Ordered:
- Proto-type MFEST Coilovers
- Meisterschaft GT2 Race Exhaust courtesy of GT Haus

Sorry for the long wait everyone...Finally picked up the car on Friday...got the wheels reassembled with a 4.5" lip downsized from a 5" lip. Meisterschaft GT2 exhaust was installed Friday morning...no joke, sounds like a Ferrari


Here are some iPhone pics before a complete write up and photoshoot

Arrival of the Meisterchaft GT2 exhaust last monday. Excellent craftsmanship and the customer service was nothing short of extraordinary. The section 3 piece fit like a glove once installed couldn't wait to let it RIP!!!




Once installed...
