I like it a lot better, and she's happy. She wanted a Bimmer, and these wheels look similar to a BMW style so it's a compromise. haha

Haha. Does it compare to an M3 the way the Beretta was once compared? :D

I like the plastidip treatment. The color is very nice too. ...Almost makes me want one for a daily.

I saw em on ebay. Not a fan. There are some pretty sweet smoked LED tail lights that are not worth $500 though. And some of the LED fogs are cool.

Would the European or Austrailian built Cruze lights work?

What would be the point? They look the same. These are the only ones on ebay I like...but I can tint her stock tails with vinyl for less than 1/10 the price. And it might even look better than the smoked lenses with chrome housings.

Took it to TN a few weeks back and got 44mpg for the whole trip. Just took it on a road trip to Pittsburgh for work and only got 41mpg. WTF? Still made a killing on the mileage reimbursement though! haha Car is already at 8k mi.

Agreed. That's why I don't run them. NC is a front plate state too isn't it?

NC is not a two plate state. And, I won't run one if they become a 2 plate state. My tint is illegal, and I've only been pulled over once in the 8+ years I've been down here... I'll take my chances.
