Alpine White is my favorite. Never BLACK, don't even think about it. Looks like crap after 2 years and shows every single imperfection.

Is the top picture the before or after? All coupes come with sports suspension. The Pro-kit has a very minimal drop from sports suspension (0.75 front, 0.25 rear).The sportline is more than that.

I'd contact Koni, I think they have lifetime warranty. My konis have been on for 40k miles/5 years and definitely don't look like that. That being said, my car hasn't seen snow or a harsh climate.

I'm not sure i'll be able to bend this one back. It seems "twisted." Also, the little bump on the bumper that I think the clip "attaches" to is a little deformed. Do you know how to replace the clip?
