What kind of drop from stock? Any camber plates or other things to get the265's to fit in front?

TCKline DA Shocks
Swift Linear Springs (400/800)
GroundControl Race Camber Plates
Swift thrust bearings

CCW LM20
18x9
18x10

My car currently has -2.3 degrees of camber. To clear the front on the strut side you'll need atleast a +29 front offset if not lower. Im on linear springs so for those with progressive springs (probably the majority), you'll need to go with a even lower offset to clear. This of course is all dependent on how low your drop is since if you're dumped you may clear on the strut side but you wont clear your fender.

Once i get the car realigned for more camber (looking for around -2.8 up front) i'm probably gonna throw a 3mm spacer up front as right now i cant make u-turns under compression. Not really a big problem since this situation will probably never happen on the track, but its just nice for daily driveability.

Oh and im not sure how much lower then stock i am, the car is corner balanced to my weight. If i had to eyeball it, i'd say i have a 1.5 finger gap on the front driver side and a 1 finger gap on the passenger side.

I actually just removed the air ducts on my car and sold it to another member. Let me ask him if he can take some more pictures once he gets it installed.

Love what you've done with it!

Was wondering about the 335is ducts, I'm thinking about doing the same, as I need to replace my bumper anyway. Any chance you could snap some close ups of the ducts? I'd like to see how well they mate with the bumper opening without using vents before I decide to do it myself.

Also, in your opinion, would it be dumb to do the 335is ducts if you don't have the PPK, since the drivers side ducts will lead to nowhere?

Unfortunately i already removed the ducts and sold it to a member on the forum. If you dont use the mesh like i did, you will have a slight gap between the bumper and the ducting. Its nothing major, but a deal breaker nonetheless for some.

Its really up to you if you want to use the drivers side duct. Personally i would cut a hole in the fender liner where the duct leads to and let air pass through instead of having an enormous amount of air leading there pushing the lining against the tire.

Looks really good. Any difference in the steering feel with the 265 tires?

Also, my seats came in a while ago and i just put them in this weekend. No installed pics yet as im too lazy, but here they are.

Huge thanks to my buddy 'codebynight', for coding out the airbag light for me. Can't even begin to express how happy i am to have the restraint system malfunction error and blown penis icon gone. If anyone local needs any coding done, he's your man!

PS. For anyone going with aftermarket seats, save yourself the time and hassle and just go with Recaro sliders/hardware. Due to the ball mount style slider VAC uses, the seats have a bunch of play.

Full leather white stitching pole position.

Thanks for the info... I'm ordering my parts today, probably just go with the normal M Sport stuff.

Steering is noticeably stiffer and requires a bit more effort, but turn in feels amazing. Its very crisp and the amount of front end bite now is just awesome. I can't wait to take the new setup out to the track.
