Smile Time to catch up with you guys!

Whats up fellow s2000 owners? I haven't been on in a while and i figured id say hello and introduce everyone to my new wheels!

I ordered a set of Enkei RPF1 17x9 +45 all around. Wrapped in Hankook venus v12's 255/40 all around as well.

Car handles amazing and looks great. Of course i would still like to go lower but coilovers are out of budget


Had my good buddy Aaron at The Winning Formula roll my fenders and do an alignment.

hello there.. what a sheer pace and pleasing ride you get out of your vehicle is all an expert functionality of its wheel and acceleration combination which causes into a study speed to reach at less time to your destination so you must pay proper heed towards it to remove the chances of its early tear and wear ..

Great pics. Sweet ride. I got the RPF0s, love them. I honestly like the design of yours better but I went with mine because of the similar offset with the stock wheels.

I was worried about that when i got such a large tire but im hoping when i drop it they will tuck a little and help get rid of the rally car look. lol. And i am not sure what type it is. It was on the car when i got it and i haven't really looked for a brand or anything on it

Smile UPDATE! :D

Well last year i got a new exhaust (new to me) Greddy ti-c dual. Love it. sounds amazing and drone not TOO bad its paired with a berk 70mm hfc. The titanium tips have some weird markings on them i cant figure out how to cut but im not super concerned at the moment.

I had low pro aero side strakes on it for a while but pulled them off because i was tired of hitting my shins on them and really got tired of the look. I cant find a picture with them on the car but when i find one ill upload it!

After researching when i bought the tl, i figured out its actually a wing for the 3rd gen Tls

If its not for the tl it looks EXTREMELY similar.

Also one afternoon i was washing the S and in the right light at the right angle i noticed something that looked like paint defects. Ive only been able to see it a few times when looking super close and when its wet but its pretty apparent what it was. These pictures had a filter applied to them to make it much more apparent.

Seeing goofy stuff like this really makes me wonder who owned this car before....

Absolutely! But thank you! trying to keep her in good shape as well as i can! Im starting to get that oil color on my back bumper and im trying to figure out how to get it off

Also im regretting getting the 255 all around because for one, they are about useless being that big and for two they are so big they almost look bubbled out on the sidewalls. Will probably replace with 235s and a significant drop when i can afford it
