hah well then start modding. Well the status gruppe coils are great and i love mine. if your really looking to be slammed on the ground, i would go with the broadways statics + cup kit. Im in the process of putting some funds away for that exact setup right now.

ok, and in your opinion how was the fitment with SGT trunk. I've look at a few other opinion and they all seem to need adjustment to the front at a body shop...

4/26 - Weekend Update. Got a few things done.

-Had tires mounted on the meisters.
-Fixed my seized coilover height adjuster
-Threw the meisters back on.
-and some pictures of mods i did but never posted pics.


so to start of with what yall care about, the pictures.







now for the seized coilover work. had to drop the strut, soak it in WD-40 and Liquid Wrench. Took me 4-5 hours just to get the adjuster to make one full rotation, after that it was back to normal. took the adjust off, lubed everything up real nice and put it back together.



this guy on the bottom here, did not want to move. if i didnt get it, i wouldve been stuck at my winter heights.









now for a few gratuitous shots of the TechnoMeisters





And this is where i am as of literally 10 minutes ago.



wheels are going on, and its now just a game of find the perfect ride height.

i went to the store intending on buying PB-blaster for it. got there all they had was wd-40 and liquid wrench. the latter worked alot better than the WD-40.

haha, so when your wheels coming?

I just bought a anothe set of Racing hart Crs for my Z32 that I'm going to do a custom step lip with since it's never been done before. Wheel flip is stil searching for them so If I manage to find a set of AC Schnitzer Type 2 Racing 19" before they call. then I'm snagging them up... I do think I need to slow down I think I've spent around 3k this month and random car parts lol...

you want ACS 19's you say??? i have a friend who can custom build them for you. PM the member EuroSlut on here, m3forum, or stanceworks. he's built a ridiculous amount of wheels all of which have been pretty epic.

yea but the problem with black it seems is that it gets filthy after 5 minutes of driving haha. Might just be my car since it's so scratched up though

either way nice car and nice touch with the techno, is it a more noticeable purple in person?
