 18" on ebay if I were you. I understand about the lowering. My office has a steep driveway that jacked up my Saab's front end many a time so lowering is out for me and the roads here are the worst.

Low and slow bro! Rims are your choice.

Nice color...

Rims don't suit the car at all. Like some have mentioned, stocks would look much better.

And definelty lower the car. I have RoadMagnet springs. 2 inches all around and pretty close to stock suspension feel.

Congrats on the 2IS

Like everyone else has said, you should consider lowering the car, springs or coil overs.

If you are worried about drop and local roads, consider Tein H-Techs or FSport springs, they give a subtle drop nothing too crazy.

What are your plans for the car?

You can get rid of some of that gap and still be very driveable on most streets....

lower it with coilovers. Dont get springs because your shocks will blow out quick in GA.
I would change the wheels too but to each is to its own.. and Tint to start out some basics.
