It's a bit aggressive in the front, rear is just about perfect. Needs to come way down all around.

Not too shabby. Are they white? Got any fitment pics? Seeing as you intend to only use these for fitment purposes, I feel like a flat five spoke multi piece like the tarmac would look great. Something about the busy look of that wheel detracts from the overall simple look of the car to me. And yeah, a little lower would help a lot.

I was actually thinking the same thing. The LM's (replicas, whatever) don't really look like I thought they would so I'm glad I didn't jump on the real deal from the start. And yeah, they're white. I'm experimenting to see how easy they are to keep clean in the meantime, lol. So far the brake dust is super light and not noticeable, but they're still a pain to keep clean. I'll probably go gold for the real set.


I'm actually leaning towards a set of these now:

Great minds think alike. Although, I'd probably go with a brushed center and leave the matte silver accents on the car for now.

Just found out they won't have camber plates though. Crap.

Hmm... same price? That's a bummer. That has always been such a great selling point of their coilovers for me.

Yeah, same price. The guy I spoke with said the only reason they wouldn't include it is if there wasn't enough room. I'm not too fussed over the price not being dropped, I just really want camber plates.
