      I'm biased but the V710's look sweet!. I would recommend the gunmetal one or silver.

      Looks good. I've considered doing my calipers blue but I'm not sure if I'll like it. What did you do to wheels paint or powder coat?

      I wasnt sure if i wanted to commit to the black look, i used plastidip. i figured i can test the look and then peel off. Still trying to find a set of wheels i really like.

      Interesting I hadn't thought of using that on the wheels. How much did it take to do all the wheels.

      710s

      I'd say silver....unless you have a solution for the color of the lug bolts.... I don't think I would like the look of gunmetal or black with silver lug bolts.

      Just my .02

      Personally, I like the look (and price) of the OEM Bristols with the plastidip.

      I still keep coming back to the silver VMR's. the plastidip, was a great way to get the look without making a big purchase. I think that I am too old to run around with the new style of black wheels... lol

      I too say silver would look good on your car. And you can't go wrong with the V710s.

      Latest mod to the 2013 B7 VR6- APR ECU FLASH... at first I wasn't sure that it was worth the money based on dyno chart. I was wrong. Huge gains in performance all around. If you are considering it, its money well spent.

      Did do alignment after that?

      Anyone about alignment?
      Also do we have sponsor here with good price for H&R coil overs?
