    Re: Drop BBK Corsa and 24s

    ok, sorry for the late response but the guys i hired to clean out my garage decided to put my extra wheels way in the back of the garage and couldnt get to them. but I was able to get to the 24 inch replica with nexxen roadian tire in 305/30/24 and it weight in at 91.5 lbs. I do not know what the tire weighs alone, and I also couldnt get to my wheel that isn't mounted, but i will respond if I ever do. It's stuck behind my factory wheels and my black 22 inch wheels alone with other wheels for my other cars.

    Hey Soulsea you really did an excellent job! The way you were looking after so many tiny details is gorgeous!
    I'm still thinking of a drop kit for mine but I will then use only 22" wheels maybe platinum style reps in black-chrome.
    @ Hemmissey: I think the effect of such a wrap will be great ! Let us know when you start that project...
    I my self am thinking about dewrapping mine and giving him a sort of a flame wrapping as former drag cars had but in a neon green! We will see I'm also a fan of blackchrom cars and a good friend of mine has a car wrapping company... I get hardly every week new ideas of doing a new wrapping...

    Can the bell tech lowering kit be put on an AWD 08?

    I was apprehensive about the Corsa because it is really loud, especially at startup. Also because it uses the louder Sport muffler and not the tamer Touring one. But everyone familiar with the kit assured me that you'll hear it when you step on it, at cruising speed it is barely audible and absolutely zero drone at highway speeds ... this is in fact how it turned out, so I'm very happy with it.

    I can't think of a reason it couldn't ... my truck is AWD and it's the same kit for all 07+.

    In my opening post I linked the vendor's thread where I purchased it ... you could always post in that thread to ask so that you are sure.

    That's a tough one to predict, it really depends where you live.

    I've had heard of drops installed for as little as $400 and when I lived up in DC there was only one shop that did them and they charged a little more than $700.

    I can't tell you how much mine cost exactly cause it was done at a friends shop along with the exhaust and big brake kit, and he gave me a great price for the whole thing without itemizing the different jobs.

    I went back to the same spot to take some after pics after the slight additional rear drop to see if it shows the difference:

    It's always the same about those small details.
    It just perfectly suits your car and makes it one of a kind! That's why your car is boss like! I like your front grill and the color trim of your ride!
    And the way your back looks like completes the whole impression of your car (Something you don't see everyday)
    GREAT JOB and carry on! Hope we will see more of your ride.
    P.S.: what did you do in the interior?

    That's why I like the premium as well. Grill, trim, vents, applique are all color-matched instead of chrome

    Nothing. His interior is completely stock.
