Awesome! Installation is easy. Took me less than an hour to wire it all up! It'll look good

Got it from DDM tuning. Pretty cheap, but looks great! I know khoalty also sells a good kit.

Haven't updated in a while... been really busy. But decided to post something.

One thing I forgot to add was my tint. 22% all around. So far haven't had any troubles with cops, but we'll see





The Koni's are going in next weekend. Any recommendations on springs to match?

Have more planned for the summer (including new wheel setup)

Found an INSANE deal on this basically brand new SMG steering wheel. Got it for such a steal... The leather is still matte and is tri-stitched! Much better than my other wheel.



My old wheel is now for sale if anyone is interested!

Haha well as long as I know you're happy... thats much better than money

Yeah it is! I was shocked at how mint it was. Took it off a wrecked 2002 M3. It was a brand new wheel since the M3 was a 6-speed but had an smg wheel (which doesn't make much sense, haha).

Happiness is what counts unless you want me to pay you in trident layers!

A local auto dismantler posted it on craigslist. I thought it would be badly damaged since they were selling it pretty cheap. But oh was I wrong. haha. As soon as I saw the pics, I picked it up!

Hey OP the car looks great! I am wondering though, I know you are thinking about a mild drop, the car looks like a good height to me but Im wondering if it is stock suspension? or possibly sport suspension? Good work! I love the VB3's

Nice progress!

Go with Eibach Pro-Kit springs. They ride well, and won't beat the car up on speed bumps and low driveways.
