Looks better but could use alot more spacer. I went from 255s to 285s rear (15mm), 19x9F & 19x10R wheels with 10mm offset shift (ET) on F&R, 25mm H&R DRA spacers rear. Total shift of rear outer sidewall is 50mm.

It's amazing how spacers can change the personality of a vehicle sooo much.

Looking good!

The bulbous wheel flairs and lower body profile along with the inset wheels give Xs a totally lame "hovercraft" look that I could not stand for on my X, hence the drastic 50mm outward rear shift I chose to go with.

Overall it was pretty esay but the console was a bitch. You have to remove it to get the pieces off. Plenty of DIY around for the console removal...
Looks good! (and I typically dislike CF int. wraps)

I'm thinking about either going with brushed graphite like I did in my E46



or Brushed Charcoal Titanium (leaning towards this)

Personally, I'm probably just gonna send my cluster to www.vdorepair.com and have them take care of that and the gauge rings one of these days, lifetime warranty and no worries about fading pixels again or that i screwed up my cluster.
Thanks for the help! I'm going to try to fix the radio's pixels first, it's driving me crazy lol
