Before and After Pics of my Ride....

What's up folks? Had some fun this weekend with the addition of the following modifications:
1) H&R Sport Springs (Installed @ Creative Autoworks)
2) ACS Replica Rear Roof Spoiler (Purchased Painted from Ebay)
3) Rogue Engineering 15MM Spacers for Rear Wheels (Creative Autoworks)

Took some pictures to compare before and after.
I previously was under the impression that with OEM sport suspension, H&R Sport Springs would not offer any significant lowering. Maybe it is me, but I do see the difference... Nothing drastic, but enough to close in on the gap between the tires and the wheel well (see close up of picture #2).

Let me know what you guys think.

Before / After #1 (Click on Image 3X's for best resolution/size)


Before / After #2 (Click on Image 3X's for best resolution/size)


Apart from that, my mods are limited to: 35% Tints, ASA AR1 18" Wheels, Hardwired Escort Radar/Laser Detector.

Cheers.

Louie A.

^ I like OEM tails on lighter-colored E90s

blacklines look best on darker-colored E90s
