How do you like the intakes?

Looks like you have the tire size for the rear listed wrong as the back should be 245-40 and you have 224-40 listed on the page :)

Nice car. Spacers in the rear can fill out the wells better.

Thank you Joe for the compliment. Audtatious has recommend spacers to fill out the wheel wells. Sounds like a great idea. When I can afford it, that will probably be my next mod.

Here's my coupe with 15mm spacers. Looks like you have some room as well.

Very nice car! The spacers really make a difference. Your car looks great. Thanks for sending the photo so I could see just how good it looks with the spacers. I think that will be my next mod.

Audtatious, Do you have any problem with the tires rubbing with the spacers? They really look great on your car.

yes and no. I didn't have any rubbing until I put some softer rear springs on and the rubbing is the fender liner being hit. I've cut some of it out but not enough it seems. I also threw the alignment out a bit a few weeks ago when adjusting the ride height so it's primarily the passenger side rear. Once I get camber set properly I should not have any issue.....I had no issue at all with the stiffer springs.

With the 15mm springs I'm running a 30mm offset (factory coupe rear offset is 45mm). People are running 25mm on the coupe with little problem and some are going even more aggressive when using additional negative camber. I want camber "in spec" since I use this as my DD. Now, the vert rear rims are 30mm offset from the factory but the fenders allow for more room to use spacers. I would use a tape measure to see how far the tire is from the lip and determine spacer width by that.

Thanks for the info on the spacers. I'm going to do some research to fully understand the spacers, offset, camber, etc. so I know what the hell I'm doing.
