No lift required.

Both of those are super easy.

What do you think about their relocation? It really sucks for Hickory that they have to drive all the way to Charlotte for service.

I like that they reconstructed in Charlotte and it does suck to have to drive all the way to Charlotte, but then again, how often do you have to go in for service? It just gives you an excuse to take the back roads into the city.


So when are we going to have a meet in Charlotte? I keep seeing a white 1M driving around, anybody on this forum?

I am in Durham and currently looking at 135s and 335s. I sold my 04 Cobra in January and had an 02 Honda S2000 prior to that. Trying to get back into something that is a compromise of the two with speed and handling, as well as some comfort for my daily commute.

If I end up with a 1, I'd be down for a Raleigh/Charlotte meet.

I was hoping to show up last night, however my job requires me to be out of town 4 days at a time, so I couldn't make it. I am planning on coming out next Thursday depending on location. How many cars usually show up?

Anyone around here with n54 that has been untouched by the dealership?

The reason I ask is I want to check your DME software number.
They updated my DME with new firmware and it "detuned" it a bit and I want to revert back.

For your cooperation I will code your car for free.

So after looking at my car from every angle many times, and the fact that I slightly rub with weight in the trunk driving on the horrible Charlotte roads, I have decided I need to raise the rear slightly. I would do this myself except...

1. I have moved to 7 different states (New York, Ohio, Florida, Arizona, Virginia, Massachusetts and North Carolina) for work over the past 3 years. I am finally at a stable job in Charlotte, but the moving has caused me to sell most of my things to make moving easier, hence I have no floor jack and would prefer not to buy one just to adjust my coilovers.

2. I live with my friend who bought a townhouse. It does have a garage and driveway, however, they are just wide enough to fit the car on which leaves absolutely no room to jack the car up. This also makes washing the car a pain in the a$$. The HOA also hates the fact that I was my car so much, but I don't care.

So I am wondering if anyone would be able to help me with adjusting my rear coilovers quickly one of these days. I just want to raise them up roughly 10mm which shouldn't mess up the alignment to bad since they have settled roughly 10mm over the past 9 months since I installed them. In fact it might even help it. Drinks are on me for the help. Thanks!!!

What days work best for you since I live up in North Charlotte and my schedules are a mess since I go to work for 4 days at a time. I've tried to make it down to meets on Thursdays, just hasn't worked out with my schedule lately.
