A darker wheel goes best with the yellow calipers. I tend to gravitate towards darker wheels in general, but it makes the caliper pop way more and there is just something about a dark wheel with a loud caliper behind it.

Chris, can’t wait to see the ZE’s on your car. They’re such a nice wheel. Still gonna be sad to see the Enkei’s go, but it’s a helluva upgrade.
I wish I waited a few more months for the 18 STI to come out. Wasn't aware of the refresh they were doing at the time I got mine. I would love to have the updates they did. I even contemplated trading in the lapis for a 19 white STI just for the front bumper and brakes

Thanks man. I am really looking forward to finally getting them. I am sad to see the enkei's go, but they are much easier to get my hands on if I ever want to go back. The Volks are hard to get and I figure if I am going to let the enkei's go, it would have to be worth it. Haven't cut corners on this car, so I figure might as well go for it now before I get rid of it. Car should be ready to go at the start of summer!

But here she is for now!

Man, that is such a beautiful color when properly detailed. So glad I went with it when I ordered mine!

Awesome build! Wheel and coilover fitment is perfect. How do you like the fortune 500ís with the swift springs? I was looking into those myself

Thank you! I appreciate it. I absolutely love the fortune auto coilovers. I have had them on for over 15k now and have had 0 issues. Performing perfectly for my needs as a daily and a fun weekend car. I am running the 7k swift springs so definitely helps keep the car more drive-able for everyday. They tighten up really well in the turns and I honestly couldn't ask for anymore from them. I know when I finally get the rear sway bar setup done, it'll only make the setup better. I highly suggest them if you are looking into picking up a set.

Got antsy waiting for the volks so decided to pick up an intake by MA Performance. Some added power and sounds should be a fun addition to the car. Should be in next week so I will be sure to share my thoughts.

Map intake installed along with the stage 1+ tune. So far, I love it and the car hauls. Will post my thoughts once I get more seat time
