    It looks good for sure! But it would look even better if you lowered it. What are your plans for suspension? Anything in mind, are you gonna go with springs or full coilovers?

    I would repaint them to another color. I like the rims, don't know how the gold/bronze works with the white paint.

    Wow I'm a big fan of gold/bronze wheels on white. Don't mind what anyone else says about how they look as we all have our own opinion on things.

    All you need now is to lower your ILX and it will look awesome!

    thanks man, and of course. A majority of my plans are in my sig. As suspension wise, im currently debating between megan racing coils or d2 racing. Imo i wouldnt waste time on anything spring/coils that dont come with top hats. I did a few suspension swaps on these newer acuras/hondas and swapping out the oem tophats to put on the new ones suck.. one time i lost all the bearings... Worst day ever. A big plus to buying coils with tophats is that a majority of them come with camber adjustment.

    Ill have new suspension for this thing as soon as i can decide between d2's and megan racing. Ill also write up a review for either one i decide to grab so you guys dont have to freeball it like i did. Windows will be tinted this weekend hopefully, muteki lugnuts will be replaced, and ill add on full aero kit in a couple months minus the decklid/spoiler. And after that, ill just be collecting wheels and dressinh up the engine bay.

    thankfully there's plasti-dip.


    SlammedILX.... would you ever consider plasti-dipping your rims a different color? would be cool to change it up every so often.
