Mike Hundreds Build Thread - HPF-Fortune Auto-V702-Cobb -UPDATE PAGE 2-

Kind of late on starting a build thread, but got my wheels mounted yesterday and thought I'd start one anyway. Heres a list of whats done so far..

HPF 3.5'' Exhaust
Cobb AP
ER Chargepipe W/Tial BOV
Carbon Fiber Dual Fin Diffuser
Carbon Fiber Spoiler
H&R Super Sport Springs
VMR V702 Wheels - Brushed Aluminum/Matte Gunmetal 18x8.5 et35 18x9.5 et45
Fortune Auto 500 Gen5 Coilovers (Not installed yet)
VRSF Downpipes (Not installed yet)
Carbon Fiber Splitters - Ebay (Not installed yet)

Shout out to VMR for the wheels, great service and great wheels, thanks again.

Heres a few quick pics right after I got them on, hopefully can get a proper shoot done soon after I get the coils on.

Are there any rubbing issues with the +35 offset for the fronts? What size tyres are you running? First decent V702 pics I've seen on a 1er, looks great!

Awesome! I actually like the tinted lights. I didn't think I would. Carbon Fiber front lip would pull it all together.

Very nice, the lower offsets give you some good concavity!

Zero rubbing front and rear, fenders are rolled flat up front and mildly in the rear, Stock tires sizes, 215/40, 245/35, but Michelin ps2's so they run wide. Natural camber from springs.

What spring rates did you go with? I may pm you, I got some questions about the install.

Just got the carbon fiber splitters in the mail today, they will def need some adjusting to fit proper, but that was expected coming from ebay, will keep u posted.

No just springs, was fine at first now rides terrible. Only got them temporary cause I knew I was getting coilovers.

Got the carbon fiber splitters from ebay yesterday and put them on today. Needed a little shaving with a dremel for a better fit, but overall very happy with them for the price.

A few quick pics I took after the alignment today. The ride and handling is amazing, big thanks to BrRacing in Los Gatos for the great service and advice.

Cars looking good, I really like the wheels and the exhaust.
How is the exhaust to live with, did you get the resonated or straight through one?
