    I hear you but I have always liked the look of the C5 Y2K wheels. The great thing about the stock C5 package is that with the stock run flat tires, I do not need to carry around the spare tire and that allows me to hide my Nitrous bottle in that area.

    Took a total of 30 minutes. These are Auto Zone Duralast brake pads and I wanted to remove the "Duralast" label from them. Simply used Brasso by hand.
