Nice - all the better with the black background on the plates - I wish they were legal here. Cars always look better with black/silver or black/white plates IMO

Hi, Awsome looking car
Quick question regardingthe front lip on your car, did you paint it black or did it come from the factory like that. I want to do the same with mine getting a White A250 AMG Pack. Thinking Carbon Wrap will also look good on the lip and side sill inserts.

Looks awesome! Are the wheels 19's? And did you lower it more?

Thanks fellas!

@AMS1979 I plastidipped my sideskirt sills and front lip with black and then glossed it. As you can see it turns out more satin then a high crystal gloss, still i can live with it. I believe with white, either black or carbon would turn out real sweet! I would prefer carbon if you ask me. All the best!


@joes I'll be honest, i took the picture when i had my old wheels in it, so it does seem lower.. but having a driver + 1 passenger (total of 2 people) will already make the car look like that. The wheels are 20x8.5 all round, all my friends thought it was gonna look like hotwheels (a hatch with 20") but as you can see i proved them wrong.
(I guess the color and the spoke design comes into play too, but hey I'm happy with it.)


@Anzz keep us updated with your car buddy! no modifications or personalization along the way?

Hi Loevess,
Thank you for the feedback you car looks good and unique, I'm also leaning towards the carbon esp with the white. Does the 20" affect handling and ride quality?

You never answered about speedo? How was that affected with the bigger wheels? Do they scub at all?

Going 20's doesn't really effect performance.. i think these wheels are probably about 5kg heavier (in total) compared to the stock ones i have, so it's really not that much difference. They're also wider which provides more grip, and don't forget the cambering that comes stock, all driving still very smooth and i'm very satisfied with it.

Speedo Calibration? not too sure man. Will have to get that checked, but i don't see a reason why it wouldnt be fine.


Thanks dan!


Also i did watch fast furious 6 last night, and after the movie finish, i went home and tried to catch up to a yellow light, i was going near 100 and did a turn, the car skidded for about 0.3 seconds and then i got it back in control. Can't really blame me, the movie is quite contagious. Hahaha

Changing diameter will put your speedo out use a gps speedo on your phone to check.

Bit of a worry no spare and no run flats.... I worry not having a spare even with run flats...
