Default Black iQ with 18's..

Got my iQ a l'il over a week ago and now have the tint and wheels done. Thinking of others odds and ends as well.

What do you all think of it so far?

"I dont like it" r pointless!
It's not constructive criticism just a negative reply

I'm not a fan of that combination, but here's what you need to do to finish the look:

1. Drop the iQ (normally you want a high iQ, but this time, a lower iQ is more attractive lol)

2. Do SUBTLE pin striping on the faux grille in your bumper. I think if you use a thin red border around the leftmost and rightmost faux vents in your front bumper, it'll really set it off. Just don't do any other pin striping or else it becomes way too ostentatious.


You've got a lot of red going on for the wheels, so don't bother painting the calipers red.

Not a fan of the wheel color choice and it definitely needs a drop with wheels that size.

Congratulations on your new iQ. Black and red is always a good color combination.

What other plans do you have for the iQ?

I honestly think this car would look better with 16's or 17's And secondly a significant drop.

also, on the lowering part, you all should try driving a lowered car in Utah... not exactly a fun event for a daily commuter car

I'm beginning to think roads in this entire country suck because that seems to be everybody's reason for not going lower. I have crap roads too and I drove my tC lowered and a fairly slammed rx7 around town for awhile..lol just do it!

^ this. I've had two inches of ground clearance for a good while now and the roads here suck. At first it's a hassle learning to avoid certain things but it's worth it when you see how good the car looks.

What's funny is my WRX is on stock suspension but I still drive it like I am lowered lol it just became such a huge habit to angle into drive ways and over speed bumps and stuff that I do it subconciously now.

ive driven lowered cars before. im not debating wether it would look good or not, just saying that when you add road dips and what not with snow, it makes driving a lil irritating.

Looks good with the 18's you just need to drop it a little to close up the wheels gap. Don't do no type of pinstriping to anything you have enough red with the wheels. Anything would look dumb as for smaller rims. It'll look retarded the wheel wells are to big for smaller wheels on the iQ. Wait for a lip kit it'll sweet with one.

I disagree. The SUBTLE pinstriping on the front faux vents (only the leftmost and rightmost ones) would complete the look, or else this is just another car with wheels that have color in them.

For my xB, I have black wheels with subtle pinstriping and also added slight yellow to the front and rear of my car: looks awesome that way.
