you and me both! Have you looked into the RonJon body kit? I dont think you need to do anything with the front of the car but the side skirts might interest you!

If i had to do my suspension over I would have gone with the Tein's full coil-over setup. Trust me when I say that as I am on my 5th different suspension setup and I ma still not on the Tein's. So what I'm trying to say would be to save your money up and do it right the first time!

welcome to the boards. let me make some suggestions

15% tint.
coilovers if/when they come out.

staggered 20x8.5 20x10 or 10.5 roughly 40 offset for the back and 35 for the front.

and your set! I have yet to see an 8th gen on the road with the oem kit. take care of her.

Ok, just don't listen to this:

"staggered 20x8.5 20x10 or 10.5 roughly 40 offset for the back and 35 for the front."

that's just horrible. If you plan on towing your car to the show than do this, if you plan on street driving it, save your self some money and don't buy a staggered set. You'll ruin the wheels for one, and waste lots of money on tires, two. It serves no function but dig into your pockets.

well obviously our opinion differs. I think 8th gens look retarded with standard wheels. they stick in waaaaay to much. same thing with 3rd generation tl's. They just look better staggered and you kan do it and still retain great daily drivability. im factoring in only looking. not performance/handling etc.

And you won't ruin your wheels. maybe tires. I dont even know if you would have to toe the wheels in on an 8th gen if you are running 10" wide.

Just out of curiosity, how much do a set of staggered 20s cost? That's gotta be some serious coin.
