      was pulling out of my friends driveway and it made the back tire tuck like that haha I was so happy to see it low that I had to take pics. (cell phone)

      I know, lame...but I cant help it!

      I couldn't have gotten any better with the fitment on these wheels. So awesome. Still need to trim that particular fender liner.

      Cant wait for coils!!!! Anyone have suggestions on what springrate I should use? I don't mind a harsh ride at all as long as handling is good.

      Also, I am definitely a believer in those plugs now. It just sorta hit me how much better the car runs now. W000t!!!! Still gotta figure out issues, but its a little light in this damn car's situation haha.

      Well the 4000 i posted was already sold, but at least it was sold to a guy on the tex. So right now im trying to get ahold of the guy of the first car i posted.....so hopefully at the end of the day, I should have a 5000 CS

      Edit:

      I talked to the guy...and he took down the sale...its having a fuel problem...he says the fuel pump starts to make a weird noise when its started, sputters then dies...any ideas? oh and sorry for going way off topic...

      @loxrider,

      Damn man..that thing is going to look mint when you lower it....those are a good fit. so they are going to clear the fender fine then?

      I really dig the wheels...very suiting for your car...what are they...actual Porsche wheel? what offset.?

      I agree with the above mentioned spring rates...should do you good.

      Thanks man, I appreciate the kind words.

      They clear the actual fender just fine when the car hits on a bump or is weighed down, etc...it actually tucks the tire and wheel with a few centimeters to spare.

      It does rub sometimes however. I'm pretty sure its just on the liner though. I took one out about a month ago to trim it a bit and it reduced the rubbing. I will pull them out again now that they've had more time on them for me to see where it really rubs and I'll trim them again. I'm hoping to not have to take them all the way out.

      They are a replica Porsche wheel, 18x10 in back and 8.5 (or 8...not sure) in the front. Offsets are 55 for the rear and 50 for the front.

      The fronts fit with absolutely no issues. The lips of the wheels line up almost exactly with the fender.

      The adapters I got are 32mm in the rear and 26mm in the front.

      I definitely cant wait to get it low, but getting the standalone straightened out first is my priority. We came upon some really good info about it this weekend, so I'm hoping to have it sorted sometime this week. Anyway, here are some pics from this weekend

      she's been running slightly fat lol

      Impulse buy... An 1985 audi 5000 turbo diesel. The idea is that I will pull the engine and drop it in my 1987 audi 5000s quattro.

      also parting stuff if any one needs anything from this junk

      as kinda an inside joke. Even on stock suspension when I get too many friends in my car it will rub, so I might do a custom version with t44 in mind (I dont mean for that to be offensive to anyone...its just a lighthearted joke)

      Anyway, maybe I'll make another along these lines

      (aka low and wide or down n out)

      I'll keep it updated if I do indeed get it in sticker form in case others want it. I have already started drawing it up.
