I love this car. I got the tinting done yesterday after spending the morning cleaning. It's 15% all the way around.

I'm debating with myself over whether I want to put the Eibach lowering springs on it or not. I have them, but I wonder how much it will affect ride quality. I have QA1's on the front, stock shocks in the rear. Anyone got an opinion?

You'll need a WW lowering kit for the rear shocks.

Photo Tip - Turn the front wheels the other way and show off the CCW bling instead of the Japanese tire tread.

Can you expound on the WW lowering kit? What is that? The car came from KGoch, he had the springs on it at some point, and I have the QA1 shocks for the rear of the car sitting on my shelves in the garage. He's also put in the Spectreworks bushings, though I'm not sure that has anything to do with this.

What parts come in the lowering kit?

Thanks! Yah, I really like them. I generally find that the stock wheels are the best looking choice for the V, but the SP600 are wheels I would have picked myself. I was lucky to find a car with an owner who had good taste. They are beautiful. Also, a PITA to keep clean.

Netsloth -very nice wheels, but imagine how much better they would look without the ugly rusted lock-nuts. Call Luke at Lindsay for a set of lock-nut caps, if you don't have the outside threaded ones, get a new lock nut set. :thumbsup:

Much better.

And you may already have the WW rear shock mod. Ask KGoch...

Nice car! Nice guy who I had the chance to eat lunch with at Summit Point. Hope he returns with an 09 V!

Yah, he's super nice. When I flew up, he was nice enough to pick me up and ferry me around to take care of the tag and such. He took most of his day helping me with buying and showing me the particulars of the car.

I love the car. He's a car guy who really has a passion for his rides. I was lucky to find this one.

Sounds like kgoch put it back to stock before selling it to you if you have all the parts sitting on a shelf.
