    Finally took some pics after the coilover install. Ride is greatly improved over stock as the slight lack of feedback is the only complaint I have of this car in stock form. Steering is a little heavier feeling, which is good, and I can really feel the road what the car is doing a lot better. Turn in seems quicker and cornering is much flatter although there is still room for improvement *cough*swaybarsnext*cough*

    I like the looks too although I think I may drop the front a little more and I def want to mess around with the rebound settings a bit.

    The front is coming down very slightly. No one here will probably even be able to tell.

    So do the wheels look a little better now w/ the drop??

    You are such a sack rider :ugh: Their BBS wheels.

    Curious the drop for some reason makes the whole car looks better imo compared to previous pics.

    Before it looked like the wheels didn't fit in looks pretty bardass to me :o

    Thanks :big grin: Yea, it def looks better with the drop. There was just too much wheel gap with the stock suspension and 19s. Common issue when going to larger aftermarket wheels. I really should have waited to put the wheels on until after I changed the suspension but when you have new parts sitting in your garage staring at you it's a little hard to resist :)

    M4A1: The wheels are 19" BBS RS-GTs w/ diamond black centers.

    Oh, they're BBS. So many people have those, how could CGM3 dare purchase them!? He should stride to be different and spend more on wheels just so other people don't have them. You are :greddy:.

    You didn't even know what kind of wheels they were.

    After all you suggested that other clown to put some LM's on his ride do you know who makes LM's BBS you're a genius :o

    Correct, I didn't know. That's would be why I asked...

    And I do know that BBS makes LMs, but I've never seen RS-GTs before.

    george M3, I'm digging the updates.

    The rear looks great, but the front could be dropped more. What tire setup are you running? If you want to kill that understeer, either match the tires or get some camber plates. PS I dropped my e46 1.5" in the rear and 2" up front.

    Thanks man! I did drop the front some more and now it looks a lot better. I do also have camber plates but I'm not gonna mess with them until I have the time to do a track event.

    Thanks! I might check that show out. When and where is it?
