MTech question.

The MTech II front bumper seems to sit a little lower than the m3 bumper. Does it sit lower in reality or does it just seem like it?

Same question for the sideskirts. I'm thinking about changing to MTech II all around and I'm curious.

Well honestly they aren't junky, I like them, they just do low enough in the front. Other then that, ride quality and stability is ok. Not as good as it could be, but pretty decent. I'm happy with them, just not the front height...

Whenever I find some new wheels to get. I'm trying to decide if I'm gonna save up and wait to get some CCW classics or if I want style 5s. Style 5s would be much cheaper, but I can get the CCWs built to the exact specs I want, which will probably be 18x9.5 +25 all around.

In that pic it does look lower, didnt change anything up though. I really cant go any lower with these wheels, they are spaced out way to much.
