Thanks man!
Whats wrong with your car? has the spacers come in yet? you need that to clear the KW coilovers right?

The air suspension is pretty good, ride is smooth as usual. Bags get filled up pretty quick, and gets released pretty quick. Its not like those other ones ive seen when you release it, it just drops and makes a clunk noise.

Im really happy with it

Honestly, i have no clue if i am lol. Ive never touched the camber settings.
But with the camber kit, i plan to have it cambered enough so that the rear sits as low as the front lol.

I did give the it a wash, its more a on-off thing. I love it so much some times then sometimes i get over it and just want to sell i'll see once i get the sideskirts and front lip on.

Yeah i want something with more power. Not sure what to get aye..I was looking to give euros a break too haha, give a silvia a go for awhile then get into either a E93 or E46 M3 would be great. E46 M3 would be more affordable though haha..hopefully my internship will help me to get it!
