So whats the deal with the dark tinted head lights? I noticed now that all I have are chrome on the lot?

I like the "black chrome" look.

Also...whats the deal with the 2.0t guys adjusting the waste gate? I got a car in the shop today that has obviously been tweaked. I heard of a couple people destroying their turbos...


also...any of you guys want to powder coat your wheels? I offer the service locally...but cant hurt to offer it up to dealers.

I do lighting on the side....HID kits, LED kits...along with custom painting & powder coating. I really want to get my hands on a coupe...wife is okay with it, but cannot make the payments right now.

The cars equipped with HID headlights are the only ones with the "dark chrome" reflector housings. The regular halogen projector beam headlight housings are bright chrome.

Sorry, I'm a complete idiot when it comes to turbos. It's something I'm going to have to learn as we get further into this.

I thought about powdercoating my wheels to a dark/gunmetal colored gray close to the color of my car. Problem is the mounting/dismounting of 19" tires is not something our tire machine is capable of. I don't want to have to pay someone to dismount/mount/balance as well as the cost for the powdercoating. Not to mention being without a vehicle for a day or two.

There is a couple threads covering this, but in essence the HIDs have the black chrome & the projection lamps have the chrome. So, if you want black chrome, you either got to get a Track or 3.8 GT.

People are adjusting the wastegates to try to get a little more pressure out of the turbo w/o spending a bunch of money. I've yet to hear of anyone destroying their turbo though.

I have a local powder coating shop that just ordered the pearl dark dray to do my BMW 540i wheels within the next week or so. They are really good, but I would not powder coat the factory 19" Hyundai wheels, because they just look way too good factory to mess up. Now if I got the factory 18" wheels I might do them different.

WTF.....Muhahaha, looks like you posted yours B4 mine DD.

I like the factory finish of the 19's, but it's so fragile... I have about 4 or 5 rock chips on each rear wheel, and keeping them touched up is becoming a PITA. Powdercoating would be much more durable.

No shit, that sucks.

I'm taking mine off the day I get it & storing them, since I'll have my F14s waiting on the car. I'll just break the wheels down since I know someone that owns a tire store that can handle big wheels & won't charge me anything. I will sell the tires & store the wheels in the boxes my F14s come in.
