Ha thanks L! I try. I'm lucky I have the time, the garage, a second car now, so I can take more time and try to do the little things, at least within reason, I'm not as hardcore as some though. I'm really sharing the little tips and whatnot cause maybe it'll help someone else too

Nailed it with the slant cut. Looks great.

Thanks guys!

Hopefully I can get some better photos after I wash it if we get a rain free weekend soon.

+1. Great attention to detail, well planned, and executed.
Great call on the tips. They look perfect! Thatís one of the reasons I went for the Miltek was the staggered, slant cut.

Thanks man, appreciate it. Went for a drive tonight and looked back at the exhaust, walking from the car, and thought to myself hey that really worked out well!

Just some more feedback on the fcabs. I wouldn't want them for DD use, it's just too much after a while. For the way I use the car, it'll be alright, but it wears on you a bit and takes away some of the refinement that these cars do have, stock. I have other mods that do as well, so it's not all the fcabs' fault by any means. However, I would only expect people that have other susp mods to bother with these (or track cars of course, if not solid)

Loving the whole package though, the zhp rack, hotchkis sway and the fcabs. So responsive. With the toe out I have, due to increasing the neg camber myself and not touching the tie rods, it's almost too sharp, but I'll just go a little more neutral on toe next alignment. It'd be funny to drive a stock m3 at this point, would feel like a lexus lol.
