Ok so last week I dropped my car with Eibach Sportlines and was soooo disappointed in the car ride quality that I literally was gonna take them off... I waited til I put my wheels on and thank God I did... The ride is back to being smooth now (although obviously not as much as stock) and the car feels like a tank (in a good way)... Very sturdy and handles much better, but because of the wheels there is a definate noticeable loss in power...
Anyways here are some pics, Ill post lighter ones soon...

Looks nice, but I do not understand how those 22s would IMPROVE ride quality??? What did you have on there before?

Looks GREAT! Now just do the Hotchkis swaybars and then your handling will be complete.

I had stocks... I dont know why but the Eibach Sportlines were extremely bumpy with stocks... My friend would get sick when they would sit in my car from the roller coaster feeling of going through dips... With the wheels now the car feels totally sturdy... Of course the springs are stiff, but theyre not floaty/bumpy like before...

Thanks bro... No its the regular E&G grille... Im getting it supersanded and painted black though... They said theyll use this special technique that wont chip the paint... Shops the one they always show on Overhaulin in Huntington, so lets hope theyre good to their word...

Im not doing anything else to it... Just a custom in-dash dvd/tv player, but I havent seen any done for our cars that looks clean....

There's nothing like black on black on black

I find the grille accents really nicely with the lip of your rims. I've seen some pic's of 300's with the black grille & find that you can really see far in to the engine bay, but hey go for it & post more pics. Turns out I got the same grille on my 300, your just looks a lot better in those pics you took (the mesh looks thicker)

Thank.... I didnt buy them, I got them for free... Well not really free, but I designed the website for www.hipnoticwheels.com and got these in exchange for making the site for them...

And the tires are Pirellis...

The offset is 15 in the back 20 in the front... Bagging it would be sick but my friends have had such bad experiences with bags that Im not gonna go that route...

As far as the Bomex Im debating on what kit to get for it... Want something really simple and clean looking, I believe it was the Xenon kit that had just a little lip added to the front...

BTW I really hate those headlights covers, I dont know whats appealing about them...

And I am definately smoking my tails, thanks again guys

I hear ya. I really really do not like those fake Bentley headlight covers. Totally looks like covers for that wanna-be look.

The Xenon kit is a full fledged front facia substitution:



If you want just a subtle lip, I recommend finding a 300c front bumper, headlights, and put on the SRT8 front lip. Nicest lip-like addition you can find out there.

Forget bagging. KW V2 coilover adjustables. I'd do those if I could, but the wife no-likey a big drop, so Hotchkis it is.
