Big decision...

I have a chance to pick up a few nice things before the winter starts and can't make up my mind. I have a budget of one or the other .... So it's either a set of


20" BBS LM-R
20x8.5 +32
20x9.5 +35
with Hankook K110 Ventus V12 245/35/20 & 275/30/20

Or

Challenge front lip
Challenge x-pipe
some spacers for the stock 18s
Stud kit
CSL Trunk

Decisions Decisions....

That's a tough choice. Is the car already lowered? Do you already have a rear muffler?

Yes, car is lowered on H&R springs, and as of right now it has the Megan exhaust on it, but that might come off if i get the challenge pipes.

Those wheels aren't very exciting to me so I would go with door number 2.

If he wanted the reg LM, I'd have been in total agreeance.

I wouldn't recommend using an aftermarket x pipe with an OE rear section. We've tried this combination several times and have not been happy with the sound. If this was my own car I would go for the X Pipe, trunk, spacers, etc... first, mostly because I am not particularly fond of BBS LM-Rs in those sizes.
