    Default Coilovers and Showroom Shined.

    As the first thread was lost due to the hacker here it is again but with different piccies.
    Coilovers have now been wound all the way down and as i'm off to the Luton cruise tonight i gave the car a quick once over with the Showroom Shine.

    First picture is from the Redline rolling road day taken by IanHighlander and is before the coilovers were fitted.

    Sorry for the poor picture quality as i can't find my camera so taken on my iPhone.

    It's not that bad, just have to go over them really slowly, i haven't had a problem with my exhaust (touch wood) as had an MIJ system fitted so if i did it would be an expensive mistake.

    Not too sure on the handling at the mo as need to get camber and tracking done.
    As for noises, yes there is a few. Slight twang from the front and a very light knock from the rear.
