anyone every use any air tools from their set up? I saw that Bag Riders has a few accessories that will let you do so. Just wondering how good the set up could be, just another reason to convince myself to go air in my 05 instead of stiff a$s coilovers that im getting tired of lol.

I got back to you in the tech thread. All of our employees here have air tool ports and hoses, I mean, why not when you already have an air tank and compressor I had a leaky tire towards the end of last season, having air on board saved me so much headache. I've also helped out friends that had flats and were going to call a towing company or mission to the nearest gas station until I showed them that air suspension isn't just for show

I can second that. Needing air in a tire and having a line in the car is major bonus. Ive used mine on my last car several times. Just be prepared for friends to always call you up when they have a flat.

Thanks guys...I guess i'm just retarded because for some reason i'm still not 100% on board with the lip

ocdpvw - yeah man.. if my car was pulled out of the spot a bit more, you would be see why it needs something down the side.

i dont like it, but it seems my "tastes" for body add-ons are a lot more conservative than the average import forum member. i like pieces that are very subtle without going overboard.

I actually thought this was subtle at first glance, which is why I got it. the pictures on PW's site make it look a lot different. it wasn't until I got it when I was like meh lol

I was actually going to PM you today on FT86 and ask your opinion. Unfortunately for us BRZ owners, we do not have a wide variety of lip choices.

I wanted the STi lip originally but I like paint matched stuff and I don't think that would look very good. Your aero pieces go well with your car because its darker, even though I don't like the replica lip you have for some reason it looks nice on yours. On white that lip looks horrible to me

It's not too terribly much. Well it is for the subaru community. I was running a 205/45 on my 9.5 RS's for a couple years on my last car.

Yikes that's a lot of stretch! I'd be careful running that much stretch if you plan on keeping your tire pressure relatively normal... Just my 2c.

Here's some eye candy from our good friend Jesse Godin - check out his Flickr! http://www.flickr.com/photos/jgodin/

Kevin's fitment is spot on! Photo was taken at WBM '12

Erin's WRX is back in action and looking just as mint as ever!

While part of me is sad that winter is all but over, I'm so excited for show season! Here's a sick shot of Erin drifting about in the snow

Spend $2-3k on air suspension, run $500 wheels and tires.

a 205/40 looks SO SMALL on a GD. I hope you plan to drive low as hell to pull that off.
I'm not ready for show season! I need a few more weeks! lol

Edit: I missed Henry's comment, which I am in agreement with.
Not that it's allll about the money. But if you're gonna do it for style, have stylish wheels too.

DOUBLE SUPER EDIT:
Erin's car is so cool.

I'm tapped out on funds to run legit wheels. I just literally can't run the stock wheels bagged. They're ruining too many parts. So I'm throwing on 527's for now. Dream wheels are rotiform TMB's polished with gold hardware. But I can't afford the $1600 per wheel. For obvious reasons.

I do plan on running slammed all the time, that's just how I am. I hate wheel gap. My drive height right now is tucking almost all the tire in the back and about 1/2 the tire in the front just so I can turn.

Another set of pics of my lip, still trying to decide if I am keeping it. And of course contributing to the thread with my air setup





Just got a call from my brother saying my wheels were delivered this morning The wrx next to mine is going to be on air as well. Have the setup in the house just haven't had the chance to install it yet.
