They just seem out of place and a little on the tacky side to me. I used the dental floss trick behind the badge and sawed back and forth. Off in a jiffy Dick
    Good point, it sticks out like a sore thumb on the black. I usually just heat it up with a blow dryer and pry it off using a flathead and my finger as leverage. I dont like using floss because if you any dirt behind the emblem you can scratch it into the paint.

    It def needs the drop and maybe do a very light tint on the red markers/tails. They are wayyyyy tooo bright w/ the led's. I'll probally keep the calipers silver as i like the way they look on the v.

    ^ eventually thats the goal over the winter when the V will be in hibernation. Right now though its f'n great, after a few days and the V has a coat of dust/dirt and the rims are caked the v looks great still - i'll have to take a pic of her when she's still dirty just to show that the value of black rims goes further than just looking badass....

    Here she is dirty w/ brake dust caked rims...

    It reminds me of my 87 Grand National. I removed all badging and tinted the windows. People would drive by and stare at the car, obviously wondering, "What the hell is that?!" "That" will blow your doors off...

    Razorecko,

    How are you liking the Invos on your V?

    BTW: Wheels are looking sick!

    I like the invo's alot !, they're stickier than the ps2's. The road noise is about the same. They dont corner as well at stock psi but bumping it up to about 37/8 psi from the stock 32 and it corners just as nicely. I would suggest it as a much cheaper / good quality alternative to the ps2's. Not too mention the treads look wicked

    With the looks of your car with those rims on it, you could drive it through a mud pit and it would still look good!

    Your car is SICK!
