    Nice, we appreciate your business! We were actually talking about you the other day. The topic of conversation was veteran forum members and he was saying how you just got a 16/17.

    I think we all started back in late 2011 to early 2012

    I really like the look of these! Nice choice.

    225 tyres are a good choice to make sure they tuck when you lower it. Keep in mind the Eibachs are only a modest drop.

    Thanks!

    Yep. exactly why I am going with Eibach. Want to keep as much ride quality as possible this time around.

    Looks good. I like those, even though I'm still not a big fan of black wheels.

    What ever happened to the F10's? Loved that look.
