After my 788 wheels powder coated black . . . the EC-7 is my favorite wheel seen on the M2C. Great choice my friend.

Thanks. I will be mounting them soon with tires and Vorschlag camber plates. Will also install stud conversion and then detail the car for some pro pics. Please hold......

I have a few different car projects going on plus a brand new home. I'm biting off more than I can chew, but such is life. This plus my job in healthcare keeps me busy.

I'm looking forward to seeing your new car.

What color is your car? my friend bought race silver for his AW and I have the anthracite for SO. You can't go wrong with either color. I've seen them in person and both are lighter in shade than on the internet pics.
My car is AW. I'm leaning to the race silver wheels, but anthracite probably match the dark accents on my car better, and they likely look better dirty.

I really like the M763 wheels but don't care for the colors offered, and don't want to bother with getting them panted. Hopefully Ill make up my mind and place an order tomorrow.

Something to note. Darker wheels don't look as good on pics than lighter color wheels. The darker wheels do make the dirt and dust longer than lighter color wheels, particularly initial brake dust. Alpine white need a contrasting wheel in my opinion. I see the tough decision you have. good luck.

on AW? Definitely anthracite for contrast. Just picked up a lightly-used set myself locally

Local buddy of mine has them in race silver for his AW. You should post a pic of the mounted wheels when you have chance. Congrats - those are nice wheels for sure. Have you driven on the Toyos yet? If so, initial impressions?

M Performance Mats

Quality mats with rubber backing. Top surface is also very durable. I believe they look better than just rubber all season mats. Fitment is exact and they come with extra set of velcro pads for installation. Gives the interior a nice contrast.

The R888s are actually on there from the chap I purchased them from - he used them for track wheels for a few sessions before ordering some fancy 3-pc wheels for that. He left the tires on, but they're basically corded. I have a 265/30+295/30 set of PS4s on order from Costco, waiting for those to come in. I'll post some pics once I get them on for sure

I purchased a few additional parts on Cyber Monday sales and what not. So far, I've received the some transmission mounts from Rogue Engineering. I'm going to install these as another step closer to the shift feel. Will take some install pics and provide a brief review soon. Came nicely packaged with instructions.
