How did you do the emblem black? That looks very nice.

Good specs for your car, should be a great fitment. Post up pics when they are on it, they look great.

I think your suspension is broken... In multiple places.

This. I don't drive very low daily. My ride height is a decent coilover drop. In fact, when the car is layed out it is for looks. However, do not be fooled as the car will handle extremely well. My car was the first GR on the new Air Lift performance kit. Air Lift took my car for a few weeks and built the suspension off my car.



Here is some more about Air Lift.

As are all color choices. I really liked DGM and LRP. It seems that DGM is the most popular after RBP and LRP is probably the biggest police magnet of all.

I will post pics when I test fit them on the car. I'm still on stock suspension so it might look a little weird. Planning on getting coilovers in the spring.

I am chill, was just joking. I don't really believe your suspension is broken

While extremely low is not my thing, the bags are actually really cool. Inflated those look extremely functional, lowered it looks painful. Just something different, to each his own right?

No hard feelings here. I know this suspension isn't for everyone. In the end the car is built for me and what I like. I daily drive the car and have put nearly 20K on the car in less than a year. Air ride has been on since around 4K miles and I've loved every mile of it. For my needs and wants the kit is perfect. I've tracked it, showed it, and obviously daily dive it. In the end, to each their own.

Xtremes... Theyre an excellent addition.





Black emblems are a few hours of quick work when I did mine. Summary: Remove, seperate housing, sand blue away, sand smooth and compound, paint color, dry, replace. Do not touch the chrome stars or youll be upset.

They look great and really go with your color theme. I doubt it but did you lower the car any more? Just looks lower than the last time I drooled over it

Not any lower. The car is considerably low compared to stock, but in the sweet spot of the T2s range. I can functionally squeeze out another .75". That extra bit would be great aesthetically.
