Default Chrome to gold

I put the gold crosslace wheels from the 98 onto the 99(better tires) and I like it more than the chrome Torque stars.

WTF -No Trash Queen!!!! That'* where she lives!!!! You know you shouldn't have given her the boot at photoshoot time.

Damn!!! Looks great -aside from the dirty engine bay. You should clean it -it allows the heat to escape easier. It'* true.

Now put them chrome T-stars on my car when you P.I.M.P. my ride.

Actually I'm quite happy with my polished crosslaces. :pimp:

Can't wait to see that car at the track ...so I can open a can of whoop-a$$ on yet another SII L67.

P.*. -pretty soon the only difference in looks between our cars will be the color of the rims and the exhaust tips:

Glad that you like them because it'* your opinion that matters but I'm trying to do just the reverse. I can only imagine how good those chrome t-stars would look on my car.

Actually if you had the 1996+ ghetto golds you would find they are a different shade of gold, and that little difference makes them a LOT more appealing.

Nice........I prolly would have left the t-stars on during the winter for ease of cleaning purposes......at least until most of the dirt and salt were up........but looks good!!!
