My always living opinion still stands. If a part doesn't aid in the cleaning up of the body lines than the part should not be there. GTR hoods do not belong on the majority of cards. Do not even get me started on wide bodies. I hate them all and don't understand why they exist on street cars. CSL trunks should always be painted. CSL lips and CSL diffusors are perfectly fine with me since they were offered as OEM parts. All the rest like side skirts and what not to me just make it worse.

I'm running 235/35/19 on 10" rears with offset of et20 and 215/35/19 on 9" upfront again with et20.

How much am I gonna have to pull the rears?

How much of a drop could I archive with out too much rubbing?

Pics of test for rears only

Yup, I built that car from top to bottom. the bumper and hood were my first try at painting. That picture was from a few months after I sold it however, the new owner didnt do anything except paint the wheels white

haha yeah, i'm not about accessories at all. those things piss the crap out of me. i would take my roof rack off but i actually use it a lot when i ride my bike. i also would have a hard time storing it and get lazy to reinstall it.



Sorry, the lighting was horrible. Didn't have much options because I kept getting kicked out. It's hard to take good pictures without "trespassing".

I got 750 pound springs in the rear now, handles like a beauty. Still tuning the height, so don't mind the gap. Going to upgrade the springs in the front and get camber plates.

Oh. Read the other post. GTR hood and GTR sideskirts are not my thing. Neither are extremely colorful accents that exist for no other reason than to add attention. Your cars are subtle, and as far as I remember, you stay pretty close to the OEM stuff. Which is a win to me.

The "show car" stuff has never appealed to me.

I have a very very short wheel attention span, I had the 7 series wheels on for less than 3 weeks before I sold them.

I need to fund a wheel build as well, a set of bbs rsII's that I scored for 100 dollars haha
