      Though im new to stance, poke, tuck, roll, etc. i think its about time i get familiar with it.
      Im more performance aspect of my b5, but hell why not go low, it just adds that much more character to the car.
      Ive done a few oil pans, after 5 or 6 you really dont dread it anymore.

      its done im going low!

      anyone have any suggestions on a set of coilovers in the 2000 budget range. ?
      and possibly a good reference thread to Stance?
      im intrigued !

      wheel suggestions are welcome too.
      (currently have a set of bbs lm's in the works)
      Honestly I would go with ST's they're great for the price. I have them currently on my S4 and they go way lower than the car can ride daily and I already burnt my fenders Busting oil pans goes along with the territory hahaha. I would suggest buying or fabing up a metal under belly pan. As for wheels just go with what you like or you think will work. Just be inventive! Also what part of L.A. are you from?

      I've been having the same conversation with my wife now for a few weeks. I'm trying to weight the pros and cons. I want to sell just because it would be nice to have a car that I can rely on but I don't because I finally built the S4 after a few months of just sitting. My heart says no but logic tells me I should sell.

      Nope! Either way I haven't had any real time since I'm always doing maintenance on this thing.

      I've contemplated doing that but It would just be a waist of more money. I'm better off just buying an new car as whole.

      We'll see how the car goes a few weeks from now.

      man i looked at so many wrx's before i bought my b5 but they were all abused so hard, or stupidly over priced. I also tested an evo 3, that thing in my opinion was way more nimble/driver friendly than even a JDM wrx type ra i also tested. I grew up with subies all my life and love them, but i think id pick an evo over one just because theyre even more rare. In igloo land anyways lol

      Only problem I see is that you're in Cali. Not sure if an S4 in general can make a trip that long lol

      I stayed up till 3:30 am this morning to finally get the S on the road. I got the new power steering pump in, outer belt tensioner and everything back in place. Started the car for 15 mins turned the wheel and "POP/GUSH". low and behold the freaking power steering pressure hose(under the Y pipe) took a sh!t on me. Wow! you got to be f'ing me! Any who at least I could turn the wheel for a good 10 mins...haha. I went trough 2 cans of Pentosin 11S just to find out the main culprit all along was the P.S.P hose. I went to the dealer to pick the hose up and it's $300 for a F'ing 12" hose...wow. I cant find the hose any where ells some help would be appreciated.
      -Sorry for the rant but I just need to get out off my chest-

      Can some one please tell me what's wrong with this pic....LOL



      It's a matter of splatter.


      crapy pic, ignore the blue car the real fitted car is the Honda Hx.



      Phat!

      Does anyone know where I can find a diagram or install for the power steering pressure hose for the 2.7TT. I've looked high and low and can't find jack sh!t. Here is what the hose looks like FYI.
