Ended up going with the machined black 18x8 Niche Targa. Didn't want to spend $1200 for the TSW wheels. At least not yet.

As for the Eibach springs - No real reason I suppose. They supposedly work well with the stock struts and shocks, and have a great warranty. I saw you got some H&Rs too! Looking forward to the result.

Thanks! Yeah in looking forward to them

Great choice with the wheels! I know what you mean, the TSW's are amazing but they're damn expensive.

I've heard great things about eibach springs, and they have been around for years! Great choice in sure you will be happy with them. If I wasn't AWD it would have made my choice a lot harder!

That's awesome. Those will look really sweet. I was looking at these before I got the crazy deal on mine.

Thanks guys.

The plan will be to use the stock wheels as my winter set, and I will probably plasti-dip them for some basic protection against the elements.

Going to ride out the stock RSAs before I get new tires.

Nice! I went with 18 to keep stock size, and I like the look. I will probably install around April.

Placed an order for Eibach pro kit lowering springs and also added a few small things:

I redid the center console vinyl. Started to tear in one place so bought a heat gun to apply it correctly.


1080p Dash Cam - moved from the Milan


Shark fin antenna (Thanks to rlalo09 for selling) & CD3 vinyl

not familiar with the dash cam; just forward view only, recordable? also, what part of Chicago are you from? My pop is still there south of Chi town, where the Bears have training camp. Spent 17 years there growing up.
