I also have a shark fin I repainted to match but just had my roof overlaid yesterday so I'm waiting til the vinyl completely cures before reattaching it. This is my first car with mods so I hope I'm doing it tastefully.

Apologies in advance, haven't had the car washed since I bought it in January.

Oh snap, sedan peeps steppin' there game up. Darth and Julie I'm diggin' both of your wheel setups, they look good. Now you guys need throw some Eibach's or H&R's on there and drop that ish! That will really set it off...

On their respective websites, Eibach states a 1.2" drop in the front and a 1.0" in the rear and H&R states a 1.3" drop in the front and a 1.2" in the rear. I haven't actually heard of anyone that has used the H&R springs yet but I imagine they're almost identical in drop and performance as Eibach. I would just go with whatever better deal you could get.

Looks pretty clean for not having been washed since you got it in January. Nice ride.

Thanks! It's cause the attachments don't show the 8MP HD dirty goodness that is on the sideskirt area of the car. And my windows. Oh my, my windows... I got lazy and wiped them down with Armor All wipes and it left those nasty soapy marks all over them.

I want to drop too Subtle but I can't justify the total costs vs 1 inch. And I already scraped the bottom front on a parking block so I'm kind of scared of going lower :(. Damn Plano and your high ass curbs. Maybe one day when the cost-benefit ratio changes or I have obscene amounts of money to throw around.

Well, you definitely can't tell how dirty it is in pictures. Part of the nice thing about having a white car as well.

As for lowering your car, it's definitely worth it in my opinion. It just sets it off. I lowered mine with the Eibachs and I'm glad I did. I can't stand the wheel gap. An inch doesn't seem like much but it is noticeable (that's what she said...haha). Just save up some cash and in no time you'll have enough to get it done. Good luck.
