They're my fav as well. It took some work, and I stayed with 17s. I had better luck at that size, and the roads where I am are horrible.

Rblynn78, beautiful car!! I also have a Topaz on gray M3 vert with blue top. I also have the Hamman front lip (painted Topaz) and half painted carbon rear diffuser (both yet to be installed). Also need to install my ACS spoiler. I'll have to post my pics soon.

Thanks all for the compliments, I am happy how she has come together.

She goes down about 1.2 inches next week on some Vogtlands, will send pics when she is done.

Illestminimike, nice car. Just needs a drop badly. Roblynn, I considered getting Vogtlands too but decided on H&R springs. I've been very happy with them. Really need to get my other stuff installed and get some recent pics

Oh yes I need a drop very bad! It hurts to see it that high. Once my valentine one comes I'm going to order a few more things then drop it.

Love the look Frenchy, do you mind sharing the specs on your wheels? I am shopping for those same wheels and want to make sure my offsets are right.
