hey Will, which Koni yellow do you have? the koni yellow i have doesn't have "clicks" or number, it's only a dial with a knob say "<-firmer, softer->" sort of like that.

mine setting is 40% firm in the front, 50% firm in the rear.

Adam, I've actually heard of Newman before. I'll be staying in both Lincoln and Turlock. Ill also be in Modesto a lot too. Maybe we can hook up sometime. Here or there.

Ronn, I recognize that photo spot. There's a optometry office I've been to there.

Will, good luck on the suspension. Just remember it will take a couple weeks to settle and then you'll need an alignment. I found a coupon for firestone and got lifetime alignment for around $100 iirc.

Guess I need to start modding my exterior if you guys are doing photo shoots. No more middle aged woman looking 3er with 500 hp. I'm thinking m3 rep front and m tech on sides and rear.

Yup that is a great look, same thing I am doing, my mtech rear should be getting delivered today from Tisher. And I'll be dropping it off at the shop tomorrow, then I will either get a tune (jb4 or procede) or the m3 rep front and mtech sides next month. still cant decide on which I want to do first hehehe.

Hmmm that may work, I'm shooting a short film during the afternoon, I just don't know when we will wrap it up. What time were you thinking? I do not have a camera slider atm but I do have a glidecam

And thanks! Much appreciated. The 430 is a great car but when put next to the 458, fxx, 599 it seems more like a civic The FXX is just ridiculous anyways. The 430's were running really great lap times though.

Do you ever get any flack from the cops? How dark does it look from the outside on a normal sunny day? I know mine will look darker with my interior being black. So I may need to go a shade lighter. Don't know yet.

Any info helps. Thanks.

I got it done back when I lived in Denver, so don't know a good place here. I never get bothered by the cops, it really doesn't look too dark on a sunny day.

Yea go to Jeff Howerton for a better kit at half the price. Oh and he's a local dude here to help....not sell.

I also have the ability to run any tune with my Aquamist....with shiv's kit you are stuck using a procede (not that it's a bad thing).

Eric, are you saying Jeff quoted you $1100 as well? Was that installed? With tank? I'm sure we can install it ourselves and use the ww tank.

I'm sure Jeff is getting smart and pricing closely to Shiv's. Eric, are you sure that was for a HSF-3 with no tank? That $1100 seems way too high as HSF-3 kits he sales are about $700.

yea Will, that's the HSF-3 kit we are talking about, and that's the price without the tank and without installation. cuz i was telling Jeff if using the existing washer tank will work, i'll go with that route cuz its more stealth and nothing need to route to the trunk.
