This is at Blythe Landing. There's another dam in the background. It's an earthen dam with a rip rap apron.

Shots are sick dude, you're car is coming along great! If you do plan on getting different coilovers, I got a set of Form and Function that should be coming in next week, so if you're interested I can let you know how they are

Yeah, let me know about them. I'm really not even sure if I'm going to do a drop. I have a couple of sets of Macht Schnell spacers waiting to be installed so I'm going to run those until I figure out what I want to do.

In the meantime, here's a Photoshop of it dumped...

Clean, classy, and subtle while still maintaining an aggressive edge. Nicely done, I like the black roof and the cf splitters.

The black roof, black mirrors, light tint blends well with the theme. A cf rear bumper insert would look great too.
I do agree that a mild drop would add to its appeal. Overall, well done.

I'm a step ahead of you there. I have a Fiber-Design ACS Rep CF diffuser set up for quad tips. However, it's just sitting in the box right now up in the attic. Quad tip exhaust is coming soon so it will be going on then.

As far as I know, there were only 5 of them made for quads. Here's a link showing the single side version. Post #15 shows the unpainted CF one.

I agree, that's why I didn't pay that price for them, even though they are new. There's no difference between spending that much money for a set of splitters and buying cheaper ones, or even a lip, and having them molded to the bumper.

Too bad there haven't been any aftermarket reps like with the CS splitters. My driving style has definitely changed since I installed them. I stay back much farther behind cars to minimize rock damage and I'm very careful when transitioning on and off inclines. They scrap every so often but no where near daily. Keep in mind, I'm not lowered.

I'll see what I have so far. It was just done a couple of weeks ago and the weather has been bad every weekend since then so I don't have too many pics.



Thanks for the comments.
