Thanks.. these look amazing! BC racing might as well buy your shots right now.

Smashing ride height and setup (no pun intended) I'd love this wheel gap!!

I love how your car sits. Is that how you have it daily ? I'm interested in purchasing these or sport kontrol pro. From reading a few reviews of both I'm leaning more on these. I see you're in jersey so I'm guessing the streets are similar to NY, so I'm wondering how you currently have them set up so I can start from there and adjust if I need to.

Great stance Great write up but I am most impressed with the photography. Can you provide more detail on how you did each shot and what enhancements you added after shooting.

Yes there is definitely poke. i would say about an inch past the fenders.
i had to add -3.4 camber in the rear and -2.0 in the front. The BC Coils allowed me to add the camber in the front. so now im good. A good fender roll with a slight pull is needed for sure.

thank you. i personally did not do the photography. im blessed to have friends that can do some awesome camera work and "trick photography." its not just buy a Nikon and snap pics. its having the right equipment and knowing what to do.

-If anyone in the Tri-State Area that would like some nice still shots and Rollers let me know. i can get you hooked up!

Well what are you going for? Low? track? daily driving?
the BC's offer all of this. also this has Dampening control that other entry level coils don't.
