About myself, well been working as an auto tech for over 25 years now.
1997 to 2004 i lived in Dallas, TX and worked as a tech for Chrysler, Ford and a small high performance shop, currently i'm living in my home town (Luleĺ, Sweden) and running a one man transmisson shop.

Been lurking here for a while and thought it's time to introduce myself

Take care and be safe out there, ok.

No, no, no.

They look very similar to the wheels I have. I was just wondering if maybe another company picked up the design.

Are they custom drilled, or do they come in 5x108?

This is whats been done, paint way.

Previous owner have had the left rear door and rear fender repainted, do not match the front left door :(:(

I have had the lokal dealer repaint the front fascia (bumper) and hood, but those match the front fenders perfect

I figured as much. But if I wasn't such an idiot, I am sure I could have looked at the page you linked to and saw where it says 5x108...

Installed oilpressure gauge for the transmission so i can monitor the pressure when i start playing with the TCM controlls



But i have to find a different feed location, the test pressure port isen't good enough. The valvebody have a valve that close the feed at certain speed and rpms so the gauge drops to 0 a lot :(
