Nice meeting everyone.

The dark cloud background looks awesome.

I saw the post on the regional as well. Looks badass. Guys were making some good points regarding how expensive and chaotic everything will be for the first few years though.

Tickets are not out yet. But I do want to go. There are 1-2-3 days passes and I know it will range from from the low hundred up to 1k.

Nice shoot with some good angles. I wish I could have made it, but I might have ruined the photos due to my tire gap. LOL

The lowering perches just lower the vehicle's front end by 0.5 inch.
It keeps everything stock.
I will be getting coilovers/springs/upgraded suspension later on though. I just wanted a quick fix and for $70 its worth it for me.

Went to BMW and asked about getting the Satellite radio built in my car. They told me $1,000.
Any other place that can do it for a lower price?

I know. It cost like 59 dollars to get one of those gps look-a-like screen and have it on the dashboard. But that looks horrible.
Oh well, any radio guy, please info us.

I should look into that... is it easy to install? Or are you looking at hourly shop rates?

We shall find out soon, but it doesn't look too bad.
Keep in mind, that it won't change the overall suspension feeling. If you are looking for firmer or much lower ride, then you should save your money for coilovers/springs/struts setup.
I came from a slammed 350z, and do not have a desire to mess with the suspension too much for now.

For $70, a slightly lower front end seems perfect. I won't touch suspension for a while, but if perches cause no damage like springs or w/e, then I'm down.
