Took the beast on a 410 mile trip yesterday...made it on 1 tank of gas with 40 miles left on the Computer "Range". Pretty impressive gas mileage traveling mostly @ 75 mph!

pretty amazing mileage out of that joemorelli!

Adding some pics of my car I've taken. Does anyone else have AC Schnitzer bits? Mine were from the dealer when the car was purchased

Wow those AC wheels need spacers. That stance looks very 3.0. Other that rims, what other AC stuff do you have?

did consider spacers...might be something to do at some point.

got uprated calipers, custom exhaust from AC, the wheels and embossed badging on the headrests too. Didn't have the engine remapped as wanted to keep it relatively stock. you could sit there all day (and spend lots) but I tried to keep it relatively simple

I have the same AC Schnitzer wheels on my black on black 2002 4.6i, except mine are chrome, 30mm spacers in the rear, none on the front.

You guys must really drive on great roads. Those rims look tits, but I they would be destroyed in 20 miles of NYC roads.

19" style 69 wheels

Help. Can anyone tell me if the 19" style 69 will fit the 4.8is? I have a 2006 4.8 and the style 69 are from a 2005 4.4. I would like to get them as a winter set, although I have noticed that the best I will find in that size is probably all-season tires. Right now I have summers in the stock 20" rims, so it will help. We get snow where I live. Thank You.

Yea will fit. I have 18 replica 57s and those clear the front brakes just fine.
