My USDM SI dropped on Volks...finally....

Well, I finally got dropped. Megan coils and SPC camber kit installed with a nice tuck of the wheel and my bronze TEs are now mounted. O and new navi installed. :thumb:
Dirty as ****.....




All clean...well kinda.....







New navi....


Outside Target....chyea....



Rear...tucked...

Front...tucked...

Not on, just came out that way...











My crazy gf.....

Enjoy!

I think I need to get my camber a little adjusted on the rear, but then I might have to raise the whip a little.

I'm just left thinking what kind of accident would've resulted in that poor girl losing BOTH her ring fingers???

Seriously though, there's some nice pics there, and inspiration for any Hybrid owners here in the EU (virtually same body shape).....

I love the car, love the rims, VOLK is instant kudos IMO...

But i think larger rim and lower profile tyre would look better.

What size are those rims and tyres?

They look like 17s and the tyres look like 205 maybe 215/50/17...



The bigger profile on the smaller rim does fill out the arches nicely though...

They are actually 225/45/17 Nitto Neo Gens. I had 18" gunmetal TEs with a 40 series for my winter wheels and I really don't like that low of a profile. Just not enough tire for my taste. I don't know why they look so fat, its the same profile as the stock tires.

It is Habanero. Rallye Red is just too plain for me.

They are racing spec coilovers and I got them for $840 shipped from a local vendor on another forum. Very, very nice for the price and 32 levels of dampening adjustment. They are gonna be great for this upcoming season of auto x.
