Beautiful ride! Good to see an LTZ with the stock wheels...to my eyes they look better than the more expensive 18'-19'ers. 8)

Thanks everyone. Right now my wife and I live in an apartment complex. Were planning to buy a house in the next year.

I really didnt spend much effort on the wheels as this is my wifes car. I was/am very tempted to upgrade the brakes to corvette twin piston calipers but they wont fit under these wheels. Im pretty sure she will veto any modifications I want to make to it (unless it increases MPG).

The new Nox is the first vehicle is recent memory where "not doing anything with the wheels" is not a bad thing aesthetically. I like the size effect of the 18"-19" wheels, but not the styles themselves. If the stock wheel was offered in the 18" I would have gone for that..

Nice ride!

I wasn't even aware that you could have the standard 17" wheels on the LTZ, but now I am. Was this the case for 2010 as well?

I'm curious to why some nox owners want HID lights. I had a 2001 Eclipse GT and in
comparison to that my Nox lights are a lot brighter. I find driving at night easier.
Before I took ownership of the car I read through the HID thread and thought, maybe.
But now that I have the vehicle I don't really think its necessary. jmho

Are the lamps different on the various trims? I didn't notice any headlamp differences

The LTZ model uses a projector lense which focuses the light better, while the other models use reflector optics which are not as "accurate" light dispersion. IMHO

As RIT333 stated they LTZ has projectors.

I wanted HIDs because I wanted them. They are brighter and are the latest technology. I find it lame that the vehicle comes with projectors but not HIDs. I look at HID as similar to regular tv versus HD tv. you think the old way is great and works well until you see the new technology, then its hard to go back.

That all being said, i pulled out the HIDs and I hope the seller will take them back. I paid $175 per set (2 sets) and one ballast went out after 30 mins and second one went out after a day. They are crap for quality. I wish I had gone with the sponsor, he sounds to have quality products but my wife doesnt want me to mess with her new car now for a while.

Im also bothered about the DRLs. Id rather make the amber lights be the DRLs but theres wires to move, its all internal to the BCM, so I say screw it.
