I like it (the last pic with the gold centers and brushed lip) and opt for the red center caps

THis is why Baskin Robbins makes 31 flavors I guess. To me, it looks like the car has big old white-wall tires.

I hear ya on that one....

Perhaps its the additional doors that make it not so appealing or maybe, not as sexy. Not that 4 doors is bad

i think thats exactly it, coupled with the fender flares... it doesnt looks sporty or aggressive enough. so possibly might be 'too much'.
