Welcome! Looks like you've gotten a great start!
Any reason why you uninstalled the TOP and throttle pipe?

Nick_MKVI 02-08-2015 09:34 PM

Oops. I should've clerified. "Uninstalled" means I have the parts, but haven't installed them yet.

Dr Dad 02-08-2015 09:37 PM

Ahh okay :w00t: I'll be interested to see how you like them! I'm probably going to invest in a TOP

Car looks good, I really like the tips on the EJ exhaust. They fill the valence nicely.

Tkulhanc134 05-04-2015 02:57 PM

Car looks good, i think this is the highest ride height i've seen with 3SDM wheels, I always thought it would look like crap, but i was wrong. Also you need led tails to compliment it.

Nick_MKVI 05-04-2015 03:01 PM

Thanks! This is actually the lowest BC Racing coils will go. I am sure they will settle a little more, but I didn't want slammed. I drive the car every day and I need function. I have a little rubbing in the front. Going to do the fender screw mod first and if that doesn't resolve it I'll have the fenders rolled.

LED tails are on the list. Debating between Ed's or OnePerfectDose. Unsure which at this time.

Dr Dad 05-05-2015 01:48 AM

I've got Dose's and I have no complaints! He's a great guy with a great price
