Yup! Got them done in January. They honestly change the look of the car so much. Even the limited/STi headlights look way better than the regular base/premium trim headlights with all the chrome.

That's a great looking Ascent. How does it drive? Does it feel like a turbocharged sporty car, or does it feel more like a family SUV?

Thanks! Definitely more like a family car although it gets up and goes surprisingly well. Cabin is quiet and ride is soft and comfortable. Iíve got some new sway bar bushings to try to see if I can sharpen up the handling a little bit. If not, I may check out a custom suspension shop and see if they can work a little magic. My wife came from an X5 50i so she would like some sharper handling if we can find a way to make it happen. Sheís willing to give up some of the comfort for a little better handling so weíll see how it goes.

I wasn't a fan of them either until I saw them on a sliver VA.

Yeah, Iím a mess when it comes to wheels. Iím back into some ZE40ís so hopefully I can keep from getting bored for a while. At least Iíve stuck with my Cobb exhaust the whole time so at least I have that going for myself.

You couldnít return it or anything? That sounds like an awful experience.

On a good note, ZE40ís are on.
