Honestly, I think the car looks great, even with the oversize tires and white rims! I would lose the big exhaust exit though cause it's too ricey, and it makes you cop bait. The stickers look fine to me but they make you cop bait too. All and all though not a bad looking car for a sedan!

That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! How can a larger than stock exhaust tip be enough to get you pulled over?

I'm assuming that the SHO must go on. At least the wheels.

It's funny, in my s70 ( which admittedly was loud) I had a rather shiny exhaust tip and I got pulled over left and right. On the 740 which is just as loud I have a flat black "stealthy" dual tip and have never been pulled over for it.
