Default It'* been awhile...

...since I whored my SLE. I FINALLY washed this thing well today. It really needed it since I've hardly washed it since getting the SSEi. As many of you know, I swapped the chrome t-stars that came on the SSEi because the tires were pure **** and the SSEi needed the grip. Well today I just got new Potenza G009'* put on - same tire as the other car. I was originally planning to swap back, but now I'm not so sure. Now that I have the same tire on two different rim styles, I swear the t-stars feel a bit heavier. Anyway, my basic thoughts with the two cars are: SLE for show, SSEi for go. In that case I might leave it like this for awhile. Ok, enough blabber, here'* pics:







For anyone wondering why I disabled my DRL'* in lieu of running the projector fogs, here'* your answer Pictures can't quite do it justice.




Stopped at AutoZone and had to take another pic!

Honestly, you prolly need to buy another set of T stars....cause i love the look of them on the 40th

you know what would be amazing.....the 95-99 crosslace on the SSEi ( and the crosslace are the lightest wheel too)

Yeah.............

Leave the T-stars on the SLE. They do go better with the chrome accents

Hmm, maybe that'* it... I JUST realized my SSEi doesn't have those chrome strips along the doors/bumper . In conjuction with the chrome 40th badge and silver grille/clear corners, I think the rims add a lot to the car. Plus it gives me an extra reason to drive the SLE

I would agree with you, I have a 40th same color but the SSE so I don't have all the chrome. When I saw your car I was going to clear the corners, paint the grill etc, but it wouldn't look right without all the chrome accents
