I have those wheels and caps. I think they are beautiful.

The build your own car on the Porsche site doesn't have wheels that I have a taste for. These are elegant.

What? It's a nice dealership (largest Toyota dealer in town, brand new building, just opened few months ago) the Porsche dealers have gates so you can't go in at night.

My last car was a Toyota and I had a business that had to do with Toyotas so there is a personal connection.



On a separate note, I have yet to lose traction on dry pavement with these tires. They're just amazing.

Don't get me wrong, I love Toyota's... their bullet proof and run forever. And right now, their the only "sure" businees we have... damn automotive world.
Please, no offense was meant.

No offense taken. I spent 3 months looking for a used Lexus IS300 (my previous dream car) before I got my box, and finally gave up.

Toyota/Lexus are great but they're extremely, extremely boring. IS-F is still no match to an M3.

Here 'ya go. Terrible quality photo, but I was trying to capture the azaleas that were at the end of their bloom time and stuck the car in the pic per your kind request.

Sweet. So you have the same car except in black.

I'm going to tell you something that's going to bug you, you should turn your center caps on your wheels so they point to the valve stem. The guy that installed my wheels/tires (who has a supra and is super anal) told me this and I went and rotated them.
