What did you do to the bottom trim? Did you replace the ground effect or whatever, or did you just paint them? I know my car is black, and the bottom pieces, at least on the sides are not painted, the are like rubber or something. Anyways, looks cool. I would also recomend the '93 M5 rims for these cars, I think those look awesome as well. I saw a red car like yours only he had full ground effect front and reat and a rear trunk lid spoiler, car looked awesome, if I wanted to sink some money in this car, which I don't, I would get the rims and the spoiler and mayber the ground effects, side skirt + front and rear apron.

: I'm running the Rondell wheels that look like the M-Contour rims. They are manufactured by the same OEM producer of the Contour rim, but come with a polished/machined lip in different widtchs and offsets (that are not available from the factory). I got them when they were new to the market, so I paid almost $1500 for them, but you can get a set for around $1000 now through Bekkers or AutoDesign Technics. I got mine through the latter source.

: If you want to see the wheels on the car, go to my little brother's web page:
