Yup! $5k is actually very cheap for these BBS LMs. Other quotes I got were all $6k+

Next list of mods I'd like to get is an exhaust, would love a Dixis Titanium but they're pretty hard to get. Then Recaro Pole Positions. That'll probably be it, oh and angel eyes. Another thing on the wish list would be a BBK like an Alcon one but that's a lot of coin!

Be careful of hitting gutters etc with stretch tyres.

If you put 295 tyres on the rear you will not have that finger gap. Also the car will look alot meatier/wider.

Again its your choice. But I do like your wheel choice/specs.

Meisterchaft gt or akropovik exhaust are nice imo.

Alcons are nice, AP racing is another great choice. 6P front and 4P rear. But you dont really need it.

Oh and that is a good price for LMs

Thanks. Hmm, not sure about the 295. I haven't heard of anyone running 295s with this size/offset. People can run 285s but they need to cut their rear fenders. I guess it also depends how low you go, but if you tuck tyre, the largest I've read is a 285 with cut fenders. Though one thing that I learned, I didn't expect the FK452s to stretch so much. If you compare them to a 275 of another tyre, it won't be as stretched. So if I did it again, I'd either go a 275 in another brand tyre or run a 285 FK452 and I reckon I'd still have good clearance.

Nice mod list. I have airbox envy.

After a lot of research i went for an Eisenmann Race - very happy with it. Second choice would be SuperSprint... Only because my mechanic is an Eisenmann dealer though.

Yep. The ado8s will be good and the pss for a 275 it should reduce the stretch.

Not sure what height I'm at, but my mechanic was measuring from the bottom of the rim to the fender and I recall the rear measurement being 57cm. So add say another 5cm of tyre thickness, so from the ground to my fender it's probably 62cm. Though he couldn't get it level, the left rear was 5mm higher than the right. The fronts were even.

My KW rears sit unevenly, too. It's like 1cm. OP, car looks spot on. I love it.

Got an alignment done today and took some better pics. Will order in a 5mm spacer soon for the rear. For now I'll probably keep the ride height. I've already scraped the front a few times on dips even going at angles and very slowly...

Looks beautiful, congratulations! I love the stance, I'm interested to see whether or not this setup will sacrifice performance and handling in more spirited driving.
