Without knowing size and seeing as you want to not break the bank, I'd say start your search on Tire Rack. They carry a bunch of good quality wheels across a pretty wide spectrum of prices. Some of...

It's really just a matter of personal preference. I will say though, if you're going to get bigger wheels, I'd highly recommend lowering the car as well. Nothing takes away from the look of a nice...

If you're asking whether you can just use the H&R Sports rather than the OE Sports, the answer is yes and no. The Sport springs have an even higher spring rate than the OE Sports and consequently...

Go with a set of H&R OE Sport springs. They should lower the car about an inch to an inch and a quarter, and you can use the factory shocks. With some care and a little knuckle busting, you can...

I'm now using a Rupes Bigfoot LHR15ES in place of the Porter Cable 7424XP. Great tool, it runs much smoother than the Porter Cable and works A LOT faster.

You're sort of stuck here. I'd recommend taking it to a body shop and getting the area touched up and blended professionally. It's really tough to get touch up paint to come out to a spot on color...
