      I'm not sure yet, this will be my first time with bags so I need to talk with some people that have experience installing them to see what my options are.

      You sure about that?!

      You had my favorite car on the forum, you hit all of the essentials and went with my 2 favorite brands APR and Forge.

      The BBS CH-R are fantastic and the KW V3's are some of the best coilovers on the market, are you sure air ride is really going to improve it?

      I'm sure an air suspension can handle okay, will it perform better than the KW V3's set up professionally, I doubt it. There's a reason why Motorsport teams choose not to run bags, there is no budget in these instances its whatever works.

      I made the comment for the sake of aesthetics, not function. I don't think any car looks right with cambered wheels, a frame on the ground and the fenderwell a couple cm off of the lip of the rim. When most people see it they assume the car is broken and the suspension gave out or your in a gang in Compton running car on hydraulics due to the offset wheels and amount of camber. Everybody has their own tastes, I appreciate that. I just felt the car was perfect as is.

      I had a very similar feeling this past weekend when I was in a photo shoot with a car on bags. I looked at my car and was like, holy crap its a monster truck, maybe bags would be cool. But when we were driving around I was like, I don't want to mess with buttons/electronics/pneumatics every time I want my car to look good. Then I saw the pics of my car and was like, EFF BAGS my ****s perfect!
