What do you think I should do with my car...

Well, now that my parts are coming in from RPM I have started thinking about what I want to do next. I know I want to get a drop and some rims. Question is....

What color combo would be good with my car's color?

My current headlights, Chrome Cobra R's, and about a 1.5" drop

My current headlights, Chrome Cobra R Y2k's, 2" drop

Smoked Headlights, Black FR500's 17x9, 1.5" drop

Smoked headlights, Black or Antracite Deep dish bullits, 2" drop



I KNOW the next thing I'm doing is rims and drop, as my car needs it bad. Just not sure the route I want to go. Opinions anyone? Also, give me your opinons on the drop as I do live in a hilly area and I dunno if 2" is gonna be too much.

Yeah, you wanna keep it 1.5 or less.

I vote for option 4 with a 1.5inch drop.

Re: What do you think I should do with my car...

My car is driveable just has a wacked up alignment that would be fixed by some camber plates.

No way am I going to raise my car, it looks to damn sexy right now with the drop. Plus once I get my 18's and new paint on her its going to shine

Re: What do you think I should do with my car...

Personally I am leaning towards doing the FR500's with a 1.5" drop.

I really like those rims but I have 3 good Cobra R's and only need one to make a set. Then just tires. Thats about 600 dollars cheaper than if I went with the FR500 option...

Now you see why I'm in this situation. Save for a sweet look, or just build on the one I started doing like 5 months ago.

Re: What do you think I should do with my car...

im going for the smoked headlights(non projector/ricer style if possible), anthracide bullitts(normal ones up front, deep dishers out back, and 18's for that raked look) and a 1-1.5" drop.

but thats just me.

I don't think FR500s look so great on 94-98s. They seem too angular for your smooth car.

Re: What do you think I should do with my car...

no offence, but all of those rims are kinda played out, and the 500's will be soon

i know this is a much more $$$ option but check out http://www.ccwheel.com/files/home.php those are sick that plus a 1.5 drop=sex

Re: What do you think I should do with my car...

Well I have thought about how many others have these wheels but there isn't really anything else I like.

I have looked at some other wheels but can't find any I like in 17's. Mostly all 18 inch wheels. I like the Moda R6, , and the Mille Miglia MM11-3,
