A little half assed. The other pic was much harder, too much reflection and very bright. I cant do anything useful with that one.

So your not able to do anything with the other pic of the car with the stock wheels? Like he said before, The lighting is too bright on the wheels. I tried for you too, but They come out looking really bad when you darken something thats so bright. The aftermarket wheels definately will lokk better.

Are you entirely positive the new wheels are balanced correctly? Sometimes those little sticky wieghts fall off.

They probably need a good balancing. Well, you have plenty of time to get the wheels looking good for spring, so we expect a good job from you:p . The stock ones would look cool in gloss black if your really anxious to do something with your car.

No im not to anxious..im not going to to this untill the spring it was just a thought..i think this winter im going to focus on the engine bay appearance..what would you suggest to make this look nice..is it safe to scrape all the paint off the DI and and then repaint it?

No worries. Just dont put the di upside down. Remove paint with sandpaper, the surface is not very hard to scratch.

Not a big deal, but there is oil in the.. dont know the word. Those.. euhm..
Well. It's oil in the di. If you put it upside down (red side down) the oil will run away from the spools (is this the right word..?).
The oil will come back, but there has been a couple of people who's di died after doing this. If all the oil isn't back where it's supposed to after it's been turned upside down, the cassette may burn up. Not burn - bonfire. You get my point.

So... better safe than sorry. But i dont think it's big risk for something like that to happen.

you could take your valve cover off and take the black paint material off and it comes out really shiney almost chrome like, with some polishing. Paint your airbox to match your car. Put a saab rear hatch emblem on you oil fill tube cap (fits perfect). Umm besides that I'm not sure. I'll let you know if I think of anything.

I didn't know that....... I guess I was lucky.
