Pre-Coilover pic + Clears

Finally got around to snapping a few pictures after installing my clear tails.

It looks cleaner, so ill probably stick with this for a while.
Front Coil-overs are not in yet, been a little busy the last few weekends and the opening cruise is this sunday, so i probably won't get around to it until another 2weeks, May 22nd i'm heading to Vegas. Damn the summer is filling up fast, weekends are already tight.








The docs parking lot was close, I would have liked to get a better picture from inside the lot. But i had to settle for this slightly obscured shot.

Let me know if you plan to swing by during the day, i work 5mins from there. Took these shots on my lunch.

PS: Bring a bolt cutter so we can get into that parking lot for some better shots.

I can't believe I am saying this, but lately, silver is REALLY starting to grow on me. Previously, I HATED it.
Car looks clean!!!

Coil-overs installed.

I was forced to use a 12mm spacer with my wheels. (18x9 et 35) now I have an effective offset of et+23mm. Pictures to come, car hasn't been lowered, yet.


This is how close it is even with 12mm spacers.



yes i have the helper springs on, i wanted to try them first.
The car rides great on full soft, rides like stock! Just slightly firmer. I'm happy that it isnt overly harsh like bilstiens.
Will be testing out the firmness later.

Thanks guys, Tires are slightly undersized at 235/35/18. Only a 2% difference.

Moar pics after I lower the front more, i didn't lower it much because i thought i was going to have issues with the aggressive offset, but it looks like i will be fine.

Haven't had a chance to do much with the car or take good pictures.
These are the only pics I snapped so far since the install, since this picture I have lowered it about another 1/4'' and I'm happy with the height, i'm not planning to slam it.
