Put donut spare tires on your current wheels, mount 50mm spacers, cut the springs and remove the shocks. Cover you headliner in plaid shirts from the salvation army, kick in some of your body panels, and sand the fender lips down so they start rusting like crazy.

Do not jinx yourself again by saying it's perfect.

Only thing I think you can do now is go out and wash it...maybe just gummi pflege it. I know you think this is silly, but if you don't do this, I'm kind of worried you'll be hearing funny sounds in a week!

Oh, also, you should do a few extra readings from Bentley in your shrine this week...can't be too careful.

I thought stance was out now. Have you seen tire painting yet? I just had to try it myself...think it's really a unique look.

Really? When was the last time the cooling system was completely refreshed (water pump, thermostat, hoses, expansion tank, and radiator)? VCG & VANOS seals replaced? RTAB/FCABs.....

Are you absolutely sure you are current on all areas or you are just assuming everything is perfect because you haven't had any issues since getting your car?

As Doug just mentioned....I wouldn't use the word perfect.....you never know what will happen.....right Doug?

You beat me to it.

I have some more.

Stancing begins with your car but ENDS with your wardrobe. After you do all the above, make sure you also put stickers on the rear bumper (must be turned sideways so it looks like you're drifting), and make sure you say hella in every other sentence. Actually fvck that. Say it in every sentence. Make sure your tires are mismatched and your upgrades are of a generic brand. Homemade upgrades=better. older parts=better. used parts=also better. Don't forget to drain your oil and put even older dirtier oil inside your engine. Get a nice patina going. If your belts aren't cracked yet, take a mini-torch and start torching the sh!t out of them. Then when someone says "change those belts", proceed to look at them weird. Last but not least, take a meat hammer (jagged side) to your fenders.



Wardrobe: baggy pants and obnoxious t-shirts (make sure you lean to one side while at meets--if you tip over, major points), big-billed baseball hats (the ones w/ the gold stickers), skater shoes and always have a skateboard in the trunk. (if your trunk has its liners in tact, you fail)

These steps will allow you to get that "stance look"

1. Maintenance
2. Shitty Coilovers (ie: Rokkors/Raceland) that you slam to the ground.
3. Maintenance
4. Camber - Lots of it. You want to be rolling on the inner lip of the wheel. The tire shouldn't touch the ground. At all.
5. ??????????????????
6. "Stance Look" Achieved

Ya I'm sure he means M-sport wheels (style 68), but you already knew that...What's even more funny is that he doesn't even have the staggered style 68 wheels, just the skinny minis.
