2009 CJ Lancer VR Sedan

Post by Eu-GenixX » Tue 31 Aug, 2010 11:07 am

In the tradition of copying everyone else.. i thought i'd start up a little thread too... any mods will only really be cosmetic ones... but thought i'd throw this thread up to put ideas out there and get a little feedback a long the way..

So here she is... 2009 CJ Lancer VR Sedan... CVT 6 speed auto

The day i picked it up...

After the VRX spoiler was fitted..

only 2 sets of wheels have grabbed me a bit.... i'ts really hard finding something i like...

I've been searching for 18" version of my current wheels.. but i can't find them anywhere... heaps of VRX wheels.. but none of the 5 spoke phantoms that i want...

failing finding those rims... i've looked at the Advanti Flints.. and the other wheels is a Velocity 855A

trying to find Velocity resellers in Australia... only found 1 so far on the gold coast... here are a couple pics of the wheels mentioned above..

Advanti Flint's... what they would look like on the car..

and this is the Velocity wheel..

Well i thought i'd get a price on factory replacement tail lights and new factory rims... seeing how i was at the dealer getting my car serviced...

tail lights come in at around $1100-$1200 mark... so umm.... no to that unless i can source some second hand ones..

and 18" rim... tho not the one i want.. are about $1150 EACH!!

the search continues...

Fuckin noisy tho... i dunno if it's the tyres or if the change of offset is putting stress on other parts... so now i'm stressing.. heh

The front wheels look like they are outside the guard? ... was there a big offset change?
