Looks a thousand times better! The bumper and grille really cleaned it up. What else do you have planned?

Re: My POS EM2 got a facelift

Nadaboh.

(Needs a drop and blacked-out headlights.)

What wheels? That's up to you. Find some you like. Personally, I'm a fan of white-on-white, but I know lots of people aren't. But if you give me a side-shot of your car and some wheels you might like, I'll photoshop them on there so you can get a feel for it.

Re: My POS EM2 got a facelift

car looks much better. bronze wheels would look good on white. i think that black wheels with a polished lip would look clean too - but some people will say they are played out.

definitely find some wheels you like though.

Re: My POS EM2 got a facelift

Dude, stop bumping. This site isn't high-traffic enough to need that. Your thread's not going to sink down to the bottom. Chill.

And no, I don't think that'll be an issue with the mirrors. You should be fine, but eventually I'd look into getting some body-colored ones.

And about those Rotas, you can look at this thread I found:

http://forums.hybridz.org/showthread.php?p=873219

A great way to describe the relationship between "original" wheels and "knock-off" wheels is that Works are for the garage and showroom, Rotas are for the street and track. They quality is fine, I mean, they're an OEM supplier for some companies.

Re: My POS EM2 got a facelift

Hm, I for one am going to stick with the originals, meaning that I am not going to be buying Rota wheels. Not because the quality is not good. I'm sure the quality is just fine, if not great. However, I personally feel that the originals such as Work or Volk, are better then good. Does that make sense? I posted a video I found about Rays engineering here:

https://www.civicforums.com/forums/1...ing-stuff.html


The video goes in depth about how they design and test their wheels to be above and beyond street capable.

I've never been to the track, I do want to go some day, when I do go that one day, I don't want to take a chance that something bad is going to happen to the wheel. When I buy a wheel from a manufacturer like Ray's I know that I won't have a problem, because it's tested and true.

I don't know weather or not Rota tests their wheels in various ways.
