So i am debating on the aero mirrors - the flag's aren't that bad honestly... we'll see what i do but i am in no hurry to install i suppose.

In the meantime - attached are a few snaps i took this morning after a drive:

I love the wheels! Curious, what are the widths on the wheels, it almost looks like you could go wider tires in back although I’m not sure if you would be hitting the oil line or not.

Thanks! I am digging them as well. Front is 8.5", rear is 10"

Definitely could go wider tires in the rear i think. With these tire widths, there is a small/mild stretch in the rear which is ok, but i would prefer it be a bit meatier to match the fronts. Researching a bit before i do anything as i do not want to damage the AWD system.

So i have been chewing up the front driver side sidewall with the fender lip on hard cornering. I plan to roll the fenders a bit and get an alignment this weekend to correct that issue. Not the best picture, but you can see the slices in the rubber and the pieces still hanging on/sticking out near the bottom.

Also plan to see if the rear can be lowered a bit, i think it can be, hoping that will help close the gap and save me from having to buy a set of coilovers for awhile.

See page 4 if you hadn't already. It address the spot that rubs the front tire. Since putting 225's on my car I need to do the same thing.

Great! Thanks for sharing.

I rolled the fender and that helps as well.

I was able to close the fender gaps on my adjustable Koni suspension - i have about a one finger gap all around which is exactly what i wanted.

Looks great! What kind of specs did you go with on the alignment/ride heights? I'm due for an alignment soon as I just got new sticky tires- yeah! Thinking of just trying stock alignment with some additional -camber to keep the outside fronts from disappearing.

nice mods so far

those wheels look cool and different but to my eye the cup 1's just look more 'right'

I finally decided to install the aero mirrors and while i was at it i had a set of OEM center caps painted to try and better match the wheels.




Below are a few pics from this weekend of the new set up:



No immediate plans for any other mods at the moment - lots more i'd like to do, but don't plan to do anything other than drive it for the rest of the year.

Very nice! The stance with the Koni suspension is outstanding. Combined with the aero mirrors, the car looks like it’s still in motion even while parked.
