Mine is about the same in the front after the Dinan lowering. I'm actually satisfied cause it doesn't bottom out over any speed bumps

I can't say I'm loving the blue interior lights. But the car is clean. So if you like the lights, that's all that matters.

I may have mentioned this before, but you need bigger brakes to go with those wheels I forgot how much smaller the regular 5'er brakes are than the M ones (324mm vs 345mm).

Just for reference:



What's another item to add to the project list eh? LOL

First off throw the thread title out the window
It's been a while since my last post as I have been busy turning my entry level sound components( in the above posts) into something a bit better. I love car audio and been playing with it for years. I spent the last few month buying/selling/trading/making contacts/playing with car audio equipment(also school and full time job....im not a bum lol). MY initial investment of about $500 has been transformed into the following...I kid you not

GOING IN THE CAR:
JL 1000/1v2 amp NEW
JL 300/4v2 amp NEW
JL 13W7 subwoofer NEW
JL C3-525 component speakers (2 sets) NEW
Kenwood DDX719 double din DVD NEW
Kinetik HC800
55sq/ft sound deadening NEW

FOR SALE:
Pioneer TS-D1720C 6.5" components $100 NEW
JL 12W6v2 subwoofer (2) $250each NEW
JL 10W7 w H.O.box $250
Alpine PDX1.1000 $240
JL 250/1 - $120
Rockford Fosgate P2002 $80
Kicker Sum8 8channel factory integration processor $120

and $700 cash (-500$ initial invesment so $200profit to play with)

and yes i know there is alot out there better than JL like DD RE DC Sundown etc but i get amazing deals on JL equipment and i know if i want to sell in a few yrs I will easily make money or atleast break even (sold a lot of jl amps and sub in the last few months)

also in the middle of a custom enclosure and amp rack build
