Question How can I make this setup look better ?

I just got my car back from the shop and got a new set of rims. MB wheels bronze weapons...

Now, I also clearned my headlights, so now the setup looks a little weird. Just because the lights are so white and everthing is dark:



I was thinking of getting the headlights smoked, but I don't think that would be good as far as driving at night or passing inspection or getting tickets.

So now I'm trying to figure out how to make everything match...

any ideas?

Yeah, I like the look- I think smoked headlights will make everything too dark. Monochrome = blah

I agree... some wider tires would probably help. And I know this is largely a matter of personal choice, but I don't think the clear lenses make a difference. I just think the car needs a wing to balance the rear end with the front. I think the front just looks heavy on a WRX when you have the wider fenders and then add the larger hood scoop without something on the back to offset it a little.

I had them on for a while before I swapped wheels and took them off. Suprisingly, there is still plenty of thread to catch on each bolt...try it...and it definatly helps widen the back stance
