Didn't know you had em. Tempted to make them the next purchase & push the build back a little more. Coilovers transformed the car, could only imagine those sways..

They transformed the car and I am only on springs. I bet with coils they would be amazing. One of the problems is they don't make sets of them very often.





The rear one was easy to do cause I did it when I installed my exhaust. You do have to at least drop the mufflers down to do it if you are not doing exhaust at the same time from what I had read. The front one is a much bigger pain from what the shop told me. Had them install it when I had my front upper and lower control arm bushings installed. They said they had to drop the subframe a bit to get it in. Believe they just loosened the bolts enough to lower it about 1in though.

I am just being VERY diligent on the info I can source in this thread and what I have read on other Forums.

Like to be informed.....just in case.

Like what I am seeing here though, I do keep a look out anytime I am in the Oakville/Burlington area, on the off chance I see the 'Black Mamba' blow by.

Hard to blow by anything on the QEW through the Oakville/Burlington stretch, traffic is a joke but I do take full advantage of any gap I can find..

Aside from gas mileage, these things are as bulletproof as it gets, especially considering the power they put down stock. There are horror stories of guys getting the dreaded low oil pressure symptom but that's more on modded examples than anything.

I know, QEW traffic is bad at the best of times.

Early weekend mornings or late evenings are usually pretty good.....which is helpful for a blacked out rocket.

Wife already gave the okay for a purchase, I just have to get rid of the other project/parts.

I figure with that, I am good as gold to pull the trigger when the time is right!

You're on there WAY before me! Must be fantastic to drive on that at that time of day with three lanes open for shenanigans!

I know, was pleasantly surprised she agreed to it.

What are you looking for? Sedan I'm assuming? Auto or 6MT? Recaro's? Low mileage?

Just say the word and I'll find it..

That hood is absolutely beautiful. I really want one but would paint everything but the center of it. Wish I could find one local and save on shipping for sure.

Or you can just CF or vinyl wrap the OG center
CF hood isn't a big weight cut, so if it's just the look..

the cowl in the middle of the hood is taller, makes it look much more aggressive

I bought the last one but it didn't fit the S4 the way I expected it to.
I'm shipping it back to them today.
