Well as requested, I took the car out today since it was Semi nice outside and took some pics on a Salt stained parking lot. The lot is uneven in some places but I think the pics came out fine. I love the new stance and the ride is incredible.

And we're off to the races.......

I drilled little holes on the strut caps so I can easily pop on the Koni adjuster knob and adjust on Demand!







And now for the bonus. My new custom LSD just came in. Will have it in soon. If the weather cooperates it should be in sooner then later. I dont like workingin the shop on cold days regardless of heat.

Stance is on point. Your car is looking great, especially whats under the hood!
Thanks! :thumbup:

Nice strut. Oh, and cool license plate number. Must be confusing for the cops!
Yep that was the idea. But since all the cops in the surrounding towns have seen the car, it sticks out but it is indeed confusing.

Your car has come a long way since 2 yrs ago. The drop looks good. I notice the front drop is not as

low as H&R's which minimizes the rake. Looking good.

Thanks Andy!

How much was the suspension? Looks good.
With all the extra parts I had to buy (bump stops, mounts etc) It came out close to 1200.

Thanks! :thumbup: I was real worried that I might have too much of a rake. I lucked out. Seems like DInan does use different springs. Many have said the springs are just painted Eibachs.

Do you have the stock bumper for the 01-03? If so I have the mounting bracket for it. Its brand new and primed. I had bought it right before I installed the oem m5 bumpers.

Sigh! The car looks really really good!:thumbup:
Thanks!

It's about time!

Love it!

The stance looks sooooo OEM!
I really thought the Eibachs would have dropped the front more.
However, the stance looks very flat.

Looks so damn good!
I especially love the Dinan strut bar!
One of THE best looking and functional strut bars to get, IMO.

You are going to flip after the diff gets installed...
LOL!

Thanks Jason! Im still waiting on the diff fluid and the axle seals. Might as well replace them while doing the job. Do it once and do it right!

Car looks really great! Loving the stance.

I'm drooling over the limited slip, too!

Where did you source the strut bar? Noticable difference? Or more for eye candy?

If you are into handling, I HIGHLY recommend the Eibach sway bar kit - or maybe you already have it - I don't recall.

OMG!! NICE RIDE!!! Dude, your car looks freaking amazing. I love the front end and that intercooler.

Oh, and your license plate must MIND F*** everyone that looks at it
thanks man!

I just put the bar on so I cant really tell. I personally think its eye candy and thats about it. I might change the tune once I put her in the twisties.

I have an M5 sway bar waiting to go on. I was thinking about the eibach kit but thats way down the line. I want to sport the m5 sway first.
