    Thread: New shoes and the Pacific Coast Highway

    1. 09-03-2008 09:13 PM #1
      New shoes and the Pacific Coast Highway

      BBS CK Anthracite > 18x8
      BF Goodrich Super Sport A/S > 225/40-18
      Eibach Pro-Kit + Koni FSD













      I love how my dub looks, the photos really don't do it justice. I wish it was an inch lower, but I'm not swapping the suspension again.

      or ?

      Now what it needs are some color-matched side-markers. Looks great. The drop is perfect, in my opinion.

      Color matched side markers are a great idea. I was thinking of going back to the stock orange ones as the ECS Tuning ones are turning from white to yellow. Color matched would definitely complete the grey look of my car. I'm off to place my order.

      Hahaha, I was waiting for the go lower/drop it posts to start showing up. Sorry, they are not adjustable and I am not swapping my suspension again. It is what it is.

      dont worry the great scenery of PCH draws the attention away from the 1" gap

      looks good though. i love taking a cruise along PCH every once in awhile. very relaxing. too bad so many damn cops down south

      One of my favorite drive is on the oregon coast and the north cali coast.

      I like the wheels, but for me I still like the silver or light grey contrast against the UG. Too much gray in my opinion. Don't color match - shave it!

      Hey Masemoto, we should meet up some time.

      I live right off El Toro in OC. Very close to Aliso Viejo.

      SWEEET car by the way...UG FTW!

      The BBS wheels and stance look great on your car.

      What springs and struts are you using? What size are the wheels and tires? Thanks.
