    I've gotten pretty good at dipping. Just don't be afraid to leave a little line break and get some on the paint. I promise it comes right off. I took a lot of the pieces off the car so they are on pretty thick.

    Thanks, ill have to check that out. Is there a thread on how to take off some of the chrome? Side vents (if possible) and large rear chrome piece specifically.

    ----------

    I just had the dealer sync the new tire pressure sensors to the car, works like stock!

    the rear bumper piece you have to take the bumper off. I think I responded to a thread somewhere about taking off the door trims. just know for the front door the mirror has to come off. hood chrome pops right off from under the hood. Trunk piece has like 4 screws once you remove the trunk trim.

    Thanks for the info! Sooo the Eibachs came in today, now to get them installed. I am being quoted $250 to get these things in. Is that about right? Thanks.

    The car looks great with the D3's. I hope the Eibachs will give it the same look.

    Thank you! I at times feel it could be lower in the front but I do not want to cut the springs and don't feel it's worth $2500 kw's actually interested in d3's rear diffuser

    Tire size: 245-35-20 & 275-35-20

    Ride is definitely more rough, however, not bad enough to bother me. I used to drive a cobalt ss/sc so that was bumpy too. If you are in it for the comfort, I don't recommend.

    Ughh well unfortunately after talking with him again it was $175 for rear, then another $175 for the front... However, its at a local shop in Austin. I'm still going to get it done. I'm not going to try and mess with it myself. Not enough time on my hands to deal with problems.
