lol, isnt that the truth? my G8 GT had gorgeous paint compared to the subie, no worries though. paint is hit or miss. my acura TL-S and 06 Si looked terrible with peel.

finished product, no tire dressing and i didnt detail the exhaust tips, too tired.

I don't think Grids look that bad. Most people just seem to hate them because a lot of people have them. IMO, that's the only thing dumber than liking something because a lot of other people do.

They're heavier than the Grids too. Grids are quoted at 23lbs for 18x9.5" and the XT7's are over 25lbs. I found photos from RAVSPEC that show 28lbs and LSDMotorsports lists them at 25lbs.

They do look very nice though.

I don't like grids because I think the concave looks weird(especially on our cars) and I just find rota paint to be really terrible looking. I didn't realize xt7s were that heavy though...makes me like them a lot less

Do you have to run spacers with Grids to clear brembos?

Grids are downright gorgeous on the right car. I'll probably end up with hyper black grids, I like the concave. For some reason, the darker the car the more I like grids. Then again I am partial to darker colors so it may not be the wheels.
