[56k maybe] pics of the whip. BORED!









kind of old pics, never posted them before so i thought i would show you guys. i wanna get a lip kit on there, some fatter tires too so i can raise her up a bit. its a challenge to get off of steep speedbumps, my frame bottoms out all the time rofl. my front hooks are about 3 inches off the ground. 205/40/16 is too skinny.

ANYWAYS... ENJOY!

I think you mean, "why is your front lower than the rear?"

Looks good. I like it, but a lip kit would definately set it off even more.

ahahah... thanks for all the comments guys. well duh the turbo is under the hood. ... i finnaly got my emanage up and running! its not tuned though i dont know **** about emanage.

yes those are rotas: i am pretty sure they are sports bronze lol.

my suspension set up is on ebay coilovers, DONT BUY THESE. they suck, the ride is terrible and i think these are the culprit for my bent frame. i love how low it goes though, looks sick when its dumped like that. lol

oh yeah i took off my grill, it looks pretty mean imo running the no grill, i saw another member on the site do no grill so i tried it out. lol

if i put a lip kit on it i will have to raise the car up and get fatter tires, the front lip would kiss itself bye bye if a little rock comes by. and for all you vegas folks you know there are tons of rocks to go around lol.

Looks clean bro. Nice drop too. Like how the back is a little bit higher(mine is like that, 'cause when you drive it evens out). CF hood and front lip would look damn sexy. Thinking about getting those also, but debating on hood...people like to jack in my hood.

Yeah, a carbon lip/hood/trunk would look amazing, albeit a tad expensive.

I like how your mirrors are the same color as your car. Did they come like that? Mine didn't and I was wondering how I could do that.

Yeah, most trim levels come with that. Are those wheels photoshopped on in your signature? I'm thinking yes.

Yo caquinde!...u n me have the same car....well actually, had, lol...back when u had GT3s at least, remember...but these new rims youve got look very very nice...I think u and me think the same cuz we both had GT3s at one point and we both want lip kits...but next year in the spring when I get my lip kit and a few other things, we'll definately be different cars...but the two best lookin sedans on 7thgen, hehe...

^^ lol why what rims you got now? i thought the gt3s looked too small on the sedans for some reason as did a lot of other people did too, so i went for the 16 circuit 8's. i love my rims they so sexy ..... well yeah man i cant wait till we get our lip kits then maybe we can have a poll of whose vic looks better ahahah. i remember there was a thread of white vs black vics. maybe we could do our color vics .... i was looking to do the front licsense plate removal also so that the stupid box in the front bumpers wont be there anymore, that would look hella hot but i dont know if im up for such a task. might screw it up and be rollin the streets with a big gaping hole in my bumper. lol

Hehe, yea man, im up for a little poll between our cars when we get things done on it...but yea, I also thought about your bumper idea too but even tho its a great idea, i wouldnt do it just cuz its too much work and i too fear a crappy outcome, lol. Newayz, I still have my GT3's but you have the 15s so thats prolly why they looked small for you...mine are 16s on 205/50/16 tires so they look like a perfect fit on my car...and once again, your wheels u got right now make me real jealous, lol cuz they really look nice...amazing what one inch does too eh, lol...oh, if you wanna clean up ur suspension, you should consider Neuspeed Race springs cuz thats what I have and im just about as low as you are....on just spring alone!...plus their not too expensive either...

Well, its not like seriously low but im very satisfied with my drop especially since its just springs and not coilovers...its at the right height where I barely make it over speedbumps, lol...plus I think it'll leave me perfect clearance for when I get my lip kit....but yea, Neuspeed Race springs are (F-2.25"/R-2.0"). It's hard to find good springs that drop below 2 inches but these work real good cuz before I bought these, I wasnt a fan of lowering springs at all...I was one of those people that wanted coilovers only but the money didnt agree with my needs, lol....newayz, here's some pics of how my ride looks now (even tho these pics are kinda old)...

nice whip. man lol.. look at your ride hieght and my ride height, there is a big difference. my goal is to be sort of like that raised up a tad and a somewhat smooth ride. i dont know if that is possible though because everyone tells me that my car is too low already. a few times i almost got stuck on some speed bumps...lol hooray for almost no ground clearance
