Update.. it's been a while, here's the changes:

- Car has been at the body shop, WALD kit did not fit well at all, ended up seam-molding the kit.

- Ended up ordering some new Work Durandal dd5.2 wheels and they have just arrived. Hankook V12 tires are ready to be mounted. 225/35/20 on a 20x9.5 and 245/30/20 on a 20x10.5
Went a little bit aggressive in the back...



- I ordered all my rear suspension pieces. I have Megan Racing Upper and Lower Camber Arms and Toe Arms.

- Got my AccuAir Switchspeed setup to go with my Air Runner setup.

- Sold my LX Mode grill.

Just waiting for my car to come back from the bodyshop and everything will be put on. Original plan was to make it for the SF Auto Salon, but it won't make it

So I haven't updated this thread in so long..

I've since changed wheels about 8-10 different sets.
I'll bump the thread again next week when they're finally on the car.

Anyone interested in my '07 Bumper and Grille with WALD Front Lip molded on? I was thinking like $700 picked up? I am ordering a new bumper next week from Forzato Japan and well.. I have no use for this bumper anymore as soon as it gets here in 6-8 weeks... Let me know.

The last and final look on my 3GS. Thank you SpeedElement for the labor | WDGarage in Fremont for the tires | Speed Image USA for the wheels. I would happily recommend any of these companies to any of you.



I'm running 19x10 and 19x11 setup with 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 Hankook EVO 2 Tires and it's the perfect amount of stretch.

So Speed Element ended up installing the Megan Racing Front Control Arm, only to un-install it right away because it gave WAY too much camber right out of the box because I'm slammed. Since I am static, I was at -6 in the front, they couldn't correct it enough to let the car be driveable so I just told them to un-install it and put back the stock one. This arm is mainly good for air suspension equipped vehicles, as higher you go up, the less camber.

How does your rear bumper lip hold up with the exhaust being so close to it? Any burn marks or anything like that? I just ordered a body kit and the exhaust may be partially blocked like that as well. =/

Holds up fine, no burn mark.
