why do you hate them can you tell the difference, how do you know those are not replicas. unless you actually are looking for specific markings---- at a distance most times one can not tell. I must admit that i do prefer the original because of the precise built but a well done rep is not too bad.

Nothing special; all stock, but I sure do like to keep her looking like new. I have had her for one year now and have been keeping up with all the small items that have gone wrong with her. I also keep all maintenance up to date. The X is the car I have fallen in love with the most! (I've had quite a few different cars in my day )

Thanks! first up was getting all the important components maintained and replaced. I put a tow hitch on and tinted all the windows 20%. Next up ???? not too sure yet. Wheels is my first thought.

Yea, I think the wheels are a bit too chunky, maybe 20 reps apart from the wheels, maybe change the indicators and you will already have a completely new look
