Well thats just because Imola WA 4.8is (foto belo) put his on K dubs and it looked ridiculously sick. The only reason I would put it on air is because it is partially on air from the factory. I don't hate, I just don't like what ya'll like. I'm not really into show. Yeah tru I'm into making a car look dope- but I drive the sht outta my car. Not essential for me, nor is it my tastes. Like I said a VIP car on air is straight. A true vip car, not a vip styled car- thats different.

I agree a true vip car is always proper on air but vip styled not so much

Like if I EVER VIPd a E38 (I wouldn't, I would make it look dope but not vip) it would be on coilovers. Thats VIP style.

But if I did a UCF20, AIR.

so just curious what if you did a JZS161 since it is borderline would it be air or coils cause mine would be on bags

Well see with a GS, you could do either or. Because its automatic, world wide- even the Aristo I couldn't have any fun with it, aka a drift car like its bigger brother the Verossa. I would throw it on air. I know I know, Automatic 2JZs for the win- literally. I couldn't fade it.

Im guessing Air is only for looks...

ie. coils would be much better on the track as opposed to air?

but if you want handling there is nothing better than coils

Thanks, I actually sold my 20s and my xenon actually went out riding on 18s LOL on the BW Pkwy. I am not really keen on messing with my m3 aside from bolt-ons so I did not want to roll my fenders hence the sale.

I hear you about your setup. That sounds ok since that is what you want and I guess recognize the risk of going >60mph on a bad road like the BW Pkwy.

BTW - This thread is becoming a favorite of mine. I love these pictures !!!

Regards,
Loay

Put it like this; my car rubs on a daily basis, but only over ridiculous bumps, no little diversions. I have sway bars, full coilovers, control arms, poly control arm bushings, and poly rtabs. My car is slammed AND I haven't had any issues.


Btw thanks for the photo comment.
