You should improve your stance with a mild drop on sport springs and some spacers. You'll love it.

you should be able to turn the wheel all the way in and access it that way.

I figured I'd post a pic of my interior 'cause I haven't yet...nothing special at all besides an e38 shift knob and a custom phone mount haha (homemade from half of a phone case and a Garmin GPS mount ).

I got a visit from PlamondonXI at work today...came outside to a box of stealth corner bulbs on my car. Never met the man before in my life...wouldn't have known who it was if he hadn't left a note. It's the little things like this that make me love Fanatics.

The List:
1. End links, FCABS
2. FK Coilovers + wheel spacers
3. Projector/Angel Eye Setup
4. M-Tech II Front
