Yep nice looking sedan - I mean seriously, what more do you really have to do anyway?? Lots of modding for power going on it seems but is the car really that lacking in the power department I wonder??

The Corrado.. wow it's been a long time since I've seen one of those - didn't recognize what it was at first! Looks good! What kind of racing are you going to be doing in it? What kind of innards is it made up of?

Right, its the family mobile so it can't get modded for power too much.. Spt exhaust would be nice.

At the moment, we just use the corrado only for time trialing.. No race licenses yet.. The engine is stock.. But a lot is going on with the car.. I'll post the link to the build thread.

What is the color of the wheels as rota calls it? I am probably going to be getting some similar wheels (though in 17"), the rota GR-A's (Tarmac 2's) in the same color. I'm still amazed at what the wheels and that minor drop did to the overall look of the car. Had I seen these pictures earlier I might have rethought starting to add the entire aero kit from the premium package. Just ordered the front lip a few days ago.

The only disappointment I have is that the wheels look pretty small :-/ I believe the offset is 48 and the color is charcoal gray.. Lighter than gunmetal and they're a satin finish.

I think the wheels look great. Definitely not too small. I think perhaps the reason they look smaller is due to the smaller sidewall of the tire.

Still, it looks great. I bet it looks better in person too. I have noticed that our beloved 08's aren't very photogenic, lol. :D
