Wow, I didn't know the Eibach resulted in such an aggressive drop. But it looks great! How is the ride quality and how does the car fare over bumps?

I'm guessing those are the sportline springs which do provide some decent lowering.

yeah i didnt think it was going to be so low either. it does rub a little in the front of bumps on corners. and a little on big bumps.

not sure which ones, how can i tell? they didnt say on the springs themselves...

some of its clean :3_chubby: and as for the camera, i used my palm treo this time instead of my samsung a900. i think its a little better. we have alot of planned work on it in the next few weeks so i'm going to save my time washing it inbetween :) i will get some clean pictures eventually. i also cleaned up the black box with all the wires coming out in my engine compartment too but don't have pictures of it. looks way better though. i'll get new engine pictures as soon as i get my 70mm tb and black powdercoated valve covers on :D
