Alloys/Suspension/Spoilers!!!

Postby tezzaian » Mon Jun 24, 2013 2:00 am

Hi, Looking to change my alloys on my tezza lowered 45-50mm but want to go lower maybe 60mm springs or coil overs, will be selling the 45mm springs and looking for something to replace them with... thinking about going with the 5 spoke amg alloys or somethin mad like that, anyone no if i need adaptors or if they will fit straight on and what is it needed if not.. 18" amgs on 60mm springs, also looking for black backed headlights and possibly duck tail spoiler and vortex roof spoiler...

Amg alloys have crazy offset so would need arches rolling, also you could use wobbly bolts, but not the route most go as not sure how safe they are
or pcd adapters, but then will space out wheels even more :wink:

I might have a set of black headlights for sale soon, there not genuine but split and painted.

Just need to get the time to swap them out with the ones I have in shed.

Na mate I'm going to go for gloss back instead of the matte I currently have.

I had toy'd with the idea of trying to wrap the insert with carbon but don't know if the stuff would tolerate the heat or if it would start to bubble and peel.
I might still try it though!

he's split the lights and sprayed the inside matte black, have a look at the thread, u may wanna try it yourself, looks fantastic if u do it right, step by step instructions, if u stick to them then its usually faultless.

u may wanna talk to some people on here about wheels, their really tricky,or go see your local wheel/Tyre man, become friends and let him see what can be done, its not rocket science if u know about it but can be a mine field if u dont!!

Create a profile in photobucket, upload your pics to that then just copy the IMG code into your message.
