Much like the others who commented, I prefer the OEM design. It's not that the VMR's look bad, I just think the OEM wheels look better.

The side shot is exactly what I was looking for. Can you tell us if you're using any spacers and/or lowering springs and if you're using stock tire sizes? I'm definitely sold on this look. Thanks for posting these.

The concavity on the VMR is just , that's why I like it.

Lowered on Dinan (about 1" all arround), tires are F255 and R285, 12mm spacers front and 10mm rear.

Probably because most people are used to seeing 359M rims on a Competition package equipped car, that 10mm (1cm) drop makes them look just right IMO.
