Yeah it doesn't look right with the base 9-3bumper on there. As For the wheels if you want a set of stock viggen wheel I'll trade you and some cash? Just a thought though welcome to the link. Plans for mods?

Welcome!

Where are you? From the lack of front plates, I'm guessing Alberta or Quebec

Edit: Got my answer from above post! Welcome!

at some point ill definatly be having JZW tune my car!
hes already tuned my friends 98 9000 CSE to stage3 he loves it!

the thread above i believe is pretty useless. talk to each tuner and make the choice for your self...

id consider pricing too. the CSE i mentioned earlier is faster then my bros 94 stage4 aero, for 2/5s of the price!

is the jzw tune more aggressive? also a 98 cse, is basically an aero, td04,ect.. just no aero kit/other goodies

edit- i also reccomend jzw, ive only heard good things baout his tunes, and for the price it cant be beat

For tuning, find someone nearby that you can have dyno and road tune the car properly. Or read up and do it yourself.
