Hey everyone, wasn't sure whether to post here or in the gallery, so i'll post here.

Had my car for 4 months, finally was able to get/afford my dream car....anyways, i didn't waste much time and started playing with it

bought it cpo, '06 AW/IR premium pkg, 19s, nav, 6spd, etc.

Went to JIC and they hooked it up with Cross Competition coilovers w/camber plates and rear shock mounts as well as their enhanced/improved full exhaust system (cat-back) i think i'm one of the first to have their updated exhaust.....i will be going back to JIC this friday, so i'll post sound sound clips of the exhaust....the exhaust is nice, not too loud or raspy, just right for my liking. The coilovers are awesome, tho they have a very conservative drop, the feel is excellent.....i believe this setup is highly recommended for the track

After installing the coilovers, there was the problem of ride height....i took it back to JIC and John, their tech, took it in and took off the lower spring seats of the rear and it dropped 3/4-1' more, im happy with the height as i can daily drive it.....there is no clunking noise, no squeaks, no problems.

just waiting for tires....

more to come in the next couple of months

I only like that lip when it's painted... but other than the reflectors, welcome to the AWM club! It's a nice feeling being able to afford your dream car, eh?
