      FML the 4-door looks so much better. I messed up.

      Nice thread bro keep it coming. Keeps me motivated. As soon as I elevate myself from broke status, I'll be starting a thread of my own to bring my CW back from the dead. She's not too happy right now.

      looks good! how do you like the Konis? everybody seems to love them. I'm only looking for a subtle/slight drop, don't want to worry about rolling fenders, etc., and don't want the ride to suffer much. won't ever track the car -- it's my dd, so seems like a solid choice.

      keep the pics coming

      Koni's are awesome...they give you plenty of play between riding like a cadillac and a nice firm set up for the corners....i do wish they would go another 1/4 inch lower though...with the detroits i don't rub at all, but my front fenders are rolled

      I will take more pics when i try on my new wheels

      thats stock...i think the only ones with the nittos are the night ones...there is no noticeable difference in ride height or handling/accel/etc between the two...the nittos actually have better traction even though they are 20mm narrower
