congrats! also car looks shmick!

i'd be guessing the 9kg rear springs are abit soft, which will contribute to you bottoming out.

Congrats Rich!

I have the same problem, rears rubbing on my 275 PSS's with 10mm spacers on dips. Rears are rolled but could be rolled more. I haven't messed with my camber though. I plan on doing a suspension overhaul and addressing it then. It pains me to see my side walls scuffed but I won't switch to 7mm spacers and I have a pair

Thanks! I do plan on swapping out the suspension down the road, but as of right now I'm good with the SGT coilovers, no real complaints and there are other things I'd like to prioritize first.

Thanks fellas

I did want to have my fenders rolled a little flatter before this weekend (leaving for my honeymoon Sunday), but it just it doesn't seem like I'm going to have a chance to. It'll have to wait until I get back late August

I'll look through some of my photos when I get home to see if I have any. If not, I'll snap a couple this weekend

Here are a couple from when I did the armrest delete and euro tray. Haven't swapped out the steering wheel trim yet, holding off on that until I get the airbag recall done at the dealership... I don't want them scratching up my new trim

Actually, I'm almost considering swapping in all of my old interior trim before bringing it in just in case

Not much to update for now unfortunately... Instead of enjoying my car, my weekends have been spent going to open houses. That's the next big purchase I'm hoping to make happen by this winter.
