Illest Content Inside

Finally was able to get a shoot of the car after a short list of new mods. Huge shout out to Ron@MB for hooking me up with the VMR VB3's. They are perfect . If you're in the market for some VMR's give him a shout and he'll set you right. Here is what has been added since the last time I took some shots. ANDY thank you for some great pictures my man

Vogtland springs gave it a dope drop
VMR VB3's (19x9.5 et30 front, 19x10 et38 rear) on 235/35/19's
Trunk lip spoiler
Satin silver gauge rings, red sharpie mod (huge difference)


























Notice Hitler looking at my "German sled"


























Don't get a hard on, now.




Here are two pics I took just to show the fitment. When I first put the wheels on and test drove, the wheel rubbed some metal inside my fenders. Trimmed them up a sh!tload more and that took care of it. I still have more room to trim so eventually I'll do that and push the rears out a little more and probably add some more neg. camber.

for sure. front rubs (no trim or roll) and the rear tires scrub and there is nothing I can do about that while keeping this offset

lower in the front for sure if I go lower in the rear the rim will rub metal like it did before I trimmed it even more

thanks dude. OEM shocks (I know I know) but these springs are designed for their dampening rate or whatever. I haven't felt them bottom out either, those bump stops are great. Didn't get ANY interior shots on this shoot. nothing special in there except decently clean.

yep. first time I ever trimmed I took a sawzaw to the fender lip and that was it. when I trimmed it last week I shaved the lip down to a minimum (but left a slight lip for strength) and the actually cut long pieces of metal out from inside the fender. I'll PM you some pics of that in a few days if you want to see how it look under there. nothing extreme but def. took some metal out!
