Quick, picture rant.

Ok. Quick rant on people taking pics to show new mods or get opinions from but take them from RIGHT AT the car or sample.

If I'm gonna ask opinions or just show my painted brake calibers why the hell would I show them like this?

It's actually lower now and those orange calipers are just photoshoped. I just used it as an example.

I want to see as little of the car as possible when taking pictures. It lets your imagination fill in the blanks.

^^^^^ This too.

...and while we are at it.. Put LS3 or L99 or M6 or A6 somewhere in your user details... under your Avitar, in your Sig just some freaking where so when you start posting about mods people don't have to ask...

I saw a post on here where the person asks how do we like their rims and the car was on the wrong side of the sun so all we could see are shadows. Annoying indeed.

I'm sorry, I didn't notice the calipers. My point of focus was the silver gas cap on a black car. Why on God's green earth do we feel the need to draw attention to it? White cars with black caps, black cars with silver caps...

Hey PQ... You have a sweet car... put the black cap back on tho!!!

And I agree with yours and Emmas decision... 20s are enough!

Are you guys switching back to 20's because of the ride?

I lost the stock one when defenderworx put that on my car. I've just been lazy in buying one.

Performance.......... The ride is fine. (unless you buy Savini) Hell, I have coilovers set really stiff. I don't mind a rough ride.

22s just dont' grip the road AT ALL. Plus they dont grab the curves and they lose you an amount of rwhp. They just aren't made for performance and I used to argue that fact until I bought some and found out myself. When you buy 22 inch wheels you ARE giving performance up. There is no if ands or buts about it.
