Thinking about painting an extra set of stock black kidney slats Titanium today.

Just curious as to what some of your opinions are... Black or Titanium?

Not much difference, put the money toward some spacers to lose the hovercraft look.

Yeah, I can always switch back if I don't like it. Titanium look grew on me though.

Well, it won't cost any more than around $10 for paint.
I already have 25mm spacers on the rears (above was an old photo) :thumbup:

I vote for black. So these spacers I have seen talked about everywhere, are they worth the money? Dependable? Good for a DD?

I think so... 25mm H&Rs were $130 shipped for me (from ECS) looks & handling improved slightly. I've ran spacers on my daily drivers (many different sizes & wheels) and have never had a problem.

looks great! makes me almost want to keep my 69s and just throw spacers on the rear (i'm still debating selling them and getting 87s non staggered and running them year round)

No issues with the H&R 25mm DRAs along with a 10mm ET wheel shift and a 255 to 285 (30mm) tire width increase. Moved the tire sidewall out 50mm a side.
