Sweet, Looks good! Are those 17's? It looks like you could've went a lil lower in the back. Those TRD's don't do much of a drop but your cars is tight and with the drop even tighter. Celi of the Month...hint hint Isaac, hook um up!

the eibach sportlines rear springs would lower it perfect in the back. its a 2.5 drop in the back and it wouldnt hurt any thing cause the back doesn't rub anyway. Your front is lowered perfect and it looks like you may be having problems driving it over bumps. That Blitz front is lower then I thought. I can only imagine if you lowered your car 2 inches all around with a blitz kit that joker would be hitting everywere. I rub my veilside at least once a weak with the sportline drop.

P.S. Time to update the Sig

Looks pretty tight man! I think you need to do something with your headlights. Bat's H5 or some spray tint would do the trick. Here's a pic a just saw of bat's h5:

Also you mentioned getting Clear Corners...I dont know how well that would go with your car..what about just smoking your side lenses

on the left side, I never took the layer off to reveal the tape part...I left it on...
on the right side I did and MAN was it a BITCH to get off...
I used pliars to lift the piece off without scratching the car...then the tape just kinda peeled off...
stupid APR left some marks on my trunk...gotta get it touched up.

Why do the wheels look so much smaller on this car than on others with 17" rims??

Is is just because the drop isn't as low on this car?

Sorry guys I'm a newcomer and going through a lot of searches which are bringing up old threads I have questions about.

I don't mean the rims necessarily look smaller, but the entire wheel/tire looks smaller inside the wheel well. On most of the other cars with a drop the gap isn't as obvious. Maybe its just my imagination.

Well, the tires are very thin 40 profile's too, remember that. The lip also does give the illusion of a smaller wheel.
