    so here are some pics of the 240 hatchback.

    she's happy with me. she got silk road coilovers, s15 5 lug up front with nismo pads, R32 rear brakes and Vlsd.

    rollers are real Volk TE-37w/ +40 offset. 17X7.5 w/ 225/45 tires front. 17X8 w/ 245/45 rear. Tires are BFG G-sports.

    oh, and i installed a C's Short Shifter yesterday to.

    one of the cleanest right hand drive interiors i've ever seen. I have a silvia steering wheel waiting for install to.

    i'm thinking of snagging one of the blue colors off the G35's. It will go well with the bronze. dunno. i'm gonna make a poll on here next week.

    Look through M3 colors.

    I forget the color code of a M3 color that I saw on NASIOC.com on a WRX. It was probably the best looking paint color I've personally ever seen. I believe it was a blue or gray. It was awhile ago now but it was astonishing.


    The G35 blue looks nice though.



    Those wheels look nice, but look like a pretty good height sidewall. I guess you won't be feeling the bumps in that thing.


    Ditch those seats when you get the cash, and redo the interior and the car will be like new.

    Ohhh, ohhhhh.

    I thought of two more awesome colors.


    The New Mitsubishi Evolution graphite color, or the '06 STi CGM steel gray color. Top Secret Gold is amazing too, but I don't think they give anyone the color code.



    Oh, p.s., I think I found the name of the BMW special paint.

    "BMW special paint color "carbon blue"" or Bmw leguna seca blue



    titanium gray, ftw too!

    Wow, all these great colors are making me want to get the shitty Subaru paint off my WRX and repaint it! One day!

    Here's a link to a "What color should I paint my car" thread, with a bunch of cool colors...even if you're already set on a paint color!

    yeah, i'm going to get some seats later on. that is really low on the list though. roll cage will be going in also.

    i wanted beefy tires. kinda like, "don't fuck with me" look

    i like the G35 colors. M3 has some good colors to. thanks for all the ideas.
