Thanks! Your Topaz looks really clean. I'm generally not a fan of grey interior but you pull it off quite nicely with that color and accents. Also love the house

Low

Got the springs in, she went low. Love the stance, much better than stock and surprisingly good ride quality

Wow, Roblynn; that is low, especially for springs. Looks like a coilover drop. Apparently, the Vogtlands and the Teins give the most significant drop out of the available springs on the market....well, at least the reputable ones.
