Proper tuning!
Looks great, but you need to lower the rear suspension!

Thanks Jon! I was thinking the same thing after my stepson finished. Now all I have to do is get an alignment and I should be set

My Ride: ///M3 & 330i ZHP
This upcoming weekend is supposed to be nice so I will be doing some much needed spring detailing on my ZHP and then I will be taking some pics with my DSLR showing higher quality pics of my new ride height. With every mod and maintenance upgrade, I'm getting my ZHP right where I want it....

This year I will be looking to add a limited slip diff and ESS T2 to my ride. Should take this already well modded car to another level I'm thinking...

There's still more to do such as refreshing my front control arms, FCAB/RTABs, GUIBO/Centerline Bearing, rear wheel bearings, steering wheel GUIBO.....possibly more...
