      HAHA my bad, the combination of the shadows in the pic and the lighting and my work monitor with the brightness/contrast turned down the whole way made it appear purpleish...

      I'm working on a shave on my 2.8 and JamesHimself has a good 1.8t shave going on. Also Needinganaudi has a good 1.8t shave in the works too. I'm sure you've seen them on here. It looks good though I'd definitely recomend a new coolant tank if you don't plan on scratching it.

      Marc we've gone over this before i swear. i only have them because i needed them and they were a cheap fix. biggest issue right now is fixing certain things from a bad night racing in the passes last october. i have go pro video of it happening too, but i feel like enough of an idiot for even having to show you guys these pics.
      these were from a couple days before




      and these were from after the wreck





      radiator support cracked alittle, also crushed my intercooler piping so we made a quick replacement that night, stitched her up and heres what shes living with now.


      This is with my girlfriends car
