Nice! Has the car been lowered or is it the 20 inch alloy making it look a lot lower?

The car has been lowered with AC Schnitzer spring kit, which not only lowers the car by 25 millimetres but also gives the entire suspension set-up a more sporting tone. Very satisfied

And no catching on the wheel arches ? Would you say if 12mm spacers on the front, with the 20inch and springs will catch the arches?

I got my windows tinted and it made a world of difference with the appearance of the car. It looks much more aggressive now. I did 15% all around including the hatch window. I still want to do black exhaust tips and maybe black out the grill, but going to work on my loan balance for awhile before I do anything else

There`s something about the contrasting colours of white and black added with a bit of aggression from the red tail lights along with the raised spoiler that would make me want to put that on a wall. Great picture and sweet ride.

These aren't expensive, and the coating on them that makes them black also sheds exhaust carbon build up with just a wipe.

Awesome, thanks for the tip (or tips, har har). I don't mind the stock chrome ones, but I got mine CPO and the exhaust build up is already on there pretty good. I figured black would hide it best.

Iíve got these black tips. Slightly larger than OEM. I think they look great.

I got the black figuring it was easier to hide the carbon on black tips than try to keep chrome tips clean, then was pleasantly surprised when I found the carbon wipes off them completely with a paper towel.

Yeah that's great. I was interested in them for both the aesthetics and ability to keep them clean. I think the black would go great with my car, considering I'm blacking out most of it. Nice upgrade on the cheap. Thanks for the input.

Thanks, I ended up ordering these as well as a blacked out front grill. A couple relatively inexpensive mods that will make the car look really nice and a bit unique.

Love the look of that!

I have a black one arriving this week and was wondering what wheels would look good. I was thinking of dark wheels like yours but was unsure but think that will be the way I go now. I am also ordering black front grills just need to decide whether to go for Matt or not lol

GT owners tend to be older, old enough to know that a black car needs washing every ten minutes or ten miles, whichever comes first.

This is very true! Luckily I don't mind washing the car too much as it gets me out of other jobs the miss wants me to do
