    Have you planned out any mods yet?

    In my case, the GT came with 18s standard so it's just a case of swapping the wheels but keeping the tires. I don't really plan to mod since i was able to spec the car the way i wanted it anyway. LED headlights and so forth. I went from a 2011 Hyunday elantra touring with over 355000km on the clock to this. To put it lightly the change is rather noticeable lol

    Those are great wheels too, i just went for the M008s because the little bit of polished accents to them will go with the small amount of chrome on my car and make the black stand out i think. At least that's my theory and what i hope because i haven't seen the effect in real life yet

    nowhere near. Most of that mileage was from when i lived in new brunswick up to about 4 years ago. When i moved here i had about 280000km on it and put the rest in the 4 years since. So no it will not be getting that sort of mileage that quickly

    Looks good, now you just need to swap out the dealer plate covers for TM3 plate covers.

    I ended up getting there too late to pick up the plate covers, will be going again saturday morning to get them though because i can't make it to the dealership after work early enough. I hate dealer coverplates, but have them on until i get the TM3 ones
