      Car is in the shop getting a face lift. Hopefully I'll have it by the end of the week! I also bought wheels for it... The specs are 18x8/9 et 38 - after adapters et 18 all around. I'v been trying to figure out what tire set up I want to go with. I was thinking...

      front - 205/40
      rear - 215/40

      Would that set up f*ck with the car. I know you have to stay in some % with the tire sizes when it comes to staggered set ups on our cars. Any incite would be appreciated

      Yo! You got the coilovers on. Looking good! How do you like them?

      And speaking of new tips, you should check out Vibrant tips. Same look as 42draft design's but half the cost.
      I have my eyes set on these ones

      Yes sir! I'll def look into those man

      So a lil update... I got the adapters for the Mercedes wheels, and got them mounted today. The specs are 18x8 et18, 18x9 et 18. Unfortunately I ran into a little issue that I looked over. My plan was to run the tires I had on the Aristo's for the spring time, which are 225/40's. Ounce summer was to roll around I was going to purchase new tires. After getting the wheels mounted up, we dropped the car and the rear was sitting absolutely perfect! The front on the other hand was not to my liking. So I ordered 205/40's for the front. Ounce the new tires come in, I will roll my fenders and actually lower this pig



      And the issue, mexi poke





      Another shot...

      Got the 205/40's mounted, and lowered the front to my liking. I'm going to take out the rear perches tomorrow to get the rear down a little big more.




      As far as my review on the coils... They ride great for how low I am. I would definitely tell someone to purchase them if they're looking to buy coilovers under 1k.

      So ive grown bored of the Lorinser wheels... I was offered trades for audi RS6 wheels... the only downfall is that they are 19's. Anyone running 19's static, and actually pulling them off?

      So I finally got the new wheels mounted up on the car...





      I'm not keeping the black for very long. Should be going into powder coating with in the next month. Other then that, the car hasn't changed much. I got bored last night, and decided to do a little "spring cleaning" with the passenger side of the engine bay... Here's a before/during/after shot...



      Ounce I get my intake in, and relocate my battery, I'll start cleaning up the driver side. Hopefully by summer time I can get the ball rolling on this car. I'm going to try and get these things sorted out by the end of summer...


      • TT/or Schrick Cams
      • Relocate the Battery
      • Clean up the driver side of the engine bay
      • BFI Stage 2 motor mount kit
      • Get the wheels powder coated
      • Auto Power 4 point roll bar
      • OEM/Rep projector headlights

      relocated the power steering, routed the headlight harness under the frame rail, took out the windshield washer res, and organized the mess behind the coolant bubble. When I get a UM flash, I'll remove the evap stuff, and get rid of the sai too.

      Since there was a cruise coming up this weekend, I was trying to get the wheels powdercoated by then. Unfortunately that isnt going to happen. So instead I decided to spray bomb them They actually turned out really freaking good

      I put it behind the oil cooler in the fender well. All I did was bought new hosing, re-routed the two hosing that went through the PS, and bolted it to the lower oil cooler mount.

      They do not clear the calipers. I have a 3mm spacer, and they barley clear.
