      I just got it in and only drove it for a few minutes to make sure I still had AWD

      So far far so good-feels like the race controller. I need more time to familiarize myself with it as far as braking enhancement

      pics would be pointless since they are just of black visors. i know if you do a search you should be able to find the write up though. i just took them out (not necessary but i did it at my work desk today) with the one t20 screw and pushed them toward the windshield. unplugged the plug and shazaam! soaked a blue shop rag in 91% (rec 99% if you can find it) alcohol and let it sit for about 30-45 mins. pulled the sticker right off and cleaned the remaining bits of glue. put a little bit of tire dress and buffed it off with a dingleberry free towel and reinstalled to enjoy.

      i did have to have a interior guy touch it up a little because i couldnt get 100% of the glue off though due to me using 91% alcohol.

      Yeah I'm very happy with the way they came out and it only cost me $550 to get them done. I'm thinking KW V1 coilovers.

      You get the idea. Sgt, there's a share dropdown on Flickr. Just set the radio button in there to BBCode, pick your resolution, and copy the snippet of code into your post.

      Love the car BTW. I thought about getting my original wheels done in black and putting them on the JSW when I buy new ones for the R, but I may hold off for a bit and see where I go. Anyway, looks great! Enjoy!

      I love those black wheels so much. My only complaint with the R is that we didn't get those as an optional set of wheels from the factory. Am envious of you.
