      Your interiors soo sick..what did you use to condition it?

      Thanks man I used this stuff along with leather cleaner of the same brand http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Magic-850.../dp/B000BO6MFC

      And I've noticed that too, mine never hits going out forwards but if I back up my valence will sometimes hit if I'm impatient. I'm not nearly your ride height though.

      Looks good man! Love the color. Did the neuspeeds lower it 1.25"? Your setup height wise looks perfect IMO.

      I would deff go with a 205/45 or 215/45. 205 wouldn't stretch... I'd go with that.

      Do you mean the 215 wouldn't stretch? I think the 205 gives it some stretch but nothing drastic.

      I don't think I want to run a 40 since it will show a lot of wheel gap. But I think I'm pretty convinced on getting 205/45s.

      thanks man, If I find a 3 spoke cheap this summer I'll pick one up. It's been on my wish list for a while.

      well I'll be getting there eventually, and hopefully this summer. The thing with 40 sidewalls is you have to be slammed to make them look good. And the only way to get out of my driveway slammed would have to be air. But I'm planning on going low with a 45 but still be able to exit my driveway.

      I can't wait for the wheels to go on though. I decided I'm going to leave them polished but try and get the curb rash repaired before they get tires and go on. Just need to find a place that can do it reasonably.

      There's gotta be a way to pull in and out of your drive way! I've gotten in to some hairy stuff... though I'm not that low. Where there is a will there is a way.

      Also how well did that pen work and how much was it? I have a ton of small scratches and rock chips and IDK how to start fixing it. Should i buff and polish first then use touch up paints, or what lol. Just wondering if you happened to know and curious of your experience with the pen method.

      yeah once I get coilovers I'll see how it does at different heights. My dad ruined his front spoiler on his 944 getting out of our entrance though and he's only like an inch lower.

      The Pens were $15 at the dealer, and they do a really good job at hiding the chips. I just started with a clean area then sanded the chip with 400 grit sandpaper and then applied the paint with a couple coats and then clear. Next week I'm going to smooth it over with sandpaper since It's a little uneven now, but it works very well.

      Did you get the clear from the dealer as well? And was that in pen form? I have no idea how touch up paint works but gotta do something about the scratches/rock chips... My front bumper is toast though I think you've seen it before.

      Yeah I would rather save for an s4 bumper. And you should definitely go, we should get a b5 cruise going. Ik prem is going (the one with the plastidipped b5). And I'll most likely go to dustoff supposed to be the biggest meet in new england?

      Yeah I don't know much about it either but I'll be down for a cruise to dustoff as well. I'll see if Prem is down for a cruise to uconn.

      well my car has been really bouncy lately which leads me to believe my rear struts are bad

      Anyone ever deal with bilsteins warranty on their struts? Mine were bought used from the junkyard so I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to get around that

      If anything I'm going to have to look for some used. No way I can afford new ones this year, got too much going on with this and the cougar

      I still want to try the warranty and see if I have any luck.

      Not much of an update but washed my engine bay since it's been long over due for one.

      Before:



      After:



      And I was thinking about painting my stock caps on all the reservoir tanks black, and maybe outline the symbols in silver paint. What do you guys think?



      ^This ****ty photoshop gives you a little idea. Opinions?

      Well got pulled over today in Hartford for my window tint . I have no idea what to do now, the ticket is $230 and I think I have to take my tint off? It doesn't say on the ticket, I think the cop said I had to get it off by my court date but I really do not want to. He didn't even give me an envelope so I can plead not guilty. Is there a way for me to keep my tint and not pay this???

      A friend of a friend told me about a b5 a4 that just rolled into the junkyard he works at with kw coilovers. Went to go find it today and it must've been at the shop still. I did manage to find these though for $10. May have to go back later to pick up the other rain tray thing for the drivers side windshield wiper.



      And found this in a d2 a8. Did they even make turbo 5 cylinders for them?!
