nope! i kept my bumper shocks, kevlar bar, and removed my washer bottle altogether ill be going back and removing the headlight washer system as well as the corresponding headlight trims!

man maintenance ruined me for the first few months as well i had kevin do my valve adjustment and go over everything in terms of vanos and all checked out. when i get another one done within the next year ill have him check it again, but so far the motor is sounding healthy and running strong


as for subframe reinforcement the verts dont share the same catastrophes that the coupes do, but i still check it from time to time when i tweak my suspension. the next maintenance items i have are refreshing the suspension (fcabs, rtabs, coupler, reinforcement plates, endlinks, tierods) when i upgrade to BC coils

Yeah the maintenance is really setting me back. I had Kevin come over and do my valve adjustment as well also had him put in the turbotoy v3 hub in. I'm just to paranoid not to have it. I'm saving up to do the rear subframe reinforcement right now. The part list is getting confusing. I can't wait till that is done then I can start modding!

That looks like to be a good suspension refresh. Keep up the good work!

i remember reading on that v3 hub and was actually going to purchase it til kevin told me i was safe. the fact that i only had two shims that needed to be adjustment kind of put me at ease as well.

send me some pics of your car! i havent seen it yet
