Thought I'd share a few pics I took at the park the other day. Only mods I might want to do to change the look would be a power bulge in the hood (after ESS TS2 though, whenever that happens), and might lower it a little someday although the stock ZHP stance isn't bad at all IMHO.

These pics are after installing the 5mm/10mm spacer setup

Theirs nothing wrong with that. I would take a jet black zhp sedan over a tiag m3 simply because of the looks.

Nice car OP :thumbsup:
