Pics of KW V1 coilovers, rear spacers, and Cyba tips installed last night...

Work in progress....

Many thanks to Ryan for working late to get everything installed last night at "Clems" garage (Adam, it was great meeting you as well....and I will be sure to replenish the fridge after Ryan drank up all of your pale ale/IPA last night :-)

The first pic is a shot of the car before installing the coilovers...and after the install, no more large gaps in the front fender well (Xdrive)...and noticeably less body roll. Now just waiting for the springs to settle...but already noticed about 1/8 to 1/4 inch of drop after driving home last night.

I am surprised how much deeper the exhaust sounds after installing the Cyba tips....an inexpensive mod and hoping they will also be a little bit easier to keep clean!!!

Next on my list is to install 10mm front spacers (15mm rear spacers installed last night), front-end alignment, and orange reflector delete.

Looks much better! Now you just need some wheels. (You know the modding never stops, right? )

Thanks for the complements. Didn't want to drop it too low, but the xdrive models sit way too high (fender gap reminded me of when I use to own a 4x4 truck and wide fender gap was a good thing! Going to keep the OEM wheels on the car for now...but may change to 19" wheels down the road.
