SO what was I saving before H20i for might one ask?
A better ride height
After constantly fighting with my girl over the car being too low for her to drive static (we share it) I made a plan to bag the car and do some choice mod to actually improve the handling from where it was at.
With all good plans they take some time and this plan won't be followed through until spring 2012.
Because winter sucks, and sucky winter setups are a bummer I decided to put together a decent winter setup.
biting the style of the great gtikole white on UG with some Blizzak stretch.
17"x8.5" et 29 205/40 front 205/45 rear.
I also added a Jap spec tdi rear
And a white smiley (another kole bite)
Well apparently all my imitation and posing caught up to me, two weeks ago the car got backed into parked outside my apartment.
The bumper, grill, headlight, and worst of all BOSER HOOD got damaged.
Hit and run **** me.
So this is where I am at now. The car is headed to the body shop for repairs, the hood is fixable thank the lord, shaved bumper, and new fenders are being done. (mine are ****ed from static life)
I have a few more suspension bits waiting to be installed and to finalize the suspension setup.
I will have big H&R sway bars 26mm front 28mm rear, Ground Control camber plates, Koni dampening adjustment shocks. It will lay frames and tuck some decent rubber stretched over wide wheels.
The Works are sold the 2012 summer setup will include 225/35 Goodyear F1 Asymmetric tires.
The wheels will look a lot like these except PC'd silver and tucking front and rear on fresh new front fenders.
I am in the Bahamas for a few weeks/month or two working and the car is headed to the body shop. Updates will be slow for the next month or so but there will be some big changes coming towards the end of winter/ spring.
sorry for the long post lol.
