    Oh, maybe they are two different models. I'm around the Lotus dealership around town though quite a bit (I'm in the car business currently - photography) and I have never seen a coupe version, only the convertable elises. So they may be special order or they dont' carry them in the states.

    That TVR looks like an insect - very ugly. As for British cars I prefer the Range Rover :D

    any old muscle car is nice.. my dad had a 7.5l custom 69 mustang.. sold it before i got to see it.. would have been worth a fortune now =<

    i modify all my cars..but all these cars youre mentioning are too "commonly" liked.. checkout the Lotus Carlton ;) my dad has a replica one.. pretty amazing car for its time.. was the fastest production saloon in the world till the release of the 4-door bentley continental gt (flying spur i think its nicknamed).. not bad.. a 20ish year record :p

    video of the car on youtube :)

    edit: just read up.. the guy with the 2002 mustang should sell it and get a real mustang ;)

    Those rims are way OTT for your Calibra.

    They don't suit the design of the car at all. It looks like you took the wheels off something at a Max Power event and stuck them on your Vauxhall. They look completely out of place.

    I park next to a Calibra nearly every day and the standard rims look fine imo.

    But hey, it's your car. You can do what you like with it. :)

    Latest Lotus's and TVR's look like they were desinged by 14-year olds. Also intended for them.

    Such lack of inspiration...

    They weren't the ones I was thinking of, guess different models have different wheels (am not up on Calibras) but they fit the car all the same. When going for rims you wanna choose something that blends in, subtle, not something that sticks out like a sore thumb. Anyway like I said upto you.

    If you swapped out your front/rear bumpers, skirts, for aftermarket alternatives, added front and rear splitters, dropped the car on it's ass, colour coded your bump strips, door handles, got the car delocked and debadged, the rims would fit your car better since you'd be going for the whole hardcore modified chavvy look. :p

    I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one, because what looks good is obviously subjective.

    Agreed. I have 17'' on my car. The larger wheels also supposedly allow the car to handle better in the snow. Based on my experience, I'd say that's true.

    I'm still driving my 05 Civic. I love it too. I remember owning some Chav ricer who was driving this old car. At the intersection, four lane road merging into a two lane. Thought he could get in front of me. He drove up my trunk the rest of the way. :D
