Yes it is. But with Seattle's weather you never know. It can snow tomorrow if it wanted to.

Car won't be complete until next year. Weather sucks in Seattle. I had the Vorsteiner lip since summer and haven't installed it yet.

Just a question here to the OP, maybe it had been asked already in the thread not sure. but I know pictures never really do the cars/wheels justice but when you had the Fi on without the BBK did it look odd? Or was it still pretty aggressive looking?

I was contemplating getting a set of fi but I have no need whatsoever to get a BBK so for that reason I can't justifying to myself getting a bbk at this time. However the wheels look so good just wanted to know your thoughts.

I'm not the OP , but i personally think a wheel like the FI looks odd without a BBK... But that's just me maybe?

To me, the FIs shows too much caliper compared to LMs or LM-Rs. Personally, I would get bbk with FIs. It it all depends on your taste, which is the most important opinion.

Our cars should have came with nicer calipers in the first place!
