I really like the way the GramLights look as well but I think the fact of having more tire on them is what's helping me like them even more lol!

Yeah, I like the look of a beefy tire lol.

+1 on beefy tires. when you give those tires some tire shine, it'll look even much better!

I know! I have my own DSLR now so I can do my own shoots at anytime anywhere!! I can't wait either! Bad part is I am 99% sure I have to replace 2 of the tires which I don't want to do so I'm unsure at this time on how long it will be until they will be on the car! :(

Keeping them as extra set of wheels and if anything ever comes up where I really need money for whatever reason then I have them as well. Thinking of fitting them on the wife's Ralliart also! I just need to pick up some suspension for her car! I want suspension and a cutback exhaust for hers! Then with the Battles she would be golden!!! :D

Really it's just the matter of if we want to spend the money for it. We have it if we want to. I actually just posted on a FB page Ralliart Revolution asking if anyone has coils or exhaust for sale so we'll see what happens and if we find a good deal then she will have it!!

EXACTLY lmao. There is a car meet Saturday night so I'm really wanting to put them on for that. I was also contemplating selling them and the Battles right now at this moment and getting some Avant Garde wheels and having them as a sponsor. Just have decide if I want to go that route making that kind of commitment. Such tough decisions! Also was looking around at buying the wife a cutback exhaust for her Ralliart along with coils and doing the same on her car picking up another set of Avant Garde wheels for her as well.

Yeah those are nice! Idk if I'm into the mesh style wheels as much though. They look sick when done right with the right car but they just aren't my style. Idk what style I would choose but I don't think I will end up going through with that. I will probably just be buying some new tires soon and mounting the GramLights.

Well with the height I have it set at currently for the Battles with the smaller tires they don't fit lol. I mean they do but the rear fenders were sitting on the tire but I was still able to move the car back and forward a foot or so without rubbing so bad, it didn't leave marks on the tires. The front is perfect, no adjustments needed. The rear I do have to raise about 1/2" to avoid rubbing unless I was to purchase the Megan Rear adjustable camber arms but I'm not planning on that. Idk when exactly I will get to putting them on. I have to purchase new tires for them and then the time it will take to hopefully make the adjustments needed on the coils as long as they aren't seized. Then I also will go back in after all that for a new alignment just to ensure everything is in check!! A lot needed to get them on. I have the money for it all it's just if I want to spend it right now and use the time to do it all.

Alright so as many people have already seen via Facebook and Instagram, I am on the path currently to swap all parts off of my Ralliart sportback and putting them onto the Blue Ralliart Sedan I also own. All the stock parts from the sedan will be swapped onto the Sportback in preperation of selling/trading my beloved Ralliart Sportback. There are many reason as to why I am making the move of selling/trading the Sportback such as, the Sportback is 100% paid for and being sold/traded in will give me an awesome amount of money as the down payment towards my next purchase. The Sedan is still bank owned and I am making payments still and currently what I still owe on that car is just barely under the actual value of the car so it would not give me any money to use towards my next purchase to help keep payments lower. Also the Sportback has been absolutely perfect mechanically so far since I bought it with 13k miles and now it's sitting at 61,8** and around 40,000 of those miles the car has had performance modifications so with that said I'm afraid of what kind of wear the transmission may have had over all those miles, now understand I do not beat on either of my Ralliarts but I do have fun in them and do the occasional WOT pulls and such just feeling the boost and little power she does have. So I'm thinking it may be safer to go ahead while she's still running strong to get rid of her and avoid the potential risk of the transmission giving out and then being stuck with a car I cannot afford a new transmission for. Now the Sedan is also right at around 62,*** miles but every single one of those miles has been completely 100% unmodified and not driven hard practically ever and has a very good maintenance history so I feel that if I go ahead and throw on all the modifications I have now on the Sportback onto it that it will still be a car I can rely on for several more years with no worries, that's my thought but who knows anything can happen. Another reason for getting out of having two Ralliarts is I have 2 children and my wife and a dog with the potential of another dog and it is time to upgrade to a larger vehicle, specifically a SUV. I already have the said SUV planned to purchase and am currently waiting on it to be built by Land Rover and arrive in Hawaii. That's some of the many reasons I have for considering this change in my life right now. I always said I would NEVER sell or get rid of my Ralliart Sportback but you know sometimes you have to make choices in life and let go of the things you love in life to move onto bigger and better things. It's extremely tough for me to actually do it and I know I will seriously miss this car and at least I will still have a Ralliart that does have a few better features in it (Recaros) to stil use as my fun AWD boosted "show" car and the paint and overall condition of my blue Ralliart sedan even being a year older is in a lot better shape than my Ralliart Sportback. So I may very soon be starting a very very busy weekend on swapping parts from the two cars in preperation for the new purchase! I'm actually very excited for this SUV and can't wait to see and drive it when it arrives! Always remembered, Never forgotten! The one and only Ralliart Sportback in all of Hawaii will always live on as a memory! We've been through a LOT together that car and I so it has a lot of sentimental value so if and when that day comes it truly will be a tough bitter sweet day for me. Thank you all on here and Facebook and on Instagram for all the support on the progress of this car you guys all were the inspiration for me to make it what it became and keeping it Simple and clean! Without the help of this forum and the people on my Facebook I would have had such a hard time progressing in the right direction with this car! I really truly appreciate all the love for it and the help I got over the years from everyone! I'll kepp you all posted on what is happening next with it up until it is gone if that really does happen as planned.

Yeah they are you're right. I've never thought of myself as an OG in the Lancer community but I guess I am right? Lol. I know some people may think this is an April fools joke but it's not, I am serious with this it just so happens that I'm posting this at the same time lol. Thanks for the best wishes they are really appreciated and the Sportback will be living on through my blue Ralliart Sedan. I'm going to sell the battles to buy new tires for the Gram Lights and those will be fitted onto the Sedan with all the other UR parts.

So I know in the post above I was saying about this car going bye bye and that still is a possibility but I think I also said above that nothing is 100% certain yet so with that said I finally got around to adjusting my coils and fit the Gram Lights on the car! I am really happy with the outcome and think they really look awesome on the Sportback! Even with having the bigger tires and having to raise the stance of the car! They look great! Have a look for yourself and give me some feed back on what you all think of the new look and how you think they are compared to the Battles that everyone is in love with on my car! Speaking of the Battles, all this happened thanks to having a flat tire happen on Thursday leaving me stranded for a couple hours and decided well I can't run them anymore so let's fit the Gram Lights! The Battles will likely be going up for sale shortly! Now on with the pics!! Enjoy! :D

Holy! I just now got around to reading this. Sad to see that the Sportback might go, but it's definitely been a hell of a ride! ;) I really like the Gram Lights better than the Battles :) Good luck with whatever you decide to do!!

Thanks!! Well I made an impulse buy yesterday on a really good deal and purchased a Suzuki GSX-R750 so now it seems the car will be staying and be getting put into the garage to sit and collect dust. I will be riding the bike as a daily now for everything as much as I can to save from spending $30 on gas 1-2 times a week on my car now to spending like $8 a week on gas for the bike and to save mileage on the car! Here's some pics of it!
