Find Your Twin Thread

Thought of this idea to see who has the closest matching cars. The idea is to post up a picture or two (not too many) of you car and others will scroll through and see if they have an identical car, or close to it. I know it will be difficult with the different types of mods available, but I think it has potential.

If you do think your car is vey similar to another go ahead and quote the picture of their car along with a picture of yours.


Lets see what we can do here.

It's nice to see my wheels actually made it half way around the world in one piece. I helped bring this car to where it is actually is as he was already parting out and stock again until I posted my wheels for sale. It was a lengthy process but he got them. My car used to look like this and now is alot different

First of all, Nick you could of asked before posting the pic.. the rear has been jacked up ~25mm and you know it! Been telling you for how long it needs to be dropped.

I don't mean to be a dick, especially considering I did buy your wheels. But I need to correct you on a few things.

Firstly you got me neither the coils nor the lip. You just told me to contact Flushstance and get the 'extreme drop.' The lip was a lengthy ordeal with LTMW who didn't reply my emails for weeks so I even had to make time to call them internationally to seek a response. It took over a month to get a response from LTMW and finally get the lip shipped. Correct me if I am wrong, but you actually had nothing to do with getting me the lip (or the coils really).

In terms of the fitment, I know it isn't right which is why I haven't had a photoshoot yet or posted up in the general photo section. As I have told you the rear axle of my car seems to be offset quite significantly which is being exaggerated by running wide wheels. The problem is that my drivers side (ie passenger side for LHD cars most of you) sits further out compared to my passenger side.




As you might be able to see the car was sitting about half way down the SPT logo but rubbed constantly while driving. This photo above is when it was raised 10mm but it still sat firmly pressed against the tyre. The other side of the car was fine only this side didn't work. Hence I just decided to jack up the rrear of the car another 10-15mm compared to this picture so I could at least drive it around even if it does have stupid looking rake. Ask anyone I know.. I haven't been taking the E90 out much at all because I think it looks stupid as it sits in the photo nick posted. The car has barely done 150kms since I got back from overseas a couple of months ago.




This is how the car first sat before the front was lowered more. To me (maybe not to you) the rear height there is ok, but obviously front needed to be dropped much more. This pic is prior to my first alignment which I thought would help get things set up - at this point the rears worked 100% not bullshitting you one bit. But after the alignment it just hasn't been working... as I have said.



In this pic you can see that the passenger side rear fits fine, however the drivers side sat firmly on the tyre as posted further above. (Front not yet dropped)



This is the car getting another alignment and height adjustment to see if they could fix the problems from the first alignment. As seen here the rear has been lifted compared to earlier (you can see the guy under the ramp doing it). Front has been lowered a bit but could use a touch more.



You also keep going on about fender mods and doubting that I actually had the guards cut (not just rolled).



So here is a picture of my guards being modified.


As for "I made that car lol" that is utter bullshit. I was modifying the E90 long before you even joined up here and got your car. Anyone from the Australian scene knows it and would laugh at you if you thought that you made the car..

Then there is "I helped bring this car to where it is actually is as he was already parting out and stock again until I posted my wheels for sale."

In case you misunderstood, I had already parted out well over a year ago I wasn't just parting out back to stock then... Not gonna lie, when I saw your wheels for the first time it was the only set (at that time) that I really wanted. So when it came up for sale I thought I may as well buy it for some fun. The aim was to have them on for summer time here then sell them off and go back to stock again... Not that it summer/winter makes much difference here anyway. I don't see how sitting in Canada and just selling me some wheels somehow makes you the person who 'helped bring this car to where it is.' People who helped get it to where it is are the people who did the work here in Sydney... Not you sitting half way across the world going "drop it/less camber/cut guards/perfect offsets etc.." Just because the wheels were yours it doesn't mean you own the right to claim any credit for what other people did. I've noticed it in what you post recently, and I don't know if others have too but you need to stop acting like you own people and have God's word about stance. Yes your stance is very good (not as good as that Tee dude though) but you need to relax a bit.

Tl:dr -

Long story short, the rears worked 100% when first mounted but ever since the first alignment it has started being a pain. Hence the rear is jacked up high. It's not that I don't want to make them fit but I just can't be bothered right now. Currently I've got my eyes on an iPE F1 exhaust and widebody kit for my C63 so I might just sell the wheels and move on to bigger and better things with the Merc.

Lol at creaminz and the ownage. I'll post a new pic of mine.

It's got all the popular coupe mods but on a vert. Not sure I have a true twin.

But cool thread!
