Not really liking the wheels or "street glow" but your car is nice overall. Enjoy the forums.

Badass car man! The white streetglow has always been something ive liked. Wheels go good with the car's color. Enjoy your stay here :)

Hey sleepr! Lol long time no see. ;) yeah i just installed them about a week ago.. Amd just got the stud i broke in the head replaced. They are good, just makin sure bout exhaust leaks and all.. I like em but all the paint chipped off on the first drive. So they arent black anymore lol. But cant complain.. And didnt get to drive her cause it rained right when i finished replacing the stud today. :( tomorrow ill pull her out though haha.

As for the underglow... I like the white, it doesnt look **** in my opinion. Just depends how much lighting you put on the car. Then it looks ****. Its LED and looks good so whatever. Haha. Some people like em some dont.

Lowering.. Yes it will come.. Plan on doing kyb gr2 struts and eibach lowering springs.

Thanks everyone for the comments on my car! I love my alero to much, its clean 24/7 and doesnt come out in the rain 99% of the time hahaha
