      Haha I understand the concern but it will only be driven on the weekends, to and from the mountains. Kept inside otherwise, I can walk to work.

      yea...its not getting garaged, its a car, its made to be driven.

      lower the rear
      i like the bit of rake its got, plus 15" winter wheels are going on this weekend so it will be raised all around

      I would touch up that bumper tho..
      if there was a better pic you could see that the whole bumper is ****ed, clearcoat is peeling all over it so it will be my beater bumper for the winter then a freshly painted new cover is going on, along with an OEM VR lip.
