Your car looks great.. Love the wheels/tires.. the stance is perfect
Thanks! I've been considering leaving it stock height because i like the way it sits.

It's funny, because I was at the dealer recently and a couple of the techs were checking out my car and were trying to measure the wheel gap, like they thought i had lowered it.

Bro, it's so sad people always ask the same questions. They could just read.
He uses +40, but I'm not sure if it is the right offset. Sorry, I'm green to cars.

+40 is the perfect offset for this car with 245 tires. With 215, i would do +35 or maybe even +30.

Looks good, but I liked the TSW a bit more. Time for some lowering spring and you're set. :thumbsup:

Just a different look is all. The TSWs were just too wide... honestly, I favor the 8.5" setup I have now. I really like the bronze :D

And honestly, I probably won't lower the car. Our roads suck, and I can see myself scraping all the time even with lowering springs. I might upgrade the shocks at some point though, hopefully to Toyos or Bilsteins ;)

Latest Update 10/5/16:
Wow, I haven't updated this in forever! I have only done a couple things to the car since then. I added the rear diffuser, as well as a couple other small things like a screen protector and decals. The biggest change I've made however are the new wheels! They are 18x8.5 +35, and honestly now that I have had 18x8 and 18x9.5, I can say that 8.5 is the perfect wheel width for 245 tires. These wheels look awesome and at 17.4 pounds per wheel, my car is lighter and faster than ever!

The wheels are konig hypergrams, here are a couple pictures of how she looks now:

Just installed my clear side markers and door sill trim over the weekend, they look fantastic! This car is really coming together now.

Also, just ordered a set of OEM sport pedals from the Chinese market, so those as well as the catch can install will be coming in another week or so. Stay tuned!

Thrown in a few upgrades since the last update. Did a full LED conversion, so every bulb in the car is now LED. Also, added the Injen Cat-back Exhaust and a new OEM turbo badge on the back. More upgrades coming this month include ASEAN Non-illuminated door sill trim, ASEAN clear side markers, and Mishimoto catch can.

Haven't updated this thread in a while, so I thought I would. I got rid of the FK Ethos wheels and put on some TSW Nurburgrings, 18x9.5. Here are some new pics:
