If you look at the reflection of the building in the first picture,that is what kind of stripe it needs on the front side going to the rear of the vehicle.

Different look with the larger wheels, I like that!

I suggest painting the side mirrors to body color. Don't know what Toyota was thinking with grey colored mirrors... Might as well call it iQ "CE" if they were going to do that...

I like the color scheme a lot. Hell I've had it on 4 different cars, black with red accents always looks good to me. But, I'm not feeling you wheel choice, there's just too much red in it. A black rim with a red lip looks better imo even if a lot of guys are running a similar set up. Also like others have said it'll look better lowered (for me maybe 2"). I lived in Utah for five years and I know what you're talkin about driving a lowered car in the the snow, but it really wasn't that bad. I mean I had a black CRX and was driving for the first 4years there with it. Of course I bought a 4runner the last year I was there, because my Honda got stuck in the drive way during winter lol.

I had my tC lowered too. I had to have the front bumper cover replaced three times. It has two spots that are incredibly weak and it splits. The first time it was a dark object lying on the freeway at night. The second was a steep driveway that had a huge pothole right at the top. You could not see it from the street. The third was a cat who committed suicide. It my car hadn't been lowered, the cat would have went under the car. Instead, its skull hit that spot in the bumper and did $1,900 damage. I will never lower a car again. And that did not include the fact that I had to keep having the clear bra installed with each new bumper cover.

The iQ could come down about an inch without too many issues but it is really not worth the money for a tiny drop.
