    This belongs in Seville, not Engines, Northstar Performance discussions. Moved.

    The wheels are way too "busy" for the clean lines of the car.

    It does look a tad lifted, not bad looking actually.

    Hmm, I wonder if that wing is specifically for that body, or if the one on my car somehow fits both? No clue if the measurements are close enough.

    The black rub rails and chrome embellishment were stsndsr on the fourth generation Sevilles. Not fan of the wheels, at first sight I thought it was a Chevy!

    Good catch. Wonder why he did that ? Stove, Which side is the pop-up antenna on - the right ? (I see by Jim964's post it's on the right (passenger) side.)

    Older folk ???? Wanna do some twisties in a real Seville ?

    I'm a firm believer in never saying bad things about a mans wife or his car. The wheels are fine and looks like its riding as its supposed to. When there riding over the tires you have suspension problems air bags or compressor or lines. I have a similar model,(donked out) sorry (ghettoed out)if you mean by that every gold item my wife will allow me to put on it. Here's some pics. The sheepskins are great for hot or cold weather as they neither fry you or freeze you. The black 3m tape protect the chrome from luggage scraping against the chrome and is removable.

    NO -
    DONKED OUT -
    is the goofy big wheels and rubber-band tires -

    GHETTO -
    is all the extra gold stickers - plastic name plates and emblems -
