      did you put some sort of trim where your lower door moldings used to be ?

      ive often thought about some sort of thin trim just to cover the holes and ****.. but could never really find anything that looked "right"

      wheels look tits though.. looks like the back could stand to come down or out more IMO

      haha.

      ive had those moldings on there for 2 winters now and not a single issue

      just rolled my front fenders. f*cked the paint on one pretty bad (didnt use a heat gun and first time doing it ), the other one came out perfect. lowered the fronts a tiny bit, and pretty much maxed out the rears (1 thread left). and im still at 23.25. my bumpstops are cut halfway, i was expecting more low from sts tho

      just measured the gtf and its 22.85 all around. ride is perfect, however i have one issue.

      before installing coilovers i had an allignment done and my wheel was straight and the car did not pull to a side. my coilovers are set identically on both sides, but my steering wheel is cocked to the left and pulls pretty hard. which side should i try raising left or right in order to try to correct this issue?

      Alignment AFTER coilover install should solve that problem. Lots of people recommend getting an alignment pretty much after every time a suspension bolt is removed.

      thanks.

      dont have any pics of the arches at the moment.

      make sure you use a heat gun, otherwise your paint will chip like crazy. i removed the fender liner, cut off about an inch, where the liner meets the fender. i wrapped a towel over a hammer and just hammered the lip inwards as i was applying heat every like 30 seconds. reinstalled the liner. came out nice and i have no rubbing at all.

      couple more pics.

      i wish! i dont even think my studs will allow me to run 10mm spacer. On the website it said 5mm max but ill have to check how many threads i have left on them.

      rai test pipe + no resonator + stock piping + s4 muffler = amazing tone imo

      ill post a clip once i fix my exhaust leak
      the install wasnt bad at all actually. before starting i read a diy on audiworld, where it said you have to unbolt the downpipe off the cat in order to pull it out. this would pretty much be impossible to do, but you do not have to do it. take off the clamp that connects downpipe to the rest of the exhaust. remove one spring loaded bolt that holds the downpipe in place, and remove 3 nuts off the turbo. remove both o2s and just pull the cat and downpipe together through the top with some wiggling. make sure you have two people, one should be feeding it from the bottom and the other pulling it from the top. the install was a piece of cake, ill give it 3-4/10 if you know how to wrench.


      the wheels are:
      Etoile 455 2pc 20bolt design
      17x8.5 et20
      17x9.5 et25
      5x112
