    looks good. id take off the splash guards in the front tho. but it looks real clean man.

    get some black doors and a cf trunk, hahaha, then thatd really be a panda sedan.

    yeah 15" looks too small. 16" would be better.

    Re: A-cord's 98 sedan lx type AREz *56k.. YOU CAN DO IT!*

    thanks, yeah red/clears are prob one of my next moves

    lol thanks but i dont know why so many people dont like splash guards... cf trunk maybe.. but not so much doors hah.

    GCs are pretty soft for aftermarket suspension.

    yeah 15s are small but i wanted some ITRs and these were the only ones that would fit. i wanted some 16" JDM ITRs but they only come in 5lug. so i just settled for these. but i'll be upgrading my tires to make up for some gappage.

    yeah get some thicker tires. leave the splash guards and get a pair for the back, go panda, and slam it more. your car will be set. i like how it looks so far
