I'm no photographer. Plus its very cold, and sprinkling rain, So snapped the pics and ran inside!! Sorry the car is pretty dirty, and yes yes I know the rotors are a bit rusty. Its been storming and raining for the past few days so the car hasn't been driven I didn't even notice the rust till I seen the photos. I'm going to take her around the block a few times to clean them up.

Raceland coilovers
Velocity Motorcars Adjustable Swaybar End Links
Velocity Motorcars 10mm hub centric wheels spacers all around.
OEM Sport Style 96 Wheels 17x8 on 225/45/ZR17 OEM Continentals, can't remember factory offset off the top of my head..




I know the racelands are not the most favored suspension out there. Mind you, I don't track this car. Its an automatic. I have a boosted 7g Celica 6 speed for having that kind of fun. The car still has tons of drivability for how low it is. It goes over train tracks and in and out of gas stations frequently with usually very little sign of how low it really is. Ive yet to do any damage to my fenders, or my undercarriagR. The Racelands have been on the car now for almost a year. No noises. No thumps or knocks. They ride amazing, and handle great too. Minimal body roll. To be completely honest. The ride quality is better in my BMW than you would expect. No complains from them here. I purchased them when they were all the drama. I decided to try them out, after a few months of watching others buy them and report on them. Worst case scenario, they ride like poop and crap out after a few winter months, I'll go get a new nice, major brand name coilover set, but I honestly have nothing bad to say!

Yeah if I go m3 bumper I definitely will have to raise it up. The stock sport bumper does not hang low at all in comparison to M3. No mods to the body. I have never cut on this car. Everything is still 100% reversible. Just measured carefully and did my research to know exactly what I could run and how low.

Rolled fenders?
Nope. Everything you see was bolt on! For anyone looking into racelands, you NEED spacers to clear the wheel from the strut. Atleast on 8" wide tires. The insides of the my front fenders have some some rub marks from pulling into gas stations with the wheels at full lock, and yes, I can do full lock.

That's pretty sick. I'd get some clears though.
Thanks! Means a lot! :thumbsup:


I debated heavily on clear corners, but for some reason I don't find the amber so offensive on the steel gray. I've got a new sport wheel coming in the mail to replace mine since the leather is starting to show some wear. M3 LED tails are coming too! I will be doing some work over the next couple of months.

Where in indy are you?
I'm in Fountain county, hillbilly nation! Closest to Crawfordsville, which is in Montgomery, but its the closest city on the map. My chick lives in Terra Haute. So I frequent there as well!


Steel blue?
Silver Grey?

Thank you. I'm pretty anal about it. My friends hate me lol.

I used to have a Audi A4 B5 Quattro 2.8l so I respect your car as well!

Thanks for all the comments guys!
