Wow, that's bummer, especially since this is your 3rd F01?

But have fun picking something new, not another F01 and I just am not feeling the GX460.

If you don't need a family car for the room,...

Wow, pretty crazy. Awesome to see 3 nicely modded 7s like that together. It would blow my mind if I saw that around Chicago.

I did not know they had OEM mud flaps. I think I have to give this a try, the 20" 303 are throwing spray up the side of the car almost to the bottom of the windows.

Get power from the fusebox with a tap a fuse and run the power inside the A pillar, across the top of the windscreen. I found it easier than even the overhead console.

Where did you get the mudflaps for the F01? The car kicks up quite a bit onto the body.

I don't think I have ever seen pics of the completed mods on your car?

My 303s bend pretty easily, so I am thinking about a stronger forged 20" wheel, but seems to be a lot of shady wheel outfits out there.

Does anyone know about BC Forged?

I think that might work, its about 3-4% larger wheel diameter, 9 mm less clearance on the suspension side, 3 mm less on the outside. Probably would not need spacers.

I think there maybe some typos in the tire sizes. My stock staggered are front 245/40/20 and rear 275/35/20.

It's not good that the car won't push start.
