19x8.5 ET 45 (wanted to go 35 but i have to wait 3 months, so just pulled the trigger and get ET45)
19x9.5 ET 42

Tire size are 235/35/19, 265/30/19

Acceleration is awesome as they are only 19.x lbs each wheel, ride quality is about the same with OEM tires but you do feel the acceleration is much much faster. I am planning to removing the spare tires to reduce the weight a bit more.

Love the panorama, so jealous of your parking situation! I park in the FAR lot where only 2-3 others would park. Now it's become the popuar lot and I'm lucky to get a corner spot. So annoying. I might have to go back to the normal lot since these people are leaving that lot to come where I park.


Really do not miss VA's auto rules. Oddly enough the window sticker annoyed me the most when I used to live there. That said, with this car it would be the requirement of the front plate.

My window tint is 20%. Way too dark for VA. I got pulled over for 35% in VA and the cop passed two accidents to give me the ticket ...while I was on my to traffic court (sigh) to dispute a citation. I don't miss VA cops either lol.

Thanks for sharing your experience with these Forged Rays rims.
I am excited to know that acceleration has improved and I have never invested in lightweight forged rims.
Now is to decide between the black one you have and the "Prism" model below ...
(BTW, i removed the heavy spare tire the day I got my car )

a lot stinks about VA. the only good thing is theres a lot of places to eat and the diverse group of people. other than that, every *****ing blows nuts here! i hate the window sticker too! i don't know how long you were here but before we used to have both county and inspection stickers on the window! just horrible! at least they did away with one, now they just have to work on the other!

did you have 35% all around? or just the rear? i think VA allows 50% front, 35% rear. i still teetering back and forth about tint. i just don't think dark tint looks to nice on white cars. but then again i love the protection in provides. yes, i know theres clear tint out there, but still, it only blocks UV rays and other rays, but doesn't really block the brightness of the light coming through..or maybe i'm wrong? i dunno, i've never seen or expereinced clear tint, but thats just my assumption.

i was driving into DC this morning and saw a girl in a white AWD F sport. she had pretty good tint on her car, was gonna pull up next to her and ask what the % was lol but then again it was on the highway and i didn't want to cause a accident.

Pretty much sums up my thoughts on VA too - both your good points and your bad ones. Was there from 2001 to 2005 so with 9/11 and the DC Sniper, not exactly great selling points on the area.

They changed something just as I got there. I think I needed two window stickers but I honestly cannot remember. I remember my first registration bill being stupid high - over $400. My tint was 35% all the way around (minus windshield) or 20%. Still made me wonder why a cop would pass TWO accidents just to give the kid with tint a ticket.

I personally love dark tint on a white car, but I love contrast.

Your scenario made me laugh the other way though because I could just see the girl getting her response ready for what she thinks is someone probably hitting on her and then going, "WAIT WHAT?!"

I've got ceramic tint on my UW... and I'm in VA...50% front 35% rear. I wouldn't have it any other way. Pics of the car with tint are in this thread.
