      they have

      Wasn't expecting it but it was greatly appreciated. Christian and Robert are really cool guys over there. Plus, they're helping me brush up on my German at the same time.

      I will make a post on the other forums.

      TLud, got any new pics of the car? Curious to see how it's looking now that the springs have been on for a few weeks.

      Alright, alright. I'll take some more in the next day or two.

      I wish I had brought my camera today when I met up with Trackhead (cool dude). When I first got them put on, the Euro-spec R springs with the 19" wheels and 235/35 tires seemed to have a pretty subtle effect on wheel gap, but seeing it side-by-side with Trackhead's stock wheels and suspension, it was a pretty dramatic difference. I apologize for not taking any side-by-side pics when I had the chance.

      Quotes like that tell me that either they don't know what they're doing or they're taking advantage of you. Either way, no bueno.
      Any reasonable installation prices in the N. VA/DC/MD area? I don't like how my R feels somewhat floaty/spongy on hard cornering.

      Thanks, TLud.

      I can attest the difference between TLud's car and mine is dramatic. It'sgoing to cost me...

      Make the group buy happen!

      I will let the pics speak for themselves. It'll be parking lot pics and no editing, so nothing special. What you'll see is what you'll get.

      Yeah, I was going to take some pics of just my car earlier this week, but I figured comparison pics against a stock car would be worth a few days' wait.

      Pretty obvious difference. You'd never think so just looking at the numbers. Gunmetal looks so killer on RB too!
