The car looks great and so clean, those are dinan/fiske wheels am i right? what exhaust system are you running?

Speaking of that what is the lightest exhaust system out there, nothing loud as mine is a DD but close to OE sound but just light in weight...!!

yes.. dinan fikses. those actaully give you 5 points (half of the requirement to get the badge)

my exhaust is UUC system U. it's pretty loud, very light, might get annoying in a DD.

close to OE sound w/o noise is a tough order. Ireland engineering would be good for you.

Looks great Ben. Sig pic is sweet! My only peeve is the yellow lenses and black kidneys - I think the chrome ones would compliment the polished lips on the wheels better but that's just IMO. Once you install the camber plates it should give the car a nice overall stance. If it's not enough, Bavauto or BMP used to sell some custom spring seats that would lower the front more.

I like the Dinan badge. It gives the car a sense of legitimacy. Did you have a faded ///M badge before? I just replaced mine today, 100x better!

Oh, and black lugs FTMFW.

i have Dinan fixed camber plates that i can install... you'll have to explain how they would lower the car. i'm not understanding that.

Let me clarify - STOCK kidneys. Not the chrome slatted ebay kind..

The stack height on most camber plates (especially Vorshlag) is much shorter. Not sure if the Dinan's will, but it means the distance from the top of the spring to the bottom of the strut tower will be less, effectively lowering the CAR without changing the suspension. Think of a frame drop on a truck...

Haha, well I couldn't tell!

Nice touch. I'm pretty much set on Fikse's now when the mod budget allows :\
Curious: Do you like them enough to part with your LTW's?

the dinan ones work with the stock upper mounts.. not like vorshlags etc.

enough to part with the stamped LTWs.. i sold those. i sold the contours as well so i just have the fikses and the polished LTWs. since i want 2 sets of wheels, those are the 2 sets i chose.
