I haven't heard positive things about APEX wheels and their durability, either.

Congrats! I had a Topaz just about like that and liked it a lot, but when I got the M3 it kind of left it in the shadows...

really? i was in the first group buy for the arc-8's when they first came out like what....4 or 5 years ago at this point? street/hpde/autox and they still look the same and balance the same. Sure beats the hell out of d-force or kosei's

and who cares when they're as cheap as they are.

Other than that, that's a great looking ride.

Congrats! Looks like it's in great shape. The full leather seems to age much, much better than the alcantara seats.

Was the car originally ordered with the leather steering wheel vs. the alcantara?
