You need to shim the fenders a little bit and align them to the hood. The gap won't be even all the way down the fender.

Yeah, the new 4G LTE is really, really fast... I just wish AT&T would allow me to tether without paying $240 a year for 5GB.

That's always harder to take cause it sucks way more to lose something than to never have it. Just ask Plums about love #goingtodiealone

And of course, Clubsports and their racing coilovers are very good. I can say with almost complete certainty that all KW and ST coilovers are made in Germany.

I thought it was funny how you grouped Bilstein, H&R, & Moton into the same category. Bilstein and H&R are good, but nowhere near the level of Moton. Actually, since Moton has been bought out, I think their quality has gone down a bit, but the original Moton people have started a new company that is very promising (MCS). Besides MCS, JRZ, AST, Ohlins and TC Kline are what I would consider to be top quality. I would put Bilstein and H&R closer to KW than the top companies.
