Dealership (that doesn't paint?) sent them out for powder coating. Said it would be about $500 less than the OEM gray wheels. They also sent out the Aero Kit for painting.

I recently got an old man center console cushion. Makes the 1.5 - 2 hours per day in my car slightly better.

Over the weekend mounted Bridgestone Potenza's on some Miata Rims.
added black valve stems and lug nuts. So much quitter compared to the stockers.
On a bad note, not it looks like I need to be lowered even more./

Also time to paint the calipers.

Looks good!

I painted my Pontiac Enkei wheels silver (they were white) and then took the winters off and mounted the all season setup.

Stg 2+ and too many modifications to list.

I got my Orange Virus Handheld Tuner set up over the weekend. frankly I was a little confused about it, but with Matt's help I got it dialed in and my Stock Data sent in.
Cant wait to get my tune files back and see what they do to my car.
