Yeah lowering is def on the agenda. I was not happy with the way the color turned out but it has grown on me a little bit. I was looking for lighter gold/bronzish color but it was hard to match w/o the paint code. The color I wanted was Volks Winning Gold. It's not for every one and does take some getting use to. I was tired of seeing the typical black on MR and wanted to go a different route. Figured If I didnt like them I know it would'nt be too hard to sell to someone with JB or AW

I like how unique it looks now with the bold wheel color. Nice job on the tails! Not usually a fan of how that looks but in your case, they look great.

Sick!!! Props for having the balls to try this combo out, it payed off. I love it, but the most important thing is that you are happy with it.

I've had several people say they exact same thing, it does get mixed reviews. Some of them have even retracted their statement and said it looks better when they seen it several times. Regardless of a positive or negitave statement I still appriciate all feedback.

Thank! Personally I'm not 100 percent happy with the shade and will someday decide on a different setup. It's too much of an ass pain to just change the color when I've already waited 4 months for them to arrive. I didnt want the stress of waiting even longer, possibility of shipping damage and most importantly I had a buyer waiting that already paid a deposit on the 19 OEM's. So I'm going to let them sit for now.
