These are the straight IB15's not the "car version" that they were coming out with right?

Glad to see you like them, I see 4 in my future this year for the "rig in the shop revamp" and For some reason I'm rather supportive of AE, I like what they are doing and their ideas.

As for the appearance being a bit stark... nah, not in my eyes, I think they are beautiful!
