SSM Shoot- 19"RH, DRL LEDS, 5%/50% tint

I have lurked her the previous years and have made sporadic posts documenting my progress. I currently have over 205K on her, I bought her with 86K. I know, I know, everyone is going to say drop her but I still have my Cobra which is basically slammed and I live near speed bumps. Also, don't want to open up Pandora's box with new suspension issues. I have most original suspension components, knock on wood. Here are links to my previous threads:

DRL install: https://acurazine.com/forums/2g-tl-photograph-gallery-99/02-ssm-phillips-daylight-4-drl-installed-867471/


I just got the wheels, tinted the top of the tails with Laminex's Gunsmoke tint, tinted the DRLS, and bought an ebay trunk lip spoiler. Btw, if anyone wants to buy the bottom portion of my tail tint, I placed an Ad in the Black Market. Without further ado, the pics...

That looks great! Maybe if you dont wanna slam it, just put springs on! Its the least you can do with a nice tl.

More pics of tail lights please, they look pretty nice.

Trust me I did not want to lower my car at first because of speedbumps and other things. Just get lowering springs if you don't want to slam it. You'll eliminate the gap and get a better handling car

Awesome pictures! What kind of camera do you use?

I know you don't want to slam it but at least do some springs! Even if you cut out half of the wheel gap you have it would look MUCH better

Canon EOS T3i with a 50mm f/1.8

And as far as everyone saying a drop would make it look better... I agree. I have just learned my lesson on my Mustang after dropping 20K over the years that once you do one thing, everything else comes. I wanted to do H&R OE Sports but they don't make them and I wouldn't do anything else. Appreciate the constructive criticism. And remember- the lower portion taillight tint is for sale- anyone interested?

They do make h&r or sport springs. It's like 3/4" up front and 1/2" in the back

i spoke with H&R directly and they informed me they did not make the OE Sport springs (less of a drop) for 02-03 TLS. They only made the Sport springs which is too low of a drop for my taste. Any other slight drop alternatives?

These will fit I've seen them on other members cars. I'm running 02-03 tl springs on my 2000 because they all fit exactly the same. I do not know why they said it won't work

The fogs were done by CustomLightz about 4 years ago. I think they are actually Lexus ES300 projector fogs retrofitted in our housing with 4300K HID's running through them. Below those are Phillips Daylight 4 DRL's that automatically shut off when the heads and fogs turn on.
