      (I always feel like a tool when I use the term slammed)

      How far have you driven your low low car in one day? What kind of issues, if any, did you have?

      1450 miles in 27 hours from Toronto, ON to North Port, FL.

      23~ GTF, in one of the worst storms PA, NY, VA, WV, and OH have seen.



      Zero issues. It has also gone to and from OC, MD for H20 2 years in a row...800 ish miles with zero issues on any long trim.

      Yeah I've had it for a while, top to bottom. Just never did a seat swap since I have manual seats. Didn't want to deal with wiring.

      Well when we all finally meet up again I'll buy Nic a coke and give him a kiss.

      Yeah i almost made it....i guess theres a reason why everyone said not to stretch nankangs. we were switching lanes and the ass just dumped and starting swaying. we instantly pulled over and noticed what happened. we used the stock jack to get the wheel off and after the gotti was off the stock jack blew over and my car smacked the guard rail..not that bad at all though..overall the car will be fine again. Dave and his friends are bringing down wheels for me and i just need to figure out wtf im going to do now.

      Sell the Gottis or go down to 9.5 lips. Get larger tires....I can't believe you were running a 205 on a 10" wheel. I'm running a 205 on an 8.5" wheel and sometimes my fender pulls the tire off the bead and it leaks....when I get new tires going up to a 215/40.

      I'm not technically "slammed", but I am lowered. I drove from NY to Myrtle Beach last year, drove while down there for over a week, and drove back. Got my low oil pressure warning light maybe 5 min from my house, on my drive back. Talk about good timing. Dropped oil pan, replaced pick up tube, placed in oil pressure gauge (not trying to have this happen to me again), and have a healthy engine (can see over 100psi of oil pressure on start up). Anyways, pic of my ride height.

      I don't own the car anymore, but the furthest was to h20 last year. Took 10 hours (supposed to take 4) due to Poor planning and traffic. About 180-200 miles. Ftg was 22.25"





      Don't think I ever posted that photo. Shadow ruined it

      RI to Killington VT, about 4 hours or so. That's been the longest so far. H2O will be the next longest and I plan to bring it down to Virginia in a couple of weeks. About 24" GTF

      Sounds brutal, but I really don't. Maybe because it was so slow. Mk5 is stage 2 currently..planning to have my high pressure fuel pump rebuilt by APR and go stage 2+ in a few weeks. Such a blast to drive. I guess I got tired of the show & no go aspect of my b5

      I still love looking at them though. Such a classy sedan. I will never get tired of looking at them
