I got rid of my Ultraleggeras to fund my BT, and have been riding on some 16" winter wheels for the past several months.I didnt have much $ to spend on wheels and needed something that could run a 235 tire..Got lucky and found these 18x8 "Samarkand"...This is with my FKs fully raised up, and love how these wheels look.

Good stuff, i also got a killer deal on my 2007 two years ago. It had 39k and was a company car, so it came with the CPO warranty until 50k + an extended warranty until 70 for 15,500 and was valued at 19 through kbb...But i have been very lucky with this car since all the parts that have been known to fail were upgraded before the purchase. Enjoy your new car!

Although I dislike black wheels, it looks great. Specs?

Thumbs down COLOUR CONFUSION

I'm seeing a mix of white and black side-skirts and rear-lower-bumper-covers. And discussions about painting the black ones to white.

Can someone explain why some cars have black skirts, and some (like mine) have white?
Different year, trim, # of doors, what???

Stock base side-skirts are textured black, votex and TB side skirts and bumpers come from the factory painted. Yours probably had one of these options installed

this.

judging by your picture, it looks like the previous owner had the stock sideskirts painted to match the car. on a side note, be sure to check out the regional section. we have a great local MKV community in the vancouver area.
