Re: First Look - Aston Martin DB9 BBK Retrofit Review

Well, not offset, but barrel-wise. If 17s don't fit with 996 calipers, I don't know how it would with these.

Re: Turner's new monoball FCABs

I wouldn't use the TMS supplied lollipops or housings are they're, based on feedback so far, not OE - they're probably the cheaper aftermarket MTCs.

That wouldn't be your problem though - sounds...

Re: The Official Bring a Trailer (BaT) Listing Thread - E46 M3

$26k seems fair. Low mileage and LSB, but an '01, some TLC is needed. Good starting point if LSB is the "one" for you :thumbsup:

Re: Camber Adjustment Rear

Re: Camber Adjustment Rear

There is no *right* answer really, so you wouldn't have found that while searching, but what you could glean is that more negative camber is better, up to a point. With stock hardware, you wouldn't...

Re: Need help with smog in CA

Re: Anyone have kw v2 Coils, thoughts?

I'd only get the PSSs for their dampers, and run linear springs. If you're not going to do that, KW is good.

Toanster did dyno tests many moons ago. You'll get a "real" (not dyno variance) HP maybe 2 at 7900 rpm, whoopie!
