Looks great!! Now just tint (if not done already, hard to tell) to add to the stealth look.

looking sharp! was looking for a good light weight wheels and it seems these are winners. I have the same front suspension setup as yours. are you maxing out your front cambers for no rubbing? also how much drop do you have?

Thanks for the compliments all!

I don't have a drop height number, but she's pretty low. She can go more if I wanted, but I'm happy with where she sits now. I DO have a TAD BIT of rubbing, but it's nothing to be concerned about at all. It barely rubs. And, it's really rare that it does. I'm pretty much at max. negative camber (-2.8) to fit these 245/35/18 Hankooks. A different tire would likely fit a little better up front. Or, a 235 ...that I don't want to change to.

The car had about 200 miles on it of bugs, brake dust, etc. That front hue is in fact brake dust coming from my new Pagid RS 4-2-1 pads. I actually like when the wheels get an even hue of brake dust on them, especially since the car is black as it sets the wheels off a bit more. This was the first wash in some time as I only hand wash her.

Thanks again everyone! I'll take some more/better pictures eventually.

THANKS so much!

I'll tell everyone that the power and handling are just remarkable now. While IMHO she looks BAD ASS, I was really going for performance over anything else. It's truly an amazing car. I LOVE IT.

(I do love the looks she gets from so many people though! Someone came up to me yesterday and said, "wow, that looks SO sinister." Yup!)

I will track the car for sure. And, def. do want a LSD. But, they are big $ and I'm pretty drained right now after all this. I'm running 450#/800# springs, so the car does not squat AT ALL and, even on the street, a LSD would be beneficial. The outside rear wheel literally lifts off the ground in some STREET situations with this setup. It's hilarious. (Down pipes would be nice too.)

The tips were ordered with the exhaust from Meisterschaft. They were not painted by me.
