Hello from Sydney Australia

I just got this the other day she looks great inside and out.
I can't wait to take her for a spin and see what she is really made of.
I hope I picked a winner

Very nice. I had chrome Porsche wheels and ditched them for some stock grey 19's and like it more. You will love the car once you get to cruise in it for sure. Good luck and welcome.

I agree, the car looks good... but swap the wheels when you can.

If you do swap wheels, make sure they're as light as the factory17s. Makes a big difference on off the line performance.

The car is a winner but those wheels Are the worst IMHO.
Swap them out ASAP. I have some I can donate if need be. Small donation $200?

What's wrong with the wheels and in what condition are yours?

For me they are too "blingy". But you are the only one that needs to be happy. If you like them, then that's the only opinion that matters

Nothing wrong with them. Just stock 17"
Shipping might be pretty expensive.
