Goodies coming in soon

I've ordered coilovers and tires for my 7. I went with d2 racing coilovers because I got super deal on them. Wish I could the kw's but that would have been way out my budget. Im also bypassing the self leveling on my car so I can get that stance i want. Plugging off the air lines and MOST BUS jumper is how I plan on doing that. Most bus jumper is for my edc so it throws no codes. Far as tires I have currently on my 22x10.5 wheels is 295/25/22s but want for of a wider stance and decided the best way to do this is 305/25/22s tires which is going to be sick All my product should be here in the next 2 weeks so I post pics then. Oh yea I already added a cold air intake and exhaust and it sounds great. After all the other things are done Im sending my computer off for the secondary air flow crap to be bypass and a tune by OE tuning. Can't wait so stay tune

Nice list of mods and always keeping it original.

Looking forward to pics and a video of that exhaust.

That is some slow a$$ shipping!

But I'm excited to see it all put together man. Let me know how the OE tune goes. I've heard good things about them.

That looks really good brother. Love the way the black roof and tint looks with the white.

Only thing I would do different is black out the grill, window trim, and roof trim and color match the bumper chrome. That's just personal preference though. Looks great either way.

Really looking forward to some finished pictures. Want to see the front with the new AEs as well.

The grill is blacked out and yes I agree all the chrome needs to go. Thanks for the positive comments sir.

Great! 36 way adjustable. Once you tune it to your liking its not much different from stock to me.
