Imho, looks a bit funky.. it has dark wheels, light 2nd tone of silver, then darker 1st tone of blue. But that's just me.

Intake painting looks sweet! Looks pretty stock too
Yeah, that's what I thought too

Hey guys, quick question. Would this http://meganracing.com/products/prod...d=550&catid=35

Fit on a 2010 2.5i? I think it should, but before I spend the money on it I would just like a second opinion.

Pointless to get with minimal performance gain. More cosmetic then anything.

Front end links you probably won't really feel either. Save for a front bar/end links. Otherwise if you don't have a rear swaybar.. Get one!

thanks a lot. actually sanded them down to 400 and sprayed them gloss rustoleom hardhat enamel black. much easier to match a chip than with plastidip. and as some of you will learn, flat black is a lot harder to keep clean than gloss black, and gloss black ends up looking flat after a few weeks without a cleaning.

I have a quick question, my stock tires on 2010 2.5i are 205/55r-16, I have my old Summer and Winter tires that have 1 season on each of them from my '03 Camry which are 215/60r16. Would they fit on the 2.5i? or would I be better off selling them and getting a new set?

They'll fit. They'll be a little tall and might throw off your speedometer. But you should be fine.

What about a dark grey metallic? It's got some darker blacks to it while having a together color. Might look weird still but better than a black, imo. Grey seems too stock looking and not worth spending time for since getting wheels painted even with plastidip takes a good chunk of your day

Decided to make a new hatch carpet since I HATE the rubber one the car came with. I took a trip to Lowes and headed to the carpet section and had them cut me a 5' long piece of the charcoal runner they had in a 75foot roll, at $2.72 a foot it cost me under $15.

I think it came out pretty good.

Yeah... I'm not a fan of them, but it sets the car apart from the 2.5i's, I was thinking about painting them dark gray like the bumpers.
