A few snow + car pics

Had to get a shot of this drift and thought I might as well get the car in too




New front bumper going on Thursday so it'll hopefully look a bit better than this





I'm liking how the 275's fill it right out

You git! I thought that but didn't mention it. I'm not lying when I say I've just been looking at coilovers on the net then come back to find that picture you've edited. Nice job Am, it's tempting

They're ET35 front and ET38 rear. These don't rub at all, I cross a humped level crossing everyday on my work run, it's in an NSL and I gave it some beans last week trying to get it to rub but it never did

A matter of taste

To me it looks like the suspension has collapsed. For British roads, mods like just look a bit silly to my eye. Looks and vanity before functionality and safety will never seem like a good compromise.

No, not M3. I've had the carbon corner splitters moulded on and blended in and all painted SG. I needed it as this bumper is not in the best shape due to me catching at on a kerb 3 times

The 275 rear tyres look phat! Really not suited to snow though....

Look forward to seeing the new bumper!

So you're going to be extra careful with your new splitters then eh?

Nice pics BTW - you were anxious about not having your winters on last week, I take it you got on OK??

Yeah I will be extra careful, this is one of the things holding me off lowering it.

I got on fine without the winters but that's because I haven't really had to drive the car uphill on any snow. Me and a couple of neighbours cleared our street over the weekend so it's problem solved for now.
