    Absolutely stunning photography, I will give you that. 360 Forged surely did the shoot because I have seen many of their shoots and they all look similar. As for your wheels and height of your suspension - wheels are blah considering the infinite options and styles when going 3 piece. If I were to spend the dough for those, I would be wanting something that pops more and I am partial to 5 spoke designs. I am very happy with mine considering the attitude I am looking for, weight are similar to stockers, and price I paid. Your car is LOW. Looks gangsta and if that is your look then you met your goal. I can't imagine the ride being remotely comfortable at those heights. Nevertheless, if you enjoy it that way that is all that counts.

    TonyTone,

    While I like your car, I cannot stand the style of photographs. They look airbrushed. I certainly like looking at pictures of beautiful women, but there's something about airbrushed models that completely turns me off. The pictures of your car remind me of this. I almost want to ask you if you have any "real" pictures of your car.

    Again, it's nothing personal about your car, just the type of photo rendering.

    Tony

    Hey Tony,

    I didn't take the pictures. These were taken at a professional shoot for 360 Forged for their marketing. I just reaped the benefits of having nice pictures of my car. Here's a quick shot i took with my camera phone outside a store, but the car is veeery dirty in this pic




    I have one or two i took with my camera phone while we were doing the shoot, but I have to look for them.

    edit: FOUND THEM

    can't blame him. the stance of this car on the ground is killer. i vaguely scrape my diff or some rear component almost every time i'm at a speed bump, and my shifter every single time. if i have my hand on the shift knob i feel it bump up a bit. although not practical, you gotta pay to play so....

    I like the stance quite a bit higher. With fender gap just about 0...
