Scored myself a cougar.

Looks good, but I feel it needs more tyre than rim.

mmm i cant decide if i agree with you or not, looks tits like it is. i think i would run a profile slightly higher if it was mine, but id be happy to have any E3!

Looks real nice ... I do agree with the more tire comment a little, do understand its the look youre going for though and it looks mint!

Congrats, I think youre the first person Ive seen whos nailed 'the look' properly with out it looking just all wrong and over done in a long time.

If your going for the look i think you are, you can get 35% profile tires over say 40% ... they look way better and looks less nznissancefiroflatpeakwayfarer, fk453 225/35r18 if theyre 8.5 ... as you go down in width of the wheels just drop the tyre size from there. Added bonus of it benefit legal too.

225/35 was legal on a 9.5 with the fk453 however I have heard rumours that Falken have retracted that statement meaning they are no longer legal.

Yup. They're being bought back into line with the others by the sounds of things.

Went to a Legit/split meet on Friday night. Snapped a couple of photos afterwards with some friends.

I was all for a front lip but the more I think about it the more I agree with Qube. The car from a side of profile looks good at the moment. Plus with how low it is it'll just bash into everything and break haha

Fair point! I just struggle with the ass being lower that the front.. Same problem I am having with my 240z.. from a side on profile, the fuel tank hangs lower than the front, The lip brings the front closer which makes me feel better hahaha.

It looks f**king awesome though!!! lip or no lip

Been a while since I've updated this. The cars been going well. Been driving it quite a bit in some of this good weather we've been having. I've sorted out some of my wheel rubbing issues. I've also replaced my RHR window motor so all 4 now work, It's my favourite part of the car. Here's some pictures from a couple weeks ago taken after a Legit/Split meet. Enjoy :)
