It looks like it dug a hole for itself and is waiting to ambush somebody

Thanks, they look so nice and were so cheap I almost want to get another set for the winter instead of just using my OEMs for the winter.

Yep. Wheels look sweet. I dig em.

There was stuff in the trunk, coilovers, hill, etc. It sits pretty even when it's on a flat surface without crap in the trunk. Probably something to do with the fact that I'm using 98 springs, but even when I was on my old springs the front sat kind of high.

Isn't it amazing how nice wheels can get once you take the dirt off wink . If you clean them enough, yes, they SHOULD get bigger and more stylish...

I can't help but notice that in every drivers side shot of your car, it looks like your door is a different color. Was your can hit once upon a time? The wheels and stance look great. I have a go-kart wheel in my car. I love it.

I've noticed the same thing, Tyler.

Didn't you repaint some things, Matt?

I haven't touched the fenders or door yet, but I think the car was sideswiped or something before we got it. The whole rear quarter panel is a different shade of white than the rest of the car, and the drivers door is slightly different than everything else as well. CarFax didn't show anything, but how much can you really trust it? I'm working on getting the rest of the car painted but time and money are pretty constraining. I have everything I need minus primer and masking materials. Maybe that could be a project for the Riv meet next month lmao

Thanks. On 225/50/18s the car sits ~27 1/8" in the front and ~27 7/8" in the rear. I believe the front springs are DNAs (was told SSCs when I bought them) and the rears are my custom QA1/Koni setup on 12" springs. There is roughly 1 1/2" of space between the chrome trim and the tire, but since the wheels are tucked in a bit I have plenty of clearance. Considering the sneaker won't stay in unless I wedge it at a weird angle I would call the shoe test a pass.

Got my old tires slapped on my autocross rims, just need lugs and they're good to go.

I am debating the m3 style spoiler too. Also where did you get the STB looks different than others I have seen on here.
