Wow, your car looks immaculate
I wish mine looked as good as that....better get some work done on it

How do you find the APs? I'm thinking of getting some myself as the cheap rubbish that's on at the moment are terrible.

For an entry level set of coil overs, they have transformed the handling which is felt the moment you accelerate with next to no body roll (based on my driving style) I was running standard shocks with Eibach springs previously.

It is for me, although it is of course harsher than the stock setup, but not a distraction.

Nice Car and a Life Time Car just like mine , It was hard not to mod mine but I resisted , It will be 10 years old in Jan 2015 and still only 7,500 miles on it , I have said before good cars are hard to find and you look as if you found yours ,

Cheers, RL.
