Default Your Opinion?

Just wanted some feedback on the progress of my Saturn so far. Not very good with posting pics directly to a forum so I just have a link to them....

http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/inde...albumId=960644

Any feedback, good or bad.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Something about 5-6 spokes makes it look like it's on stilts to me. Nice job though, wheels do look better then stock. I plan on getting a set of 16" Eniki WDM's for mine.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

I'd say it looks clean but not overdone. The 5-stars look good. Some modern rims are kind of over the top but these say "classy ride" vs "look at my rims."

What size and offset did you use?

Impala SS 96 are sick. Except when people put like 20s on them. But yes if you are gonna do something illegal at least you are doing it economical. I mean come on with no body having money and Obama wanting to tax firearms and ammo, least you can save on gas.

Looks good, but I hope you only drive during the day. Tinted headlights = not a good idea, IMO.

Um, our side markers don't blink (unless modified to do so, of course).

Tinted taillights put you at moderate to significant risk of being pulled over for an equipment violation. Those tinted headlights make the car unsafe for road use, period. Your local constabulary would be derelict in their duty not to impound the car.

So far no pics of actual mods, that is, anything that affects performance.

I agree with the above that the lamp tints are a bit over the top. These were going out of style when the car was built new. Other than that, I still vote for classy.

+1 for not having a chunk of airplane wing on the trunk. A stock one might be a nice touch.

No performance mods, and there never will be. I find it a waste to modify the performance aspects of this particular car (no offense to those who have of course) I have no issues with my darker headlamps either. In fact I hardly notice a differnce in visibility with 10000k HID's. If anything I'll get a ticket for my lights being too bright. Never let current or past "styles" determine what i do and don't dp to my car either. Thanks for the feed back so far. BTW, lambos are next.

Not a fan of blacked out cars. I get the look, I just think is is a bit early ninties. I like taillights, I like headlights, Not a big fan of tinting them out.

I tend to perfer no-to-minimal window tint and crisp no non-sense look. I live in New Mexico which means dailies need to have something or it gets really hot and kills your interior. But my non dailies have very little to no tint. I like people to see me driving around. When I'm driving a cool car I'm a bit of an extrovert. Also, I like to have the best vision possible at night.

Not a big fan of advertising any non-paying comercial group or over the top club stickers. If they don't pay for the space or give me something, I don't advertise for them. I've actually have had 3 sponsors that never wanted me to put anything on my car. These weren't cheeseball sponsorship deals either. I can't imagine advertising for a something I had to pay for.

I like the wheels. I also like that you have realistic expectations from the car. Dispite it not being my style, I have to give to credit for doing something and not falling into any sort of bad "Pep-Boy ricer" mode. Please no Lambo doors though, please.

Its alright.. if thats your thing... I personally wouldnt mind finding a set of headlight covers, for a first gen sl/sw... but I wouldnt perma-tint my headlights... I like the rims... nuff, said. at least theres no ghetto wing, no huge coffee can on the back, and a license plate rattling cause of the crappy wal-mart system, that only broadcast bass thru one sub, and all the mids and highs thru the blown out stock speakers.
