Bad idea
under cover will be collected sand and water, and they damage the finish

Well, I havent posted here in a while.

Nothing really new been going on here but I did have a change of heart.

I decided to keep the car instead of selling it.

Finally installed H&R Race Springs and all I can say is, Wow! Factory Like Feel but alot less body roll, stiffer through turns.. Just great. I like them So far.

Will post pics soon.

Decided I want to track the car so..

New list of things to get before The END of June.
-Brembo Blank Front Rotors
-EBC Yellow Pads
-M3 Strut Bar
-Find where I have an Oil Leak
-Respray Calipers back to black.

Always loved imola red

1. Please do not plastic dip the bottom of your bumper. As one other user here said, not worth it and will collect dirt and grime and will evidently ruin the paint which seems to be really well kept.
2. Glad you're enjoying the H&R Race springs but then you said..."Decided I want to track the car so.." My response to this is if you truly want to to track the car, or have a "track oriented" car...I would buy a set of linear coilovers in which you can dictate to the company the spring rate specific for your driving style. MUCH more cost efficient, will give you even less body roll coupled with sway bars and an overall much better feel. Brands such as AST, TCKline, BC Racing are just a few. Just my $0.02

Enjoy the car though man, do what you want ofc, just a friendly tip
