Just Lowered on TEIN Springs

[EDIT] More pictures on page 2 [/EDIT]

Just had my car lowered today at Vivid Racing here in Chandler, AZ. Thought you guys might like to see the end result. I'll probably put on the Breytons tomorrow.

I liked the stance the Tein S-tech gave on my old ride, but it was too bouncy that I would bottom out A LOT.

I came from Japanese cars before European cars and have had TEIN, Eibachs, H&Rs, H-Sports, Intrax, and KWs. So far TEINs have been the best. Plus I got a smoking deal on these springs courtesy of another member here on E90post, SES_D.

They are perfect man. Thanks for the quick shipping!

I think the poor ride most people complain about comes from the larger wheels and tires, I might be wrong though. I'm putting on my 19s today, so I'll find out.

I think the labor came out to like something just under $400. The labor rate is $95/hr.

Looks nice. Not too low like a lot of other cars with springs and coilovers. Just enough.

Your going to feel like the car is floating. Having NON-RFT tires are definately essential to the rides smoothness.
