Default A little bummed...

So for the last 2 1/2 years I've had the only SSEi around here with GXP wheels. Today I saw another black 02 or 03 SSEi with GXP wheels on it driving around, with uncleared taillights and head lights. At first I thought, "that looks real nice" then it was a "wait a minute, what the heck?". Regardless I'm a little bummed. Should I take this as flattery? Should I sell my GXP'* and get other wheels? I really enjoyed having a one of a kind look going on around here.

ya know I had the same thing with my old truck everything i did to it others copied and yes it pisses you off i ended up selling the truck cause of mechanical issues but i was stupid i should have kept the truck i'd say take it as a good thing that you did something so nice that someone else thought it was cool enough to copy but hey i'll take the GXP'* if ya want to get rid of them

After rotting a set chromes in 3 years, I'm staying with OEM. I may decide to just run chromes in the summer. But the GXP wheels are a nice fit.

Nothing worse than dressing your whip to be one of a kind and then find that someone had the same idea!

Flattery, I'm still a one of a kind, but I figure one day that will end.
